Mercedes-Benz and Ducati joined forces a little over a year ago, and the two brands have chosen the Bologna Motor Show to mark the anniversary. The companies are showing off an SLK 55 AMG and a Streetfighter 848, respectively. Both machines are painted in eye-melting Streetfighter Yellow, and Mercedes-Benz says that AMG may permanently add the color to the personal option list if there's enough demand. The SLK 55 AMG also wears custom yellow contrasting stitching on interior pieces like the sport steering wheel, seats, and dashboard, and a set of yellow-illuminated door sill plates further reinforces the theme.

Neither the SLK 55 AMG nor the Streetfighter 848 boast any performance modifications, which is just fine, since both vehicles offer plenty of giddyup right out of the box. The Benz is the most powerful SLK manufactured to date, with 422 horsepower from a naturally-aspirated 5.5-liter V8. The Streetfighter 848, meanwhile, is a 132-horsepower machine that weighs less than 500 pounds.

Sexy car, sexy bike...not digging the color.

And 422 N/A 5.5L? That's a beast considering a 4.2L with a blower is less than 400. Put a blower on that thing and she'll purr at over 500 I'm sure!
I care...I'll slap you for your insubordination!
Don't quote articles to me ho. I know them well. You know what I do...
BTW Assault isn't article 92...

Unless you're speaking about your insubordination...that'd be 92

AAAAAANNNDDD back to the thread...

Bike is nice yes. Still trying to figure out what bike I want. Thinkin GSXR 750.
134 is a very very....very long article. It has like 30 different subtitles under it. Either way, it's not dumb. Why would you say it's dumb?

And lets please get back on track. Kkthxbai
I want something fast and reliable...what of those two doesn't the GSXR meet? It's either that or a HD Nightster
