The outstanding performance of the SLK 32 is provided by a V6 engine developed by Mercedes-AMG, using extremely load and temperature-resistant components from motorsport. The heart of this six-cylinder unit is an innovative helical supercharger which generates a high charge pressure even at low engine speeds and thereby produces remarkable torque characteristics. Expressed in figures, 90 percent of the maximum torque – more than 400 Newton metres – is already available from 2300 rpm. The SLK 32 AMG require just 5.2 seconds to accelerate from standstill to 62 mph. The SLK 32 is therefore in the same performance category as thoroughbred sports cars – though with the everyday practicality typical of a Mercedes.


Maintaining the dynamism of a manual transmission while offering the comfort of an automatic transmission – this was the development objective for the automatic transmission with AMG SPEEDSHIFT function, which is standard equipment in the SLK 32 AMG.

With AMG SPEEDSHIFT, a slight movement of the gearshift lever to the left, for instance, is all it takesfor the transmission immediately to select the best gear for powerful acceleration, depending on the current speed and the pre-stored engine manegement data. Likewise the transmission will automatically carry out a downshift when a certain braking deceleration is reached, selecting the correct gear for the driving situation. Conversely, the transmission reliably maintains the selected gear when negotiating a bend at speed and thereby avoids any load change reactions. Faster, much more responsive gear changes and a torque converter lockup above first gear round off the innovative configuration of AMG SPEEDSHIFT.

AMG Sport Suspension

The sporty suspension configuration of the SLK 32 AMG meets the need of the more adventurous driver for optimum road contact and a low degree of roll on fast bends – while maintaining consistently high long-distance comfort. Spring struts and gas-pressure shock absorbers by Mercedes-AMG and specially developed torsion bar stabilisers make this ideal solution possible.

In addition to the standard Electronic Stability Program ESP with Brake Assist and acceleration skid control, it is particularly the fade-resistant, high-performance AMG braking system that guarantees a high level of handling safety. Generously dimensioned, internally ventilated disc brakes at front and rear – the front discs are also perforated in the case of the SLK 32 AMG – ensure braking deceleration at the highest level.


Sportiness and exclusivity predominate in the interior of the SLK 32 AMG. The AMG leather-covered steering wheel and the newly-developed, highly contoured AMG sports seats ensure optimum road contact and perfect lateral support even when taking bends at high speed. Two-tone leather upholstery available as an option at no extra cost and leather-lined interior door panels create a luxurious atmosphere and enhance the ride in the SLK 32 AMG even further. An additional, sporty note is struck by the newly designed instrument cluster with its 300-km/h speedometer dial.
