Is this 1-owner Mercedes SL55 AMG the perfect car? Fast, stylish, technological, luxurious, built like a Panzer tank and ready for open-air cruising, it might just be the Swiss Army knife of world-class motoring. The cool thing about a brand like Mercedes, or Swiss Army for that matter, is that they're really good at offering everything their clientele could ever want or need. So, looking for a low-mileage luxury car that's pretty much great at everything? This lavish Benz should be at the top of your list!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Despite their recent challenges, Mercedes-Benz is a very fortunate automaker. Not only do they have a great lineup of legendary, well-engineered cars, they also have a top notch in-house tuner brand that can take virtually anything the Benz boys produce and turn it into something REAL special. Fastidiously maintained by one serious car collector throughout its life, this clean SL shows the kind of mileage that, in the world of modern mobility, amounts to mere break-in time. The car's crisp Brilliant Silver Metallic 2-stage is exceptionally dynamic, and absolutely nails the formal appearance Daimler has spent over 100 years cultivating. Fit and finish is just as you'd expect from something that retailed for $128K. And overall, the car is an outstanding piece that mixes Old World craft with 21st century technology!

Like all of Daimler's best luxury metal, this drop-top's styling is brilliantly executed with elegant proportions that rightfully place form over function. At the front of the car, a combination of mesh and composite grilles cage a chrome, 3-point star between bright fog lights, a small Mercedes roundel and HID headlamps that feature a built-in washing system. Behind that grille, an angled hood leads the eye to factory-tint glass that's capped by a retractable hardtop. At the sides of that glass, a monochromatic profile plants prominent “V8 KOMPRESSOR” badging between a short antenna, silver cove spears and body-matched mirrors that back Euro-spec turn signals. And at the back of the car, a second mesh-filled valence frames polished exhaust tips beneath pristine taillights, a second 3-point star and chrome badging that proudly proclaims the car's AMG heritage.

ENGINE

Hoist the hood and you'll find a supercharged SOHC V8 that's so smooth it'll make you forget you're in a sports car. Based on the proven M112 V6, the all-aluminum engine is officially dubbed M113 because its design essentially added two cylinders. That hand-built mill, topped with aluminum, 3-valve heads, utilizes a 1-piece cam, fracture-split forged rods, a magnesium intake and SFI fuel injection to bump an Autobahn-baking 493 horsepower into 520 lb./ft. of continent-shifting torque. Along with providing the physical sensation of having a rocket engine strapped to your derriere, this Sports Light catapults to 60 MPH in a mere 4.5 seconds; and has no problem quickly reaching its electronically limited 155 MPH terminal velocity. Flick the key and the sophisticated powerplant lights off instantly, humming to life with a technical roar that seems to float through the tail pipes. And when you fully pressurize the electronic fuel injectors, the rich mill provides plenty of torque at any speed.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Under this classy roadster, rock-solid Mercedes engineering provides a luxurious ride that, while not too firm, also doesn't share the softer characteristics of a traditional luxury barge. That's because, like its engine, the car's undercarriage was completely massaged by AMG. An upgraded, fully independent suspension benefits from standard Active Body Control, 18-inch wheels and smooth-riding 225/40 and 285/35 Michelin Pilot Sports. One squeeze of the throttle and a 5-speed automatic transmission, finished with Mercedes' SpeedShift manumatic technology, streams seamless power through a highway-friendly rear end. Need to stop? No worries: a well-balanced 4-wheel disc brake system utilizes standard ABS, drilled rotors and AMG-branded calipers to provide a reliable, drama-free escape from virtually any speed. And when you're carving curves and tearing up the twisties, Electronic Stability Control combines with speed-sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering to ensure you arrive at your destination quickly and safely.

INTERIOR

Inside this fashionable land rocket, you'll find a Dark Grey cockpit that's Teutonic luxury at its finest. The car's seats, heated leather thrones which hide full power-adjustment under conservative AMG emblems, show virtually no wear at all. In front of those seats, a combination of analog and digital gauges is laid out in typical AMG fashion, with red pointers sweeping silver digits. Mercedes has become the savior of modern consoles by designing a tasteful piece that features a perfect combination of glossy wood and French-stitched leather. The driver spins a dark-trimmed steering wheel around AMG SpeedShift paddles and buttons for the car's top-notch infotainment. And that infotainment kicks of a roster of excellent amenities that includes dual-zone climate control and Mercedes famed KeylessGo system.
