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.

Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG officially teased in mini video

Mon, 15 Jul 2013 18:33:00 EST

The followup to the Mercedes-Benz S550, the S63 AMG, will sport a biturbocharged V8 that will likely turn out around 550 horsepower. The new engine is probably the 5.5-liter, biturbocharged V-8 that's been popping up in everything from the ML63 to the E63 AMG. The front fascia is more aggressive, which shouldn't come as a surprise, while a meaty exhaust setup can be found out back.
We managed to pick all that up from a short, 17-second video posted by MB. The original video that unveiled the S63 AMG has since been pulled down, making this YouTube clip the best look we now have at the new super sedan, at least until the Germans give up the goods for real.
Be sure to check out the video below, along with our original posting on the S63 AMG.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA priced from $31,300*

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 23:38:00 EST

Mercedes-Benz has kindly let loose the price of the 2015 GLA-Class, telling that the base 208-horsepower GLA250 in two-wheel drive will go for $31,300 *not including a destination charge of $925. That makes for $32,225 in total to get one off the lot, a price predicted as early as last year and in our recent First Drive. The other two available models can push power to all four wheels, and after the destination fee is applied the GLA240 4Matic (pictured) will be $34,225 while the 355-horsepower GLA45 AMG will change lives and wallets to the tune of $49,225.
On the base scale, that puts the GLA250 just a few hundred dollar bills above the more powerful, rear-wheel drive BMW X1 and a stack of hundreds below the less powerful, front-wheel drive Audi Q3. If you're keeping in-house score, the GLA250 comes in at $1,400 above its sedan platform-mate with the same engine, the CLA250. At the high end, however, the competition doesn't have anything that can touch the AMG trim. Not that it should matter all that much - Mercedes needed something to keep these buyers in the family, and now they have it. If any of them should need even more power and more money spent, then there's always that 394-hp Brabus flavor. We'll have more info and details on each trim when Mercedes unleashes the shebang in the not-too-distant future.
