Get ready for the Summer with this rare Mercedes SL55 AMG F1 Performance Pack. The engine on this flagship model was individually hand assembled by AMG engineers to offer a truly dynamic driving experience.
The enhanced dynamic characteristics of this car relate to an extensive range of revisions to its body – engine cooling system, bigger brakes, suspension, limited slip diff, wider rear track plus other small interior and exterior tweaks. The larger cooling-air intakes and an additional engine-oil cooler ensure that the AMG V8 super-charged engine is maintained at the optimum operating temperatures during aggressive driving. SL55 AMG with the Performance Package also draws on its Formula 1 counterpart when it comes to the chassis set-up, together with the choice of wheels and tyres. The Mercedes-Benz AMG engineers based the configuration on the set-up used on the official FIA Safety Car on all the F1 Grand Prix circuits. This car was factory de-restricted, giving it a top speed in excess of 200 mph. Finished in Silver with unmarked leather trim and beautifully crafted leather steering wheel, this is a truly fantastic super-car at a fraction from the price when new, which was in excess of £120,000.
It is a very fair assumption that this version of the amazing SL55 will become a future classic, and should hold its value very well.
