    Take - back of end - of - life vehicles. Coming full circle. At the end of its long life, you can return your SLK - Class to us for environment - friendly

    disposal in accordance with the EC End - Of - Life Vehicle Directive1. But that day lies a long way off .

    1 Applies in accordance with national regulations to vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes gross weight. Mercedes - Benz passenger cars have met the statutory regulations governing the suitability of their design for reuse and recycling for a number of years now. A network of vehicle take-back depots and dismantlers has been established which will process your vehicle in an environment-friendly manner. The ways in which both vehicles and parts can be recovered are subject to ongoing development and improvement. Consequently, the SLK-Class will be able to comply with any future increases in the recycling quota within the stipulated time limits. For further information, please call 00800 1 777 7777.

  • Start measuring time a new way

    Ever since Einstein we have known that neither time nor space are absolute dimensions. Time can drag by ever so slowly, for example when you are waiting for something much longed - for, whereas in moments of happiness it feels as if it literally fl ies by. Seen from this perspective, the SLK is something of a time machine. A roadster and at the same time a full - blooded coupé, created so you can experience each moment as intensely as possible. Come along for a little time travel and become part of this fascinating car’s success story.

  • The SLK

  • First impressions count, and are seldom recon- sidered. One glance is all it takes for the brain to make a split - second, instinctive decision. Now, if it’s fascination at fi rst sight the moment you see the SLK, this could be due to its classic roadster proportions with short overhangs and a dynamically styled front end, to gether with

    6 Agility | Exterior design

    the sporty looks of the light - alloy wheels. Whatever the reason, one thing is certain : a lot has been said and written about designing cars. And a lot of verbose expositions have been made about this or that formal idiom, or these or those fl owing lines. But in all honesty – one look at the SLK says it all.

    From 0 to absolute fascination in 0.1 seconds fl at Exterior design

    10 Agility | Exterior design

    Its very design makes you want to set it in motion. With its beguiling looks, the SLK forms a thor- oughly impressive package from tip to toe. It goes without saying, of course, that the tail end of the SLK is every bit as eye - catching as its striking front, courtesy of distinctive tailpipes, the bumper with a hint of a diff user at the bottom, as well as the dark-tinted tail lights. Consequently, the instant you set eyes on the SLK, you will feel an urge ... to get behind the wheel.

  • 15 Agility | Driving dynamics

    Discover the joy of the perpetual perfect moment Agility

    You are enjoying the exhilarating acceleration and the incomparable sensation of open - top motoring : there are moments when absolutely everything seems perfect. Those are precisely the occasions for which we built the SLK. Then, time somehow seems to go faster, so that even driving great distances becomes an enthralling experience because of its intensity. Eff ortlessly superior agility, dynamism you can feel, plus remarkably precise handling with the optional Direct - Steer system all allow you to experience sportiness in an entirely new way aboard this timelessly beautiful roadster. Every single day, should you wish.

  • 17 Agility | Vario - roof

    Infi nite headroom, instantly! With the vario - roof, which made its fi rst ever appearance on an SLK. Pressing a button is all it takes for the vario - roof to disappear into the boot in 22 seconds. In the closed position, you will benefi t from the pleasant noise insulation it provides, and the reassuring feeling of having a solid roof over your head. With the roof lowered, the SLK boasts 208 litres of luggage capacity; with the roof raised, even more: 300 litres.

    In order to prevent irritating airfl ow turbulence in the neck region from diluting the roadster sensation when driving with the top down, you have a choice of two optional draught - stop systems.

    And if you are looking to drive with the roof open even when the warm summer days are a distant memory, you will be thrilled with the AIRSCARF neck - level heating system, which has been de- veloped specially by Mercedes-Benz. Here, air fl owing out of the head restraint provides warmth in the head and neck region, enabling you to enjoy the roadster season all year long, if you so desire.

    We do not pay lip service to protection of the environment. It’s a matter close to our hearts. As the inventor of the motor car, Mercedes - Benz has a special responsibility – one we have under- taken with all our might for many years. We can already off er you 66 models that place far less of a burden on the environment – without having to compromise on safety, comfort and driving enjoyment.

    Our BlueEFFICIENCY concept comprises innova- tions for effi cient mobility as well as optimised processes all the way along the value chain. They involve diff erent approaches, but they all have a common goal: to make your individual mobility as sustainable as possible.

    The BlueEFFICIENCY measures – the Mercedes - Benz efficiency package. The BlueEFFICIENCY measures are comprehensive vehicle optimisa- tions which save fuel and, therefore, ease the burden on the environment. Each model com- bines the most effi cient engine with optimal aero-

    dynamic and energy-management measures to minimise fuel consumption. Such measures in- clude intelligently controlled ancillaries, tyres with optimised rolling resistance, the ECO start / stop function, lightweight components and an aerodynamically optimised body design. All in all, these measures allow substantial savings to be made: fuel consumption and, therefore, CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 23 %.

    BlueTEC – the clean diesel. Mercedes - Benz has brought to market BlueTEC technology for diesel

    engines based on common - rail direct injection ( CDI ). It combines optimised combustion with a modular emission-control system, all of which makes BlueTEC an exceptionally clean diesel technology. Not only does it remove up to 95 % of the particulate from the exhaust gases, it also reduces nitrogen oxides by up to 90 %. All that remains is water, harmless nitrogen and the satisfying feeling of having helped to ease the burden on the environment.
