At the start of the 1990s, after the introduction of their two-seat grand-tourer, the R129 SL, the launch of the Mazda MX-5 encouraged Mercedes-Benz set out to create a new compact roadster, slotted below the SL. By late 1991, under Bruno Sacco, the first design sketches were drawn, with scale models being built in the first half of 1992. Massively successful in its first year, worldwide sales hit 55,000, over double the entire nine-year production of 190 SLs and between 1996 and 2004, over 311,000 SLKs were sold. The roof design consists of a folding steel hardtop with both halves linked by a mechanism that is locked securely when the roof is closed. At the touch of a button on the centre console, a hydraulic system controls the fully automatic folding process in which the boot lid is also integrated.
Manufactured in 1997, the SLK offered was registered new in the United Kingdom on the 4th of November 1997. Presented in the attractive colour combination of Metallic Linarite Blue with special order two-tone Blue leather interior upholstery, the Mercedes-Benz was specified from new with air-conditioning, spare wheel, adjustable steering column and Mercedes-Benz special radio system. Having just shy of 56,000 miles on the odometer, ‘R869 CDC’ has had just four former keepers from new. Offered with a no advisory MOT certificate until March 2024 and a current V5C document.
