i think i saw one of these V8 SLK55 or CLK three weeks ago. I was driving with my window down soaking up the cold fresh air and I hear ROARRRRRRRRRRR. I said what the hell I turn to see either Mustang, Comaro or Trusk and look what I find a Benz. I was suprised as hell, that exhaust was absolutely nasty. If you think muscle cars have a nice sound you should here this one even at cruise it was nasty. now imagine that when your pushing it and especially with a manual gear box OH MY GOD can we said shitting in my paints and blowing my load at the same time. Damn I wanted to get a closer look but I was comming up on my exit and he/she was already doing 70-80mph, 20mph over 55mph = one bad ticket.

Nasty in a good way or nasty in a bad way??

also you cant push it with manual gear box since they came with automatics.
SLK55 are not in North America yet.

front end looks very nasty because of the hood, rear end looks like a Lexus SC430, hope they are better than the old SLK, the old one is such crap, I don't recommand them to anyone, nothing but squeaks & rattles

the only other benz that even looks close to it is the SLR, but the SLR is twice the size and 10x more in price, so no you probally didn't see this car
