First official pictures of the slightly facelifted 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG leaked on web just days after the German company published the official data on 2008 SLK.

The AMG version exterior design remains almost unchanged, as well as on a technical level. The power is provided by the well known 5.5-litre V8 engine that develops 360 hp and a peak torque of 510 Nm. The data was released with facelifted 2008 SLK, but without official pictures.

A few cosmetic changes have been applied on the outgoing 2007 model such as the new front apron with a black-painted cross strut and side air outlets, darkened headlamps, and different rear bumper.

SLK 55 AMG gets 7G-TRONIC Sport seven-speed automatic transmission fitted as standard, as well as a newly developed direct steering system with variable steering assistance. The direct-steer system is based on the previously installed speed-sensitive power steering system. It has a new rack with slick gearing, which ensures that the steering gear ratio changes in tune with the steering angle. At a steering angle of just 5 degrees, the ratio starts to increase extremely rapidly and the steering feels much more direct. As a result, the number of steering wheel revolutions from lock to lock is reduced by around 25 percent if the new direct steering is fitted.

The price of 2008 SLK 55 AMG is expected to be around approximately $99,170.
