The design and technology employed in the second generation SLK-Class places even greater emphasis on sports performance. With a more powerful engine, redesigned suspension, direct steering feel and a responsive six-speed manual shift system. The SLK AMG 55's body size has grown by 2.8 inches in length and 2.5 inches in width.

The SLK AMG 55 wears an aggressive body with multiple air intakes, some aspects of the body look 'aftermarket' a trait not normally assocciated with Mercedes.
A long bonnet coupled with a steeply raked windscreen and short boot are the typical characteristics of a roadster and the SLK AMG 55 uses these proprtions to its benefit.
The 2004 - on SLK AMG 55 uses the same distinctive arrow-like tapering bonnet bulge seen on the Mercedes Mclaren SLR.
