At start of the 1990s, after the introduction of their two-seat,
grand-tourer R129 SL and the Mazda MX-5, Mercedes-Benz set out to
create a new compact roadster, slotted below the SL. By late 1991,
under Bruno Sacco, the first design sketches were drawn and scale
models being built in the first half of 1992. Massively successful
in its first year, worldwide sales hit 55,000, over double the
entire nine-year production of 190 SLs and between 1996 and 2004,
over 311,000 SLKs were sold. The roof design consists of a folding
steel hardtop with both halves linked by a mechanism which is
locked securely when the roof is closed. At the touch of a button
on the centre console, a hydraulic system controls the fully
automatic folding process in which the boot lid is also integrated.
The R172 SLK 250 CDI model was introduced in 2012 and features a
2143cc diesel engine and offers 201bhp.

This unmarked example was supplied on 1st September
2013 to the current vendor and registered keeper. It is fitted with
a panoramic vario-roof, parktronic and heated seats. The Diamond
White coachwork is excellent as is the black leather interior which
is complemented by red stitching. Having covered a mere 16,714
miles from new and last serviced on 12th September 2016,
this Mercedes-Benz offers a significant saving on the original cost
of £41,185.

The car is supplied with a V5C registration document, a current
MoT test certificate valid until 31st August 2017
together with the original service books and literature
