Rush! Like no other.

2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class SLK350 2dr Roadster (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Awesome ride. I took the car on a 900 mile trip (Avg. 25.6 mpg on highway w/ avg. speed of 68mph allowing for pit stops) and was concerned before I left it might be uncomfortable for that long a ride, but at 6'2" I felt totally at ease. It has the horsepower to get out of the way and handling you would expect from a roadster. Top speed electronically limited to 155mph.

Best Features

I ordered this from Stuttgart, Germany because I wanted all the bells & whistles. Mercede-Benz sell a special SLK luggage bag which fits perfectly in the trunk, top down. The navigation system is very nice. The upgrade stereo system is fantastic. But the best feature is the retractable hardtop.

Worst Features

Even though you know when you buy it, it lacks space with the 6 CD changer in the glove box. It will fit a set of golf clubs but the driver has to be set diagonally.
