Low mileage, 2-owner 2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Designo Copper Edition. Finished in eye-catching Designo Copper Pearl (020U), this SLK230 is one of the finest R170 SLKs on the road today. It has known only two drivers, been garage kept, has been a California car most it’s life and has only been driven a scant 34,800 miles in over 22 years. Original MSRP was $47,850 and it is equipped with over $6,000 in factory options.
Equipped with the Designo Copper Edition package, this SLK features a number of exclusive features over non-Designo models. The fantastic Copper Pearl paint is a finish exclusive to the Designo package, and the Designo interior features exclusive Charcoal / Copper full leather sport seats, steering wheel, dash and door panels. This SLK also features optional heated sport seats, standard carbon fiber-look trim, Bose premium audio, dual-zone auto climate control and auto-dimming rear-view mirrors. Additional equipment includes driver and passenger roll hoops in matching leather, headlight cleaners, “Kompressor” options and badging, a mesh wind deflector, and fog lights.
Work during 2021 include: upgraded Mercedes 17” wheels and tires (original wheels go with the sale), replaced front black grill, replaced rear-view mirror, new Bluetooth period correct radio (original MB radio goes with the sale), top hydraulic pump and actuators rebuilt by Top Hydraulics in Oregon, interior console crack repairs, seat leather restored, and re-stained, new second key obtained plus regular oil changes and service as shown on the invoices.
The body features a power-retractable hardtop with a heated glass window that offers the choice between a traditional fixed-roof coupe or a drop-top roadster at the flip of a switch.
Powering this SLK is a supercharged 2.3L I4 engine that develops 190hp/200lb-ft and is backed by an optional 5-speed automatic transmission. Weighing in at less than 3,000lbs, the supercharged engine provides more than ample get-up-and-go. The car rolls on upgraded Mercedes 5-spoke AMG 17" wheels with new front 225/45 R17 and rear 245/40 R17 tires.
There were only 31 of the Designo Copper Edition models imported to the U.S. and it was available only in 2000. This one is in the best condition of any SLK you're likely to find. This car is all about “fun”, and with great options and the superior condition, you've got one of the most desirable R170 SLK230s available.
Manufacturer’s literature, maintenance records and receipts plus two keys are included in the sale. The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage, and the car has a clean Idaho title.
