2002 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Kompressor (R170)
Smart supercharged 2.3 SLK with innovative
folding metal roof; leather interior and automatic/tiptronic 'box showing just
74,755 miles. AMMENDMENT
Supplied new in June 2002 and finished in Brilliant Silver
with contrasting black leather and brushed aluminium trim. The car is fitted
with the powerful yet surprisingly economic 2.3 four cylinder engine with
supercharger giving it 197bhp resulting in a surprising turn of speed.
Our vendor has owned the car for past three years covering
just over 3,000 enjoyable miles giving it a total of 74,755. During his tenure,
he has spent some money on tyres, a new washer pump and jet along with ignition
coil and new rear brake pipes at significant cost. The near side rear window
regulator required replacement by our local MB Specialist Gerry Doverman of
Hereford in November 2018 at a cost of £511 including a health check.
This R170 series SLK comes with a history file including
V5C, owners pack and service booklet showing 4 stamps, the last in November 2017
at 72,000 miles along with five old MOTs in addition to its current MOT valid
until November 2020 with one minor advisory recorded for deterioration of the
central brake light.
These original generation SLK’s are really good news,
offering a rakish design with the hugely practical folding metal roof and usable
boot space with a range of engines, the 230Kompressor being the engine of choice
and offer great value for money as a usable sports car with low running costs
particularly when offered at No Reserve as we have here.
