Mercedes SLK 55 AMG & Ducati Streetfighter 848

Not content with being icons on their own, Mercedes-Benz and Ducati have teamed up to don matching colors on each of their wonder machines. It’s kinda like when you see a boyfriend and girlfriend wearing matching outfits, only not nearly as repulsive. The Mercedes SLK 55 AMG and Ducati Streetfighter 848 have both been generously dipped in “streetfighter yellow”, and the folks at Mercedes say that color option may even become a permanent fixture if enough people are digging it. The Benz delivers 422-horsepower from a naturally-aspirated 5.5-liter V8, while the Streetfighter 848 sizzles through city streets with 132-horsepower on a bike that weighs less than Kirstie Alley; who by the way, could also stand to use a coat or seven of streetfighter yellow. I mean, it can’t hurt, right?
