The Mercedes SLK was launched in the UK in 1996 and was an immediate success for Mercedes being the first small car with a 'Vario Roof' which was a hardtop that folded back into the boot. The earlier cars, R170, were built up to 2004 before being replaced by the R171 which was replaced again in 2011 by the R172 series.
Originally the cars were offered with 2.0, 2.3 and 3.2 engines with a powerful AMG version being launched in 2001.
Our car is a 2002 Mercedes SLK32 AMG finished in Brilliant Silver metallic with duo tone red/anthracite heated sports seats. The car has had just 2 previous keepers and the mileage is just 46,695.
These SLK32 AMG's are special and fast and were expensive when new - 349BHP powered the car to 60mph in less than 4.5 seconds and top speed is in excess of 150mph, within the history file, a sales invoice is present for over £35,000 when the car was 6 months old!
Apparently, only 263RHD cars were produced so they are certainly fairly exclusive and already considered a young classic. This car is even rarer still due to the fact that it has the unusual options of factory fitted Sat Nav and BOSE speakers.
The condition of our car is beautiful both inside and out. The silver paintwork gleams in the sun and contrasts well with the two tone leather. On the road the car behaves impeccably as only well maintained, low mileage cars do – the performance is still blistering even by todays standards.
The history file of this car is comprehensive. The original leather document holder contains all instruction books and the maintenance book which still has the original data card in place. The service book is stamped up with 8 service entries and all 13 MOT certificates are present as is the original radio code and Sat Nav discs.
All in all this is a great car to own and enjoy. Look after it, keep the mileage sensible and it should prove to be a worthy member to any Mercedes enthusiast.
