Elegant Mercedes SLK 200
An elegant Mercedes SLK 200 Roadster automatic R170
EQUIPMENT - Cruise control, heated seats (2 stage), SRS air bags (off switch), Internal central locking, external remote central locking, audio 10 CD changer/radio, winter and standard gearbox options, detachable wind-break, leather interior, fixed roll over bars, alloy wheels, dual climate control, electric mirrors, cabriolet and coupe options.
EXTERIOR - Finished in metallic brilliant silver (Merc code 744); these SLK’s are simply stunning head turning cars. Slight grazing on the front right bumper is evident and could need paint but could also be accepted. Two fixed roll-over bars behind the seats work with the A-pillars to form an integrated system offering a high degree of roll-over protection when the roof is down. The steel roof provides added protection, which is normally found in a coupe, but with the flexibility of a convertible at the same time. The vario-roof system is typical sublime German engineering…
INTERIOR – Two tone black and red leather livery is indicative of the period, but may not be to everyone’s taste. That said, it was incredibly popular with so many silver cars with this interior. As in most of these models, the centre console area does now show signs of leather lift with some spotting evident but not offensive. Despite the small nature of the car, the interior offers a surprisingly roomy feel with plenty of space. The leather is typical high end quality.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION – The SLK 200 – 2.0 L (1998 cc) produces 136 bhp (101 kW; 138 PS) and cruises effortlessly in automatic guise. The option of ‘standard’ or ‘winter’ settings offer the driver comfort with an option and, once warm, the gearbox offers seamless and quick change.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES - Original Mercedes chrome style alloy wheels are shod in 205 / 60 /R15 tyres with plenty of tread. The front left alloy does have a slight scuff mark with the other three intact.
HISTORY FILE – First registered on the 19th January 1999, the initial lady owner maintained the car with no less than 7 Mercedes service stamps until mid-way through 2010. A non-Benz service occurs in January 2011, but is recovered by a recent Mercedes service at the current mileage. Sparingly used in the recent years and averaging a mere 2250 km’s (1400 mls) per year, this example has had a pampered existence. A new battery brought the car immediately to life following several months in the garage. The lady was awake once again!
Superb German engineering for very little money.
