Mercedes SL55 AMG

 

Most Mercedes-Benz cars do not make it onto our radar, but we have to admit some of their AMG cars are probably worth mentioning. We stumbled upon this fine example of a SL55 AMG. While the SL series can be a bit heavy, the SL55 AMG does at least have a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 with 510 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque, though it was only available with a 5 speed automatic. The big downer on the car was the handling, but with a curb weight of over 4300 lbs (in a 2 seater!?!?) one can see why it was a problem. The car does have all the fancy luxury items though and with the retractable hard top, it would be a wonderful cruiser.
