A fun-to-drive roadster that combines the safety and security of a hardtop, the wind-in-your-hair fun of a convertible and the European-brand cachet of a Mercedes all in one attractively styled package.

This is an exceptional car in every respect. In my opinion it's a future classic (only c.4,300made most in US) & has better looks than the latest SLK AMG's and it's rarer & faster. It's a pleasure to drive around town so much so that even my mum could drive it without knowing what it's capable of. It's a wolf in sheep's clothing and will decimate most challengers. When you want power it launches you as if you're strapped to a rocket and that power still keeps coming until your nerve or the road runs out.

Car accelerates like crazy and is fun

nice exhaust sounds. Wish the car had
a few more features or amenities. Not
built for comfort or gadgets. Main
problems - dealer would never
completely fix brake squeak. Blinker
light housing fell out of socket
twice. Ride is cramped and visibility
is marginal. Great engine offset by
poor dealer service. On the one hand

expect great service and some more
features for 56K? One last thing - car
handles very poorly in the rain, even
below 60 mph. I had a CLK with Z-rated
Michelins that performed better than
To stoke interest in this aging drop top, Mercedes brings out a Special Edition that includes unique 17-inch wheels, napa leather trim for the sport seats and roll bar, chrome accents around the windows and a color-keyed front grille and rear spoiler.
