DONT BUY THIS CAR!

  • If you are a hoon.

  • If you are a collector who hides your gems in your garage.
The SLK-55 is a DRIVABLE COLLECTIBLE SPORTS CAR!

  • If you are an introvert who doesn't want to be approached by people all the time to talk about your car.

  • If you are NOT an investor.
This up-and-coming collectible will likely join the ranks of the 1955 300SL and the 1970 280SL Pagoda Roadster.
On the rare occasions when one comes on the market the price its always more expensive than the last.

  • If feeling like a race car driver is not your thing.

  • If you dont enjoy the roar of a naturally aspirated 5.5 l V 8 hand-built and signed engine cold start in the morning.

  • If you are NOT extremely picky.
THIS SLK-55 IS THE ONLY ONE FOR SALE IN THE COUNTRY!


WHY DID I BUY THIS CAR?

I once had a LJ GTR Torona, which gave me the same sensation as the SLK-55.
Except that it was actively trying to kill me.

In comparison, the SLK 55 stops when you want to stop, corners when you want to corner and... F*CKING FLIES.

Its sheer motoring joy. *_*

Its got all the things that the Torona didnt:

- Active traction control.
- Airbags.
- Vented disc brakes.
- Reliability.

And then the price!
Put in this way:

Torana will give you:

  • The thrills.
  • The collectability.

For $100k +.

Mercedes will give you:

  • The thrills.
  • The collectability.
  • THE DRIVABILITY.
  • THE SAFETY.

For $95k.


REVIEWED BY JEREMY CLARKSON ON TOP GEAR.
After this review, he went out and bought one!

If you squint a bit, the SLK looks like the giant-killing McLaren Mercedes SLR.
And if you go for the 55 AMG, it goes like the SLR too. Sort of.
Its 5.5 liter engine might lack the supercharger that makes other AMG-tuned cars shred tarmac, but the SLK 55 is light so it doesnt need the boost.
It sounds like an American muscle car, goes like a rocket and handles well in a brutish way.
It also comes with a retractable hard top, making it probably the most complete sports car available. Which is why I bought one.
