Mercedes-Benz wowed the automotive world in 1996 when they released the SLK-Class. Designed as a compact luxury roadster, the SLK's party piece has, and remains to this day, its slick folding metal roof that is a work of automotive art and theater. Renamed SLC from 2020 onwards, this Benz is firmly poised to become a future classic. If you'd like to get in on the action early, why not buy this first-generation 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Kompressor? The car has only 53,000 miles on it and has reportedly received a recent oil change, as well as a rebuilt AC unit plus new AC lines.
There's something about a red sports car that gets everyone's attention. That's why you'll turn plenty of heads as you cruise around in this 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Kompressor, top-up or top-down. The attention will peak when you activate the folding metal roof, and the electronic plus hydraulic systems work in tandem to seamlessly raise or lower it. We're told that the car has ceramic tinted windows, as well as new tires. Inside, there's a snug yet comfortable two-seat cabin that features black leather seats and some carbon fiber-effect trim on the dash for a sporty effect. You've got all the creature comforts and tech toys expected on a Nineties Mercedes-Benz. These include power windows, power mirrors, power door locks, and dual-zone climate control. The original Mercedes-Benz branded head unit with CD and cassette tape playback capabilities remains in the dash, and the current owner reports Bluetooth audio has been added. You'll also spot a set of Mercedes-Benz branded floor mats to add that extra premium touch. Granted, the interior does show some wear for its age, but it's nothing that can't be easily rectified. There's a small trunk as well, which is understandable given the need to stow the roof too.
This 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Kompressor packs a 2.3L in-line 4-cylinder engine with a supercharger, hence the Kompressor tag. The engine was factory rated for 190hp and 207lb-ft, which gives you a zero-to-sixty time in the low 7-second range. Drive goes to the rear wheels through a smooth-shifting 5G-TRONIC five-speed automatic transmission with Winter and Sport modes, as well as the ability to manually shift gears at will.
