I snapped pictures of this supposid SLK-200 AMG in Ireland. I am not sure if they had made a AMG 200 in Europe as I am from the states. Any ideas?

Its an SLK200 with AMG wheels and an aftermarket spoiler (Mercedes has never put wing spoilers like that on the SLK).

Only one exhaust pipe also...

What year did Mercedes buy AMG? I suppose he could have taken the SLK 200 to AMG before they were part of Mercedes, but more likely a poser.

As pterion said, it's a post-facelift SLK200 Kompressor with an "/////AMG" badge. The spoiler is aftermarket. I don't even see the AMG name on the wheels so they may be just replicas.

Actually, you can still take your Mercedes to AMG and have them customize it. It costs big $$$, though. I took a tour of the Affalterbach facility 2 years ago and there were some pretty wild cars in there. The one I remember most was an right-hand-drive SL55 AMG painted in flat black (yeah, that's what the owner wanted and yeah, it looked like primer).

I would say poser since it doesn't look like it has any of the AMG body styling either.

Coincidentally, I saw a ML320 with an ///AMG badge this morning while going into work. And last week, while driving back from Florida, saw a CLK430 also with an ///AMG badge on I95 around the Baltimore Washington area.

Posers all. [xx(]

Question: Would it be an SLK 200 ///AMG or a SLK 20 ///AMG

Did AMG ever work with that small of an engine to start with?

Never, infact AMG starts for R170 from 3,2 engine like yours, but in Europe are sold as aerodinamic kit front /rear bumper and sideskirts made and marked by AMG and sold by MB with other particulars as you known like wheels , gear knobs, shock adsorbers , door sills ,double or single exhaust pipe ,seats,etc.

Ya know that black "primer" SL55....Did you ever see the radar wave adsorbable paint...such as applied to the stealth bombers....it too looks like "primer" but does cost big bucks..and yah, with the right connections you too can purchase some...sure seems to work too..just ask Sadamm [:0]

I don't think Sadam got the good stuff. I heard he painted his "spider hole" with it before he crawled into it.

I saw a new R171 200 marked with the AMG badge (and the SLK 200 badge removed).

Would have parked next to it if I could have, but... couldnt [:(]

My Quad exhaust would have caused the guy to flip however had he seen it [;)]
