The Mercedes SL550 is the ultimate performance machine, exuding performance and the highest in luxury.  Powered by a 4.6-liter V8 twin-turbo, this roadster provides 429 horsepower of fun.  Not only can it get to 60 MPH in 4 and a half seconds, but it has an EPA rating of 25 MPG on the highway and 20 MPG combined city and highway – better than the others in its class.

What will probably surprise you is the amount of storage and cabin room the SL550 has.  It’s not usually a requirement of a speedy sports car, but Mercedes gives it to you all the same.  Another plus is all the fun tech and gadgets on the dash, including Bluetooth hands-free capability and navigation.

In one review from Free Press, the review states, “The electric power steering is fast and direct, with good on-center feel. The adjustable suspension provides a comfortable ride and keeps the car stable under acceleration and in quick maneuvers. Big, vented disc brakes have good pedal feel and provide excellent stopping power.”
