Mercedes-AMG and Ducati will make a joint appearance at the Bologna Auto Show (December 3-11, 2011) with the new SLK 55 AMG and new Ducati Streetfighter 848. Both will be finished in "Streetfighter yellow" to underscore the cooperation that began one year ago.

Inspired by the Ducati Streetfighter 848, the "Streetfighter yellow" paint on the SLK 55 AMG ensures an exciting appearance. If there is sufficient demand, we’re told the special color could be made available as an individual optional extra from the AMG Performance Studio in the future.

Furthermore, the interior features contrasting yellow stitching against the black nappa leather upholstery on the door panels, beltlines, armrests, leather-covered roll-over bars, dashboard, shift boot and steering wheel. Yellow illuminated AMG door sills round off the changes.
