FOR SALE: A striking Mercedes SLK in as new condition, with only 7k miles. *SIMILAR QUALITY CARS ALWAYS REQUIRED* EQUIPMENT Electric windows, cruise control, leather steering wheel and gear selector, driver, passenger and side door airbags. Fully functioning electric folding metal roof with sound proofed headlining. Electric door mirrors. Tinted windows, quality SLK floor mats. Tracker. EXTERIOR Striking in Yellow Stone bodywork all the panels appear in good order with no evidence of rust or corrosion to found anywhere on the car. Panel gaps are as they should be and the glass and lenses are without fault, unsurprising with the minimal mileage covered. All rubbers and seals are again faultless and the matt black, pierced front grill clean and unmarked contrasting the bright yellow stone paintwork perfectly. Minor details such as the chrome badges and decals remain bright and unmarked. INTERIOR Having covered so few miles the interior is, as to be expected and virtually unmarked. The Anthracite seats are in perfect condition as are headlining, door cards and floor mats. The dash and centre console still retain a lovely deep texture and feel. The Leather steering wheel and gear selector are pristine while all switches and controls are again spotless and operate as they should. The carbon weave effect inserts laced throughout the dash, doors and centre console are unmarked and add the sports car feel to the interior. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The spirited Roots Eaton Supercharged 2.3 litre engine provides surprising performance when required, accelerating quickly and smoothly from any speed. Having been well maintained and with such low mileage, engine wear is not an issue. The engine bay still appears clean, dry and with no leaks to be seen. Gear changes through the 5 speed auto box are smooth and precise, pulling through the range with ease. The SLK is equipped with the handy cruise control option that still operates exactly as it should. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES All the AMG, five spoke alloys remain unmarked and fitted with a locking wheel nut, Mercedes Benz logo and a carbon weave centre cap. The wheels are shod with the correct Continental 225/45R17 Conti Sport tyres all of which retain 6mm plus tread depth and appear as new. Equipped with ventilated discs at the front, braking performance is strong, pulling Mercedes-Benz to a stop sharply in a straight line. Traction control is fitted plus a brake control system which ensures maximum braking efficiency during an emergency scenario. HISTORY FILE The SLK was first registered on the 29th May 1997 and supplied by Arlington Mercedes of Bedford to the one lady owner's husband. The original invoice for in excess of £30,000 is still present in the history file. The car has always been used sparingly, very much for high days and holidays as the genuine low mileage would confirm. In the service booklet there is a full main dealer Mercedes history to be found, the last service was carried out in July 2013. A recent VOSA MOT history print out can further help to verify the current low mileage. The document holder is also present with all the handbooks and manuals plus two spare keys.
