The SLK Roadster is a masterpiece of high quality Mercedes-Benz technology pushing the boundaries of motoring excellence. Said by some to be the world's most beautiful car. A compact roadster with a retractable roof, the Mercedes-Benz SLK is a refreshingly stylish car that is capable of driving smoothly at high speeds.
The exterior of the SLK, in the Mercedes-Benz fashion, exudes confidence. The dominant feature is the upright radiator grille that bears the three-point star proudly, and the well-proportioned bonnet is smooth and refined, giving a sporty look that foreshadows the car's enviable agility.
The in-car experience is enhanced by a pioneering Magic Sky Control system, which lets the glass roof switch from light to dark at the flick of a switch so you can enjoy natural light whilst staying warm, or shade yourself from overbearing sunlight.
In spite of its sporty, stripped-down character the Mercedes-Benz SLK boasts a list of luxury options, from top quality, plush leather-trimmed upholstery and heated front seats to Solar Red ambient interior lighting. Even on standard SLK models, you can enjoy the convenience of electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, the multi-function sports steering wheel, and an automatic Climate Control system that allows you to regulate the temperature of your car.
Steel suspension ensures that the SLK has superb handling, which can be upgraded with the Dynamic Handling package to provide even more support. Direct Steering and Torque Vectoring Brakes make winding roads simple and reduce the amount of effort required to park effectively, while reinforced pillars prevent the car from rolling.
In order to maximise your driving enjoyment, the Mercedes-Benz SLK has a selection of engines that throb with power whilst still being energy-conscious. The SLK 350 uses a 3.5-litre V6 engine to provide 306bhp, while the 5.5-litre V8 in the SLK 55 generates an astounding 421bhp. With fuel efficiency to rival any vehicle in its class this is an economical automobile (a combined MPG of 43.5 is attainable in the SLK200 Blue EFFICIENCY unit with automatic transmission), but one with the potential to burst forward with awesome pace.
The SLK is an eye-catching convertible with a sporty style that burns with charisma. If you would like to find out more about the Mercedes-Benz SLK book a test drive at your nearest showroom.
