|Mercedes Benz||R230 SL 55 AMG||2006|
The letter combination "SL" was introduced by Mercedes-Benz as an abbreviation for "super" and "light". This is mainly roadster. The Mercedes-Benz R 230 on October 13, 2001 presented on the German market and Mercedes-Benz plant Bremen produced. It is the successor of the Mercedes-Benz R 129 and has as a special feature as standard the active suspension Active Body Control (ABC). The ABC chassis is based on a steel suspension. Rolling and pitching movements of the body are almost completely compensated for during acceleration, cornering and braking by sensor signals and with the aid of special hydraulic cylinders on the axles. There were three AMG models. In 2001, the SL 55 AMG, the sports version of the SL 500, was launched. The most powerful and torquey model of the R 230 model at the time, it distanced itself from the standard models with a number of visual changes, such as a reshaped bumper with front spoiler and additional side skirts, dark-tinted rear turn signal and reversing lights, and a four-pipe exhaust system and "V8 KOMPRESSOR" lettering. Following the model update in 2008, the SL 63 AMG was introduced. In addition to the eight-cylinder model, a twelve-cylinder model was also offered as the SL 65 AMG. The last R 230 rolled off the production line on November 30. With the last SL 350 model produced, Mercedes-Benz produced a total of 169,434 cars. The successor R231 then replaced the R 230 in March 2012, which was, however, with more than ten years of production time one of the longest produced vehicles of its time.
