Why the engine is different from the SL55

Discussion in '2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG' started by SL55 AMG, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. This car is gr8, but why they filled it with the old 55 AMG engine?
    i mean the new ///AMG 55 supercharged engine in the SL have 100 more hp, if they put it in this car, which is a hundred kg lighter ,it would be gr8.

    The majority of the people who can afford to buy such cars dont care about details
     
  3. Re: Why the engine is different from the SL55

    Try to imagine how an SL 55 owner will feel if a 70k CLK55 acclerates faster,handles better,better power-to-weight ratio than their 100k plus machines.<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    First off, this sin't the old 5.5 l engine. The old engine had 349 hp, this has 367. And secondly, this is not a supercar like the SL55. This is a coupé and 367 hp are totally enough, maybe even too much. COmpare it with the M3's 343 hp.<!-- Signature -->

    If 367 Hp is enough didn't they fit it with the 32 amg engine? it's a 3.2 6 cylinder with 357 Hp, this one is an 8 cylinder 5.5 L, it consumes twice as much as the 32 model.. silly choice i think....

    a V8 is more prestigeous !!!

    the CLK would be much faster then the SL55 AMG if it had 500bhp
    thats the main reason <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
    i definitly would like to see such an engine on the CLK... If i had the money <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">


    and people that buy these cars (my dad) DO care about the details.
    well my dad is an exception, he didn't even know how much BHP his car had <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    if it was me i woudn't buy the car because of its looks
    i would pay attention to the look at little bit and the details way more

    the details are the most important part of the car<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
