2002 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Kompressor

The fifth generation of the legendary SL series of two door convertible sports cars was known as the R230. It featured a fully retractable hardtop that was marketed as the Vario Roof, a first for the SL class although it had been available on the smaller SLK model since 1997. The flagship models were built by AMG in the form of the SL55 and SL65, both highly tuned versions of the SL500 and SL600 respectively. The SL55 was powered by a mighty supercharged version of the 5.5 litre, V8 which produced 493bhp and achieved 0-62 in 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph (governed). In theory, the SL55 could reach 190mph if the car was derestricted but, for many, the acceleration and top speed is impressive enough in its standard form!
This Supercharged version of the Mercedes SL was registered in October 2002.Originally blue, this SL was professionally wrapped by Evolution Customs in Dunfermline in 2015 and now presents stunningly as a replica of a Formula One pace car in silver, red and black. This sleek look is enhanced with black alloys and AMG decals. This head-turning Mercedes is offered to auction with a V5C registration and a fresh MoT test certificate and is available without reserve.
