Used Mercedes SLK
Sporty roadsters seem to grow on trees these days, but the Mercedes SLK is a world apart. It’s an all powerful ruler of an overcrowded motoring niche and delivers amazing performance combined with awesome designs. There’s no better choice if you want to have fun and look the part at the same time!
The SLK has been ripping up the road since 1996 and has become one of the most popular two seater sports cars in that time. Numerous generations have followed and each one showcases the latest technology and motoring prowess of the famous German brand.
One of the toughest choices you’ll face is whether to get the coupe or cabriolet. While the former is altogether sharper and more poised, the latter allows you to have the wind in your hair, which is what this type of car is all about. The exterior and interior of the SLK are both something special to behold; the sleek bodywork is teamed with an uncomplicated but supremely finished cockpit that’s enough to get anyone excited.
You don’t buy a small roadster and expect it to be hugely practical, but having said that there’s a fair amount of boot space. The main attraction is the performance, and there’s certainly no lack of it thanks to several different engine options. From the comparatively frugal entry level 1.8 litre to the almighty 5.5 litre V8 on the SLK55 AMG, there’s really something for everyone.
To drive the Merc is smooth and perfectly balanced. It’s a motorway marauder and a country road conqueror, and the ride quality is second to none. You really do feel in control and the steering is super sensitive which means you can feel every little piece of the road. With an automatic or manual gearbox, there’s choice for the wannabe racers and people who simply want to sit back and relax.
The SLK is epic in every respect of the word; you only need to start it up to realise this simple fact.
There’s no shortage of second hand Mercedes SLK cars here at Motors.co.uk and you only need to spend a few minutes browsing the vast array of used cars for sale in order to find the right one. The great thing is that you’ll pay significantly less as a result of hefty price reductions, and that means you can enjoy all the delights of Mercedes motoring with none of the drawbacks.
