For Sale: 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 represents the final year of the first generation (it's a Special Edition badged for the Final Edition.) And that means you get the best of the evolution in a car that gave us a folding hardtop Benz - even before the ultra-premium SL. So to find a low-mileage example of these nimble driver's cars that remains so well preserved and loaded is a true treat.

There's a reason why this color is called Brilliant Silver. It looks great on these Mercedes cars - almost like it's bathed in chrome. Of course, why it really looks this great is the factory paint has been babied. It's a car that has averaged less than 3k miles annually, and so the full package continues to have the fit and finish of a premium car that only saw occasional use. We love the SLK because Mercedes gave you a sports car that didn't have any compromises. It's a sleek roadster, and the electronic folding hardtop was so well engineered that the design makes for an outstandingly attractive coupe. And it's this same everyday appeal that's why it's impressive to find an SLK from this era that has not seen a lot of use. So while you will want to get out and drive this one, there's also an argument for continuing the full preservation. It's such a clever car that a first-generation SLK will arguably reach the same timeless classic status as the original Mustang.

This is a personal sports car, and you're reminded of that inside by the supple leather seating for only two. Your seat power adjusts to the ideal driving position, and the tilt/telescopic steering column and crisp sports car gauges really give this a terrific driver's car feel. Like any good Mercedes, this one comes loaded with features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo with CD changer. Plus, heated seats and cold-blowing air conditioning allow you to stay comfortable just about any time of year you want to take the top down. But more than just luxury, this car also has great modern safety features such as dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes.

The SLK230 really did come with the perfect motor. After all, the tradition of the small European roadster is a four-cylinder motor, but this required a power boost for modern times. That's why the 2.3-liter supercharged motor fits the profile perfectly. The 195 hp engine pulls nicely thanks to a well-sorted five-speed automatic transmission. The fully-independent suspension is quite sporty, but it never loses that Mercedes luxury feeling. Add in power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and this one has the right recipe for a well-mannered sports car. That's why the trunk can still hold your weekend bags even with the top down - Mercedes wanted to make this is the perfect backroads getaway vehicle.

This is premium and affordable fun that also comes poised to be a future classic (that's why you also get the original owner's manual.) You've loved the SLK since day one, and now is your opportunity to get a gem for less than the price of a used economy car. Call today!!!
