Pure sporting style

When the finish line is just a start.

Shaped by a rich racing heritage and the wind it loves to slice, the SLK wraps purebred performance in perfectly proportioned muscle. From its crossblade grille to its signature power hardtop, its passion is expressed openly. LED lighting and aluminum-trimmed roll bars assert its inner strength with scintillating style.

Power Panorama roof

How its hardtop makes it easygoing.

Like the Gullwing doors of the iconic 300SL, the SLK's hallmark is its power retractable hardtop. In under 20 seconds, it folds into the trunk, leaving ample luggage space and delivering open-air euphoria. Choose a standard Panorama roof with a tinted see-through panel, or the electronically variable tint of exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL.

Wind-taming innovation

Where even a gentle breeze is a rush.

Pure sports-car magic: an open-air cockpit for two that tames the wind as driving passions run wild. The SLK embraces you in impeccably tailored power sport seats, engages you with a racing-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel, and extends the joys of top-down driving with its available AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system.


Energetic efficiency

Relishes the redline, respects the blue sky.

Innovative engines deliver more power and torque with lower emissions and higher mpg. Both the 201-hp 1.8L turbo-4 in the SLK250 and the 302-hp V-6 in the SLK350 don't just get you to 60 in fewer seconds. Their rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection respond in fewer milliseconds, so all your getaways are cleaner.

Agility with ability

Eager for the apex, easy on the avenue.

Staggered-width wheels, a sport-tuned multilink suspension, a highly rigid body and innovative Direct-steer system team up for precise handling, crisp feedback and surprising refinement. Engineered to be cool and composed on city streets and confident in any corner, the SLK is as easy to live with as it is eager to live it up.

The 415-hp SLK55 AMG

Handcrafted horsepower, from one man's hands

Crafted by the hands of its own master engine builder, the 415-hp V-8 in the SLK55 AMG is also a technological powerhouse. Joining forces with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT® 7-speed and such handling advances as Torque Vectoring Brake, it's a racing pedigree you can feel in every rev, every move, and every snarl its four polished tailpipes unleash.


Endlessly entertaining

Plug and play, or unplug and play.

From standard wireless Bluetooth® audio streaming to an available 10GB in-dash Music Register, your playlist never has to end in the SLK. And while its available 500-watt harman/kardon surround sound keeps you in tune, the optional COMAND® hard-drive navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Weather helps you stay on time, too.

While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system's audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.

Line up the stars, or block out the sun.

A Mercedes-Benz exclusive, MAGIC SKY CONTROL turns its Panorama roof transparent by electrically aligning tiny particles within its special glass overhead panel. Switch off the power and it darkens, to help keep out harsh sunlight and its thermal energy. It effectively blocks UV and infrared rays in either mode, helping keep the cabin cooler.

Sports-car safety leadership

In the moment, and for your future.

The SLK raises the bar for roadster safety engineering. Advanced technologies like adaptive brakes and ATTENTION ASSIST® driver-drowsiness detection help you avoid an accident. And if you can't, an ultra-high-strength steel, aluminum and magnesium body, dual fiber-reinforced steel roll bars, and eight air bags team up to help protect you.

Driving while drowsy or distracted is dangerous and should be avoided. ATTENTION ASSIST may be insufficient to alert a fatigued or distracted driver of lane drift and cannot be relied on to avoid an accident or serious injury.
The roll bar system is designed to enhance the level of rollover protection compared to a vehicle without one. No system, regardless of how advanced, can eliminate the chance of injury in an accident. Please always wear your seat belt.
