Finished in stunning 744 Brilliant Silver with pristine Anthracite leather interior, it's simply beautiful and almost like a new car, its really is quite a incredible. I would even go as far as saying its probably the best example available of the now becoming sought after R170 SLK currently on the market. This first incarnation of the SLK roadster is in my opinion, and that of quite a few others too, sure to become a classic in the not very distant future, for two reasons; one, it was the first mass production vehicle to feature a very clever full folding hard top (aka Vario Roof), and secondly its replacement, the R171 SLK is frankly ugly, and to compound that, it's ultra complicated too and not as well built.
This R170 SLK was supplied to a rather wealthy gentleman, who bought it for his wife to use, having it maintained by Mercedes Benz of Chelsea. During their ownership the car was always kept in an underground heated garage. The couple also only spend six months of the year in the UK, and the car was kept in this same underground garage, during their absence, further preserving it. They owned the car for nine years, after which is was sold to another wealthy friend of the lady, simply as a fun car, and was garaged throughout her two year tenure. The car then found its way into the hands of a car enthusiast and MB club member, who was looking for the best SLK he could find. He has now owned and cosseted this car for the last four years, and continuing with the main dealer servicing. He's never used it in bad weather, and kept it in a dry garage, on tyre shoes and connected to a battery conditioner throughout the winters; basically the car has been stored correctly, by a true enthusiast. Now having just purchased an Alfa Sud to restore (some people are suckers for punishment!), he felt the SLK would not get the use it deserves, and as he needs the space too, he decided to sell. I'd always said to him when he wanted to sell this car, to let me know, as I was fully aware that it's one of the best examples out there.
As I've said, I firmly believe this is one of the best R170 SLK's available, and its an even bigger bonus that is the sublime M112 V6 engined SLK320, which really does make this little roadster into something rather special. This car has also been properly maintained, and maintenance has been preventative, rather than things being fixed, as they went wrong.
The service history details are as follows:
25/11/04 MB Chelsea 6,453 miles
24/01/06 MB Chelsea 8,745 miles
27/12/07 MB Chelsea 11,790 miles
30/12/09 MB Chelsea 14,270 miles
16/10/13 MB Sheffield 19,031 miles
18/04/17 MB Sheffield 24,029 miles
There is also all mot's certificates to support the history, and all but one of the service/repair invoices are present too. All maintenance and repair work has only ever been carried out by Mercedes dealerships, as follows:
Additional work carried out:
30/09/14 MB Sheffield: Gearbox oil and filter changed, and all important gearbox wiring plug upgrade.
14/02/15 MB Sheffield: 4 x Continental tyres; Correct MO (Mercedes Only) specification.
13/05/15 MB Sheffield: Brake fluid change /roof relay replaced (no fault with roof just as a preventative measure).
29/04/14 MB Sheffield: Antifreeze changed/poly V belt replaced/fuel & air filter replaced.
The condition of this car is simply incredible; the pictures speak for themselves; it's absolutely spotless inside, outside on top and underneath. Thankfully. unlike many SLK's of this vintage, it was specified without the hideous and sometimes garish dual colour "Designo" interiors which do not to age well, and look awful once the colour starts flaking off around the hand brake and gear shift. Conversely, the understated, yet classy black interior of this car, still looks, feels and smells like that of a new car.
Finally, I concede this isn't one of the cheapest R170's on the market, but equally isn't one of the dearest either. That said, I do think it's one of the very best out there, and there's absolutely nothing that will need doing. Sure, you can buy these cars for a few grand, but be prepared spend that again if you get it wrong!. Why not just buy the best and save yourself the hassle!.
THE MTSV DIFFERENCE
Unlike some, I don’t just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business. To read more, see my website at http://www.mtsv.co.uk
Any other questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or on 07976 280738. I'm a firstly and foremostly a true Mercedes enthusiast of many, many years, and a Mercedes Club Member, so it's a pleasure to meet and speak to like-minded people.
Finally, I'm situated in Keighley, West Yorkshire (Postal Code Area BD21) which is approximately 11 miles from Skipton, and 20 miles West of Leeds.
