A Closer Look
The SLK has been shaped by a rich racing heritage and the wind it harnesses so brilliantly. Wrapping purebred performance in perfectly proportioned muscle, its iconic crossblade grille and signature power hardtop openly express its passion for the open road. And unlike many retractable-hardtop sports cars, it’s equally appealing with its top up or down, with a sleek profile and well-concealed body seams.
Each of the SLK’s deeply bolstered sport seats combines enduring comfort on the open road with enthusiastic support in corners. Hand-fitted leather is standard on the SLK 350 and optional on the SLK 300. Smooth and supple Nappa leather outfits the SLK 55, and is an enticing upgrade to the SLK 350. Also available are heated seats and a memory feature for their power adjustment.
Three advanced powerplants employ Direct Injection, rapid-multispark ignition and a low-friction design to turn less fuel into more torque with fewer emissions. A new 241-hp turbo-4 powers the SLK 300 through a segment-leading, paddle-shifted 9-speed automatic transmission. The smooth 302-hp V-6 teams with a 7-speed automatic in the SLK 350. And the SLK 55’s AMG V-8 outputs 415 handcrafted horsepower via a paddle-shifted AMG SPEEDSHIFT® 7-speed.
Designed from the road to the sky as a convertible, the SLK offers high levels of strength, rigidity and impact management without excessive weight. Advanced materials are widely used throughout the body, including high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel for critical reinforcements, magnesium for the hardtop frame, and aluminum for the front fenders and the hood.
Built and signed by its own master engine builder, the heart of an SLK55 AMG roadster is its handcrafted V-8 engine. It joins forces with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT® 7-speed and a track-developed chassis. You can feel the racing pedigree of the SLK55 in every rev, every move, and every snarl unleashed by its four polished tailpipes.
