2004 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG

Mercedes Benz - 2004 Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG - Garage

A Mercedes SL 55 AMG (R230). It has a 5.5 liter V8 and a Lysholm Kompressor (Supercharger) producing just under 500 HP. Mercedes says it will do 200 mph but honestly I doubt that. It is insanely fast though and extremely fun to drive. It is a convertible hardtop which I think looks great compared to the soft-tops. I have now owned this car for about 3/4 of a year and have had no problems with it. It drives really well and i have a much better feel for the car since i made this post. Now i don’t have a lot of experience driving different cars, but i have driven both an Aston Martin DB9 Convertible and a Ferrari 360 Spider, and this car feels faster and actually despite its heavy weight, it seems like it drives better. I drive this car every day to school and if i have time after homework i go out for night cruises (One of my favorite things to do) and sometimes weekend road trips. The car has 3 sport modes, paddle shift and Air suspension that you can raise and lower to 3 different levels. The main picture was taken at around 6 in the morning when i was out for a morning drive (Just Car Guy Things). The worst con of this car is that people don’t think i know anything about cars when i drive it, that i am some spoiled rich kid but i enjoy driving and cars. I definitely consider myself a massive petrol head. Thanks for reading.
