The Mercedes-Benz SLK
Class and its high-performance 55 AMG edition is a sparkling gem in the automaker's lineup that too often seems to be overlooked. First and foremost: like any Mercedes-Benz
, it's not cheap. The SLK has a base price of almost $48,000 and the 55 AMG is closer to $70,000. For 2011, there hasn't been any mention of the 55 AMG in the lineup. Interesting, but not surprising considering its price. The standard SLK remains featuring the hard-top folding roof.
