The Mercedes-Benz R170 SLK was conceived as a modern equivalent of the original 190SL roadster of the 1950s, with which it shared a 94 inch wheelbase. This was also the car that introduced the world to the wonders of the mass produced vario folding roof, a genius piece of design that allows this car to switch between tin top and no top at the flick of a switch.
The name SLK was derived from sportleicht (sporty), leicht (light), and kurz (short). It was the first Mercedes-Benz to wear an SL in the nameplate and carry a four cylinder engine since the 190SL.
Now becoming sought after as a usable modern classic, the R170 SLK is finding it’s feet in the classic car world.
With it’s V6 engine and throaty soundtrack, the SLK320 is the more serious big brother of the fun four cylinder SLK230 Kompressor.
The 3.2 litre SLK320 offers more grunt thanks to it’s naturally aspirated 6 cylinder M111 power plant; with 215bhp compared to around 190bhp of the four supercharged SLK230.
These 6 cylinder SLKs make superb tourers, offering coupe levels of comfort with ample boot space.
This example boasts the rare and desirable Quartz & Siam Beige Leather, a delightful two-tone interior that has aged beautifully. The R170 SLK was available in a wide range of colour and trim finishes, some of which no longer look appealing – not so with this one, this car looks as good today as it did when it was fresh in the showroom almost 20 years ago.
Luxuries such as electrically adjustable heated seats, 10 cd changer, dual zone climate control and the smooth 5 speed automatic gear box make covering great distances a pleasure.
The history record shows services at 12,261 / 14,661 / 31,214 / 42,460 / 43,376 / 43,591 / 46,941 (SLSHOP stamp dated 2018) and most recently at 49,224 in late 2019.
Presenting a superb opportunity to get into a smartly presented early style SLK with V6 power, this is one very usable and highly enjoyable modern classic.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
