- PRESS RELEASE
Zawawi Trading Company (ZTC), the general distributor for Mercedes-Benz in Oman has launched the most powerful SLK of all time in the Sultanate.
Forming part of the third-generation of the SLK, the new top-of-the range AMG's eye-catching and unmistakable expressive design featuring cutting edge technologies - including the world premiere panoramic vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL - demonstrates its individuality even at first glance.
The SLK 55 AMG's V8 engine delivers superior power and a furious aural experience that only a large-displacement eight-cylinder engine can provide. For the first time AMG is using a sports exhaust system featuring an exhaust flap on each side, providing an AMG V8 roar when driving in a sporty manner and a more discreet engine note in the partial load range. Power is transferred to the rear wheels by means of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission which features three transmission modes: "Controlled Efficiency" (C), Sport (S) and Manual (M).
Distinctive AMG light-alloy wheels, specific SLS supercar inspired AMG bodystyling with AMG spoiler lip and two chrome-plated twin tailpipes at the rear complement the classic roadster proportions, while adding a markedly athletic touch. MAGIC SKY CONTROL switches the glass roof to light or dark as required at the press of a button.
High levels of driving dynamics are ensured, thanks to the AMG sports suspension with Direct-Steer system, Torque Vectoring Brakes and 3-stage ESP, as well as the AMG high-performance braking system. The Intelligent Light System (ILS) comes standard.
An optionally available AMG Handling package enhances the vehicle's sportiness even further via AMG Performance suspension, AMG rear axle differential lock, composite brake discs at the front and a three-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel finished in nappa leather with Alcantara inserts in the grip areas.
David Swain, General Sales Manager - Automotive, Zawawi Trading Company, said: "With exterior and interior design based on the ground-breaking SLS AMG supercar, and a barrage of the latest engine, handling, safety and assistance technologies, the SLK 55 AMG has made massive evolutionary leap from its predecessor. The arrival of this new roadster is sure to impress our customers craving the performance, excitement and pure driving pleasure that the SLK 55 AMG can deliver."
ZTC is inviting customers to view the new SLK 55 AMG at Zawawi Mercedes-Benz showrooms across Oman now, for a personalised consultation.
