2012 Mercedes SLK55 AMG will be revealed this fall

The 2012 Mercedes SLK55 AMG will have its debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show this year, or at least this is what we've heard from different sources.
There won't be a lot of time after the premier and the model will go on sale. The problem is we don't know the price yet. The SLK55 AMG will have a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine that will be able to produce 420 horsepower, with aroud 70 horsepower more than the generation before. Let's say that even if 420 horsepower is not a lot, for this model and its size it's more than enough.
When it comes to efficiency, the SLK 55 AMG is 30 % more efficient that the generation before and the CO2 emissions are 200 g / km. The model features a Start/Stop technology.
Daimler offers the SLK250 CDI, if what you want is a diesel engine. This model will feature a 2.1-liter turbodiesel engine able to deliver 204 horsepower.
We will keep you in touch with the future information.
