The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Roadsters have long captured the hearts of sports car enthusiasts. The SLK models of 2008 are even more dynamic and now offer an even more emotionally charged driving experience. Key visual enhancements include new-look front and rear sections as well as a meticulously modified interior with a new instrument cluster and three-spoke sports steering wheel.
Why This Car Is Special
The compact 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK280 Roadster like we have at Skyway Classics, have come to symbolize Mercedes-Benz' dynamic brand image. The 2008 further emphasises the car's sporty character and continue the SLK-Class success story by introducing new, dynamic, powerful elements. The new-generation SLK displays new sporty highlights, further enhancing the appeal of the successful two-seater with the trendsetting Vario-Roof that transforms the car from a roadster into a weatherproof coupé in a matter of seconds.
Further aspects which add to the emotionally charged appeal of the new engine include deliberately powerful sports-engine acoustics with a strikingly emotive sound design when decelerating. In combination with the automatic transmission, the engine management system also blips the throttle automatically during downshifts.
Our 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK280 is powered by a 3.0-liter V-6 engine that pumps out 228 horse and comes with the automatic transmission. The EPA rates the car at 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway with the automatic.
Our SLK rides on 12-spoke factory MB wheels and performance tires as well as producing an extremely sporty sound, this throttle-blipping function reduces load alteration effects.
Many of the interior details have also been redesigned and upgraded following a careful process of material selection. Particular importance was attached to optimising the interior so as to make it even more driver-oriented. Centrepieces include a new three-spoke sports steering wheel with multifunction buttons and a new instrument cluster with dial surrounds.
Our Mercedes-Benz has the new NTG 2.5 audio and telematics generation. It is easy to operate and offers an even wider range of useful functions. Standard features integrated in every radio include a hands-free system with Bluetooth technology and a new media interface in the glove compartment, allowing the full integration of mobile audio devices such as an iPod, which can then be operated via the audio system's user interface.
The great grey leather bucket seats with grey door panels and trim is complimented by the darker grey carpeting, black roll bars, and extensive standard-equipment package, including head/thorax sidebags, adaptive front airbags and two-stage belt-force limiters.
The designers have given many eye-catching features like the new-look front bumper with a modified air-dam arrangement and a more pronounced arrow shape, the rear end has a diffuser-style lower section that makes the Roadster appear more powerful when viewed from behind, an effect that is enhanced considerably by the trapezoidal exhaust tailpipes and the AMG-inspired darkened tail lights.
The vario-roof that transforms the roadster into a coupe in 22 seconds, not to mention the roadster also comes with the option of the unique AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, which allows open-top driving pleasure all year round, even in winter.
