1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK 230

Muscular, poised, predatory and competitive, those are the words used to describe the Mercedes-Benz SLK.  Mercedes-Benz designers and engineers continue to remain the world leaders in creating a peerless and beautiful vehicle.

For 1999, Mercedes Benz chose to unveil something different; a 2-passenger sports car with a supercharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine. Rather than a soft top though, the SLK featured a metal roof that powers down at the touch of a button into the trunk for stowage. Taking only 25 seconds, the trunk lid opened forward for cargo, and tilted from the rear to raise or lower the top.

SLK stands for sporty, light, and compact in German. The design work behind the SLK stemmed from the compact C-Class sedan. The presence of the supercharged engine was marked with a 'Kompressor' badge on the front fenders. This Mercedes SLK  offers a 5-speed manual transmission, for real sports car driving. Traction control, door-mounted side airbags and antilock brakes were standard features.  (For 1997 the SLK was on Car and Driver's Ten Best list.)


This Mercedes Benz SLK230 is special; due to the fact that is a gorgeous hard top convertible with the rare manual 5 speed transmission. It has been extremely well kept and would make the future owner very happy!  

It comes with:

CD Changer

Leather Seats

Power Windows

Keyless Entry

Power Convertible Hardtop

And Much More

            This beautiful 1997 Mercedes Benz SLK230 Kompressor, has only 87,540 original miles. This beautiful hardtop convertible had been a Florida car since 2004, then it was kept in our Michigan garage, and never driven in the winter. This means it has been a rust free car it’s whole life. This Mercedes Benz had an original MSRP of $42,195 and is highly optioned. It is shown in Brilliant Red Metallic paint on black leather seats. The previous owner took meticulous care of this Mercedes Benz and it is currently in outstanding mechanical condition. My wife purchased this car for her summer "fun" car and was never driven in the winter. The car has been dependable and a lot of fun, but she has now purchased another summer "fun" car and we don't feel we can spend adequate quality time with the car now.  And as a true sports car it has the 5 speed manual transmission, so you can really drive the car!  If you are planning on traveling from far away to come see us, this vehicle would be perfectly safe to make a long ride home!

Comes with Owner’s Manual and Both Keys.

Because it is a used car, is does show some signs of wear, commensurate with age and mileage.  It has a few scratches on the glove box door and a few minor scratches in the paint.  Please feel free to give me a call with any specific questions.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class interior caught in spy shots

Tue, 29 Jan 2013 15:31:00 EST

With the redesigned 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class getting closer to production, the camera-wielding crew over at Autospies somehow managed to get inside of the car to snap some detailed spy shots. As the prototypes continue to shed camouflage, it would appear that Mercedes-Benz is getting closer to unveiling the car, and with the Geneva and New York auto shows coming up, it could be sooner rather than later.
From what we can see of this car's interior, the overall look of the S-Class' cabin isn't a ground-breaking departure from the current car, but it has been completely redesigned with more advanced technology. The styling is now even more upscale with larger swaths of wood, more shapely door panels (without the built-in armrest cubbies) and the concept-like two-spoke steering wheel. The highlight of this car though is probably the two massive digital screens with one being used for driver information and the other used for navigation, audio and infotainment systems. One other detail we noticed about this car is that it was equipped with the new 360-degree camera that debuted on the new GL-Class and will also be used on the 2014 E-Class. We also know that the next-gen S-Class will be getting the new cloud-based MBrace2 infotainment system.
As for the exterior design, it looks like the next S-Class will carry a similar profile as the current car, but we can see through the camouflage that the new styling will fit in better with current Mercedes-Benz products. Up front, the grille is much larger is flanked by aggressive LED-trimmed headlights, while the rear view of the car shows us the LED brake light now at the top of the rear window, a more pointed trunk opening and a more squared-off rear fascia with exhaust outlets pushed to the corners.

Mercedes-AMG teases GT interior, announces fall 2014 debut

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 21:00:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz opted to tease the assembled media at its post-New York Auto Show party, showing off a pair of images of the exquisitely crafted interior of the highly anticipated successor of the SLS AMG - the V8-powered Mercedes-AMG GT.
Slated for a debut in the fall at either Paris or Los Angeles (we're betting Paris), you'll note straight away that there's something wrong with this car's name. Where's the "Benz?" Well, it's been ditched to, as Mercedes says, "make the dream of the authentic Mercedes-AMG sports car come true." Sorry Karl.
"The new Mercedes-AMG GT proves that we will be positioning AMG as a dynamic sports car brand even more strongly and aggressively than before," said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG.

Mercedes working on new inline-six engines

Mon, 11 Nov 2013 18:29:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz will make a return to the inline-six-cylinder engine game, according to a report from the UK's AutoCar. It's not clear what's prompting the phasing out of the current array of V6s.
We'll see the first inline-six from Mercedes in next-generation E-Class, set to debut in 2016. Following that, it'll arrive as part of a mid-cycle refresh for the C-Class in 2017. What's particularly special about the new inline-six is its modular nature, which will allow Mercedes to eventually spinoff three- and four-cylinder options, with the three-pot arriving alongside the new inline-six.
In other news, AutoCar uncovered some details on the next C-Class AMG, which will ditch its excellent 6.2-liter, AMG V8 in favor of a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, although we've already told you about that. What we didn't know at the time, though, was that the 4.0-liter would be paired first with a new, seven-speed AMG Speedshift transmission and offer all-wheel drive. AC also reports that a nine-speed Speedshift is in the works.
