Here we have a very desirable 24th December 2004 registered SLK 55 AMG, finished in Telurium Silver (762U) with contrasting leather/nappa/semi-aniline Black/Anthracite (851A) interior.
List price in 2004 was in excess of £50k, with our super example only having covered just under 26000 miles, you can drive away safe in the knowledge that you have grabbed a bargain! In 2007 this vehicle was exported to France, coming back to England in 2016 with 20000 on the odometer.
It may be badged 55 but it actually uses a normally aspirated 5.4-litre engine with 360bhp. However, thanks to the light weight of the roadster, it has superb acceleration and pace, making it great fun to drive.
The automatic 7 speed gearbox works as it should, quiet and very smooth.
The extra AMG body kit and larger wheels suit the SLK shape well and it also has some exquisite detailing inside, while build quality is second to none. It's expensive to run, but as the ultimate SLK, it's a superb convertible
The vehicle is equipped with front and side (head and thorax) airbags, traction control and electronic stability control
The AMG sports seats are electrically adjustable and the steering column adjusts electrically for reach and height, so it's easy to get a good driving position. The instrument dials are clear and easy to read while the controls for the roof are located in front of the handbrake.
Visibility is pretty good with the roof up, bearing in mind you sit quite low.
The cabin is very spacious for a sports convertible and thanks to excellent refinement and the metal folding roof, it's a convertible that can be driven all year round. Air conditioning with electrically adjustable seats and an electric steering column.
The seats are heated and it was fitted with the desirable Airscarf feature from the options list - a vent below the head restraint blows warm air around your neck, allowing owners to take advantage of roof-down motoring all through the year. There is hardly any buffeting with the roof down up to about 60mph and a fabric wind deflector comes as standard.
Showing 6 former keepers on the V5C, low ownership for a vehicle purchased mainly as a weekend ‘toy’.
