Ever Since 1996 The German Manufacturer Has Offered Us This Sporty Two Seat Luxury Convertible, Which Was To Be Viewed As The Direct Competition To Both The Porsche Boxster Model & The BMW Z4 Convertible, With Many Seeing These Cars As Being Slightly More Refined Than The Other German Equivalents Available, Without Losing Any Of Those Open Top Motoring Thrills. The Third Generation R172 Version Was Formerly Introduced To The Worlds Motoring Press In The Middle Of 2011 And Was To Follow The Same High End Build Requirements That Had Been So Successful For The Last Fifteen Years Since Those First Production Cars. One Of The Key Aspects Why The Mercedes Benz SLK Had Done So Very Well For The German Manufacture Was The Electric Solid Convertible Roof, As When Closed Would Give The Car A Distinctive Coupe Feel, But With The Touch Of A Button The Roof Folds Away, With Some Considerable Theatre, Placed Under The Rear Boot Deck To Leave A Classy Cabriolet For The Driver And Passenger To Enjoy Those Sunny Motoring Adventures In. This New Offering Still Followed A Similar Design Recipe From The R170 Model, But Now Would Have A More Muscular Look To The Exterior, Which Was Warmly Welcomed By Both Ladies And Gents From All Corners Of The Globe And With The Unmistakable Luxurious Refinement That Had Made The Mercedes Brand A World Leader, These New Cars Would Keep The Spirit And Passion Of The Roadster Alive. Various Engine Choices Gave Every Client A Reason To Buy And Enjoy, With This Particular Example Being Opted With The Mighty Three Point Five Litre V6 Petrol Engine, Which Generates A More Than Healthy 305 BHP With 273 lb-ft Of Torque, Which Means Acceleration From 0-62 MPH Could Be Achieved In An Astonishing 5.6 Seconds And Could Further Glide To An Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 155 MPH, With All This Power Effortlessly Controlled With The Seven Speed Automatic Transmission. So With The Combination Of The Solid Roof And The Power Available On Tap, This Has To Be One Of The Best Two Seat Convertibles In Allowing You To Enjoy Every Season.
