The Mercedes-Benz SLK350 is often derided as being a car for secretaries, but hey, even if that's true (and we're not saying it is), secretaries can still have fun behind the wheel. And with this new SLK, they should. To find out how much, we brought the SLK350 to the Edmunds.com test track. Acceleration was tested with 0-60 and quarter-mile tests, while braking was calculated using 60-0. Handling tests included a timed slalom and two trips around a skid pad to generate a lateral acceleration calculation.
