At the peak of the 90's roadster movement, Mercedes-Benz made a strong statement with the first generation SLK. By comparison to the SL (R129 at the time), the SLK was nimble, light on its feet, and loved living high in the revs. The throaty M112 sounded great at peak power and encouraged more throttle the harder the SLK was pushed through corners. As we've seen with this seller previously, it's rare and refreshing to find an R170 as nicely kept as this one but moreover it's good to see a dealer repeatedly present clean, well-sorted examples. Surely this well-loved roadster will end up providing years of drop-top delight for its next enthusiast owner.
