The new Mercedes Benz SLK-Class Roadster was launched in the UK in the summer of 2004 replacing the successful first-generation model which enjoyed sales of over 308,000.

The new SLK serves as a symbol for the new, dynamic brand image of Mercedes Benz. and is even more alluring, more powerful and sportier than ever.

Four models are available the 4-cylinder 200 KOMPRESSOR, 280 V6, 350 V6 and the range topping V8 SLK 55 AMG delivering 360 bhp. Transmissions range from the 6-speed manual standard on the 200 KOMPRESSOR, 280 and 350 (5-speed automatic transmission available as a £1,450 option on the 200 KOMPRESSOR). 7G-Tronic the worlds first 7-speed automatic transmission for passenger cars is available as a £1,770 option on the 280 and 350 models and is standard on the SLK 55 AMG.
