2005 Mercedes SLK 350
Reg. no. KS54 VRR
Chassis no. WDB1714562F051921
Engine no. 2729633002970S
The second generation of Mercedes’ retractable hardtop sports car, the SLK, was launched for 2004, and the distinctive front-end styling was a tribute to the Formula 1 cars of that era. The new car was longer and wider than the old model, and made use of stiffer steel, giving a 46% increase in torsional rigidity with the roof down – the handling was therefore considerably improved. In addition, the SLK’s most important feature – the retractable hardtop – was improved, now taking just 22 seconds to raise or lower itself. New engines were offered as well, including the 3.5 litre V6 found in this example. For 2005, this engine produced 268bhp, enough for a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
This example is a rare 6-speed manual car; most SLK350s were fitted with a seven-speed automatic gearbox. A well-looked-after example with two previous owners, it is still in very good all-round condition and was serviced by Mercedes-Benz of Salisbury at 62,000 miles. Recently fitted with four new Continental tyres, it come with an MOT until December 2020, plus some bills and a V5c.
