Mercedes Benz x Ducati – SLK 55 AMG + Streetfighter 848

By - December 5th, 2011

Having teamed up in November 2010, Mercedes-AMG and Ducati are celebrating the one-year anniversary of their partnership with the unveiling of an SLK 55 AMG and Ducati Streetfighter 848, both finished in striking Streetfighter Yellow, at the Bologna Motor Show. The SLK 55 AMG’s interior features the distinctive yellow shade as well, in the form of contrast stitching at the sport steering wheel, seats and dash, plus door sill plates that light up in the same hue. If there’s enough customer demand, it’s a color that could officially enter AMG’s personal options list. In terms of specs, neither model has undergone any performance modifications. The SLK 55 AMG remains the most powerful SLK built to date, with a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 good for 422-horsepower. The Streetfighter 848, meanwhile, boasts a revised 848 Testastretta 11 engine producing an output of 132-horsepower. Check out additional looks after the click. via: Autoblog
