About This Car

2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK 230 Kompressor (R170)

Brilliant Silver Metallic (744) with Anthracite Leather (211)

57,000 miles

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 a supercharged 2.3 litre engine, these little roadsters are highly addictive to drive, engaging and rewarding on any road. With just over 190bhp on tap and coupe levels of comfort with the roof on, they really are versatile and fun little cars.

The ‘touch of a button’ roof makes them the ideal real-world classic, perfect to love and cherish but just as happy when enrolled on daily transport duties.

This high specification example boasts heated seats and air conditioning, along with an impressive level of equipment which is listed below. Other highlights include Electrically adjustable (heated) seats, headlamp wash & wipe, and a 10 cd changer.

Present with this car is the original manufacturers wallet pack with all original books and manuals. The service book shows service intervals of 7k, 17k, 24k, 34k, 43k, 47k, 51k, and 53k.

A great, low mileage little roadster, ready for summer enjoyment.

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?

Bulkhead Corrosion

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.
