2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK Review
Admittedly we’ve had a thing about performance for quite some time. We have put all that passion in the 2009 SLK Class. Under the hoods of the SLK-Class is a choice of engines so advanced in their tuning; they can deliver nearly their full power at low rpms assuring rocket-like acceleration. The SLK 300 pairs 228 horsepower with six tightly spaced short-throw manual gears while the SLK 350 matches a driver-adaptive 7-speed automatic transmission with a retuned 300-horsepower V-6 engine. Then there is the hand-built 355-horsepower V-8 masterpiece that rockets the SLK 55 AMG from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.9 seconds. The redesigned instrument cluster features dial s that are bi g and bold for optimum visibility. And the hand- fitted leather seats offer optional 8-way adjustability for the best body positioning. The SLK interior. In a word optimum. All of which makes the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class that rarest of things — a true roadster. Unlike any other.
