Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG (2004-2011)

Despite the huge V8 engine shoehorned under the bonnet of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG the taut chassis and agile handling manage to cope with the enormous power but that doesn’t stop it from being a bit of a handful. It may not have the finesse of the Porshe Boxster S but that doesn’t stop the Mercedes SLK 55 AMG from being a hoot to drive. The sleek shape of the standard Mercedes was muscled up with air vents and spoilers giving clues to the high performance on tap.

Equipment levels are impressive as you would expect from a roadster of this price. Build quality and finish are also exceptional.
