convertibles and value for money may not be not concepts. Steve Walker out the 2Look special editions.


Before you might have shot an glance or two toward convertible as they bask in the glorious and you sit shaded by your own car’s roof, listening to the air-con’s whirr. A little jealousy is to be ashamed of. Cars without have something special them. Almost any amount of can be instantly massaged away by a few with the wind rushing the sun beating down and nothing but the bright blue sky. If not, Mercedes thinks it can tip you the edge by also appealing on a hard financial level its SLK 2Look special edition.

Although monstrously successful, the generation Mercedes-Benz SLK, in 1997, never really hit the It looked great and the folding top roof was pioneering and brilliantly but it was just too self-congratulatory and not enough of a car. Put one back to back a Porsche Boxster and you had to wonder how got away with it for so long. in 2004 it launched an all-new SLK and changed. A lot. Retaining the and the party piece roof, the SLK can now with the leading roadsters in of handling and driver enjoyment

The most popular engine in the SLK is also the cheapest, no great there then. It’s the supercharged unit found in the SLK 200 model and it’s the only available in 2Look special form. With 184bhp, a good way down on the six and eight engines that are offered up the SLK ladder but the 0-60mph sprint detain you for just 7.6 seconds and a 144mph top speed so this is no The comparatively small engine is a fit in the SLK, reducing the weight at the end and contributing to a more nimble and feel in the handling. The gearbox at this entry level is manual or five-speed automatic: the 7-speed auto is only with the lustier engines.

Mercedes is aiming to make the to premium convertible ownership for financial as well as emotional

All models in the SLK range feature the steering system with assistance that was originally to the 55 AMG range-topper. This system that both city and fast, sweeping bends can be with relatively small movements. It takes a little to get used to, but the benefits are clear to see and when performing an emergency change.

The 2Look package follows special edition themes a range of extras fitted at an discount. The car comes in black or with 18 twin-spoke alloy fitted as standard. The wheels can be in titanium or silver finishes and the touches to the 2Look exterior the form of black surrounds for the and discreet 2Look badges on the Inside the car, the sports steering wheel, centre and door panels are finished in leather. There’s also roof lining which shouldn’t see too much of if they use convertible as intended and black mats with 2Look

Mercedes worked hard on the and feel of this SLK. The end features an even more arrow shape while the end gets an F1-style diffuser to plant the car to the tarmac. Trapezoid tailpipes and AMG-style darkened lights also feature as as arrow-shaped LED indicators in the door housings. The SLK always has been the neatest shape of any folding top car and the latest modifications just the look a touch further. Of all the roadster models, the SLK feels the built and the easiest to operate. in the boot is at a premium when the roof is folded but interior is fine for two.

The 2Look models hinge on price and the equipment customers get for money but it’s also knowing that only 150 models will be sold in the UK this particular edition an degreee of exclusivity. Priced at £1,800 more than the SLK 200K model, the 2Look has worth of extra equipment so reasonable saving there to waverers away from Porsche Boxsters and BMW Z4s.

equipment levels are strong the board and an enhanced audio and system on every car features hands free integration, an connection in the glove box and even the of LINGUATRONIC voice operation. options include a harmon sound system and the Airscarf heating system which is a if you want to get the most out of your open top.

One of the key aims with the latest SLK has to reduce fuel consumption and the SLK is the strongest models in this The car now returns 36.7mpg and emits 182g/km. A three-year unlimited warranty should inspire as should Mercedes experience it comes to the manufacture of folding roofs.

With its SLK 2Look edition models Mercedes is to make the path to premium ownership appealing for financial as as emotional reasons. Basically, a of extras is thrown in at a discount on the SLK 200K model. It might not be the powerful SLK going but it displays all the key that makes the car one of the UK’s prestige roadsters and does so at a accessible price.

The Mercedes SLK has itself as probably the most of the premium roadsters in terms of an proposition. It may lose out to the Porsche in ultimate handling, to the BMW Z4 when it to styling edginess and to the Audi TT in of surprise and delight design but of these cars blend a rich range of talents as the Mercedes.
