• At this price point, coupled with the low miles to boot, it's a more unique weekend drop top option. Reputation or not, the chances of you seeing another one on the road are practically none… although the Renntech badge will go over most people's heads. Ultimately, I think it's a cool car for someone who wants a zippy ride for nice weather… and the hard top convertible is a plus, especially considering it's age.

  • Ok…get ready to throw tomatoes. I've NEVER liked this model. Then there's the ridiculous interior in this particular car. Renntech should have gutted those seats!! It seems that if one wants the mechanicals and basic chassis and convertible, one could buy a 2005 Chrysler Crossfire convertible with the 3.2 6 cyl with just a few less ponies (215 or so?) for essentially the same money. Newer car, just as rare, same chassis (isn't it) and less finicky engine bits. Granted, there will be no points for driving Pentastar, although MB spent a ton of money trying to make the same car with a more 'Mericun suit.
    I will go away now…

    • I hear ya on the interior. Even Maserati's can sometimes have a hard time pulling off this much red. It would be easier to roll with if the exterior color were different – doesn't mesh will with the silver IMO. If was black or white, then maybe……..

  • This SLK is worth more in parts than whole. The m111 engine has been swapped into a 190E many times and this one even more so. The wheels are very light, rare, and desirable. You hardly ever seen real LSD diffs in Mercs. Then there is the huge Alcon brake set up!
