WHATIS IT? MercedesBenz SLK 55 AMG WHYTHE FUSS Ultimate tweak of the new drop­top WHEN’S IT HERE? 2012 HOW­MUCH? About $150,000 WE haven’t even seen the all-new Mercedes-Benz SLK in Aus­tralia but al­ready the go­faster crew at AMG in Ger­many are work­ing on their flag­ship. The next SLK 55 should be here next year with AMG’s lat­est 5.5-litre V8 un­der the bon­net and a bunch of other up­grades to the sus­pen­sion, brakes, tyres and wheels. Carparazzi caught the car out­side a McDon­ald’s, prov­ing that even AMG en­gi­neers have to eat, dur­ing track tests in Ger­many. The ob­vi­ous keys to an AMG up­grade are all vis­i­ble, from cross-drilled brake discs and big­ger wheels to a four-pipe ex­haust sys­tem. Next, ex­pect a Black Se­ries SLK workover.
