Mercedes-Benz had just revealed their most powerful compact hard-top convertible, the SLK55 AMG! Not officially shown to the public yet, but Mercedes-Benz had already released official photos and details of this brutal convertible ahead of it’s public debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show this mid-September.
Let’s start with what our eyes can see. A full AMG bodykit had been installed to the car, with a more aggressive front bumper design with integrated LED day-time-running lights and side air-intakes. There is a subtle side skirt on the sides. And for the rear, we get a slightly wider bumper, a small boot lid spoiler, rear diffuser, and quad oval exhaust pipes instead of the trapezoidal shaped pipes from other AMG models.
