2. Model History

The First Generation Mercedes Benz SLK Or The R170 Was First Showcased To The World At The Turin Motor Show On The 22nd Of April 1996, With This Stunning New Addition To The Company's Line Up, To Be An Ultra New Design From Bruno Sacco And Was Viewed As Being A Modern Incarnation Of The Glorious 1950`s Mercedes Benz 190 SL. This Sleek New Model Offered Everything From World Class Mercedes Benz Build Quality, Up To Date Driving Technology, A Selection Of Engines To Please Every Driver And Of Course The Electric Solid Folding Convertible Roof, Which Could Be Fully And Easily Controlled By The Touch Of A Switch, All Of Which Gave Us A More Refined Driving Experience, Which Worried The Likes Of Porsche With Their Boxster Model. Mercedes Benz Had Successfully Achieved The Ultimate Driving Statement, To Which There Was Healthy Interest Within Every Global Mercedes Benz Dealer, Was Adored By The Motoring Press And If We Fast Forward To 2017, Every Aspect Of The Cars Design Has Defiantly Stood The Test Of Time And Still Offers A Truly Beautiful, Usable And Exciting Vehicle. As Part Of The Model Line Up, Came The SLK 230 Kompressor Convertible, With This Mid Ranged Version Having A Two Point Three Litre, Four Cylinder Super Charged Petrol Engine Which Produced A Wonderful 197 Brake Horse Power, Which Would Mean That The Driver & Passenger Could Accelerate From 0-62 MPH In Just 7.2 Seconds And Would Keep Going Until It Hit The Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 145 MPH And All This Was Available With Or Without The Solid Convertible Roof In Place.

This Incredible Mileage Reading May Well Be Down To The Car Being Sorn For Many Years, With The Past Keepers Taking Immense Amount Of Care To How And Where It Was Dry Stored For So Many Years And This Today Is Evident To The Total Current Presentation, As All Elements To Include The Body Work, Inner Arches, Body Panel Fit, Leather Seating, Carpets, An Original And Undamaged Under Belly And Further Internal Trim Parts Are In Stunning Original Condition, Which In The World Of The Older Mercedes Benz Collectable Classic Cars, Is Defiantly Rare To Now Find.
