The perfect SLK: The R171 AMG. Mercedes really perfected the SLK with the R171 by putting the renowned 5.4L M113 V8 under the hood and sharpening up the body lines. From a performance standpoint, the car could get from zero to 60 mph in under 5 seconds and would leave any passersby in a blur. While perfectly adequate in its stock form, this example includes a plethora of tasteful performance modifications which add to the sporty appeal without disrupting its luxury-oriented roots. Aftermarket wheels and suspension ensure a taught and nimble ride while the resonator delete provides the V8 growl which AMG is so well known for. While 144k miles isn’t low, the M113 has proved itself as a reliable power plant and the recent maintenance offers additional peace of mind. For an enthusiast looking for a new addition to the garage, this SLK55 offers an affordable entrance into V8 AMG performance.
