True power within
The power of the engine is truly remarkable. When you drive the SLK 250 which utilises a 1.8 litre four cylinder engine, you’ll be amazed by the difference when comparing the SLK 350. The V6, which is the entry level vehicle is able to achieve an almighty 302 BHP. If that isn’t enough for you, there is a Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG which comes with a 5.5 litre V8 engine, able to produce an almighty 415 BHP.
A great drive
The seven speed transmission is mated perfectly to the powerful engine. The gear changes themselves are short and sweet, unleashing a great deal of torque. The drive is said to be quite comfortable with the steering being accurate and engaging.
Mercedes-Benz’s panoramic roof costs $500. If you are going to shell out for the car, $500 really is not much more to pay out. The Magic Sky Control, which change the lighting and mood of the car is also another fulfilling and worthwhile option.
The winter cold is able to be handled slightly better thanks to the in-built Airscarf, which is another option. This neatly blows hot air into the driver and passenger’s neck.
A wonderful car to own
You will struggle to find a more powerful and more fun to drive roadster in the American car market and throughout the world.
