Hey guys ..

Looks like the new SLK has hit our shores in full force. My boss spotted this brand new SLK, must not be even a week old. It was parked outside the newly opened pub at Bandra Zenze with roof down. Confirmed its the new one after showing boss a picture . As it is he told me it had an F1 style nose.

That makes it 2 in Mumbai already?

But they do not make a SLK 230 anymore - its either an SLK 200 or a SLK 320

i think its the slk 230 old one in yellow. i was there at rain on sat night the car was there as well with the roof down. i guess the owner does not know how to convert it back to hardtop . neways it did have a small dent on the drivers side as well. so i guess its the old slk 230 for sure. i dont take pics nemore since my nokia 6600 stolen since a month now . u sure ure boss has good knowledge bot cars. ehehehe. on sat i did see a brand new 735i with huge huge huge alloys the guy knew i was looking at the car so he ripped the car apart i cud hear the engine cry. then the same night i saw new silver 5 series. had better wheels then the one u clicked dippy. then the slk then zayed khan in a new MINI with yellow reg. cute car though. then some more imports as well. this sat night was fun overall.

it's either SLK200 or SLK350. Not even the SLK320.

When did this rumour come? Well Spiderman had told me had driven an F50 in London but had also told me there was no point getting one to India since the other 2 Ferraris he drives are raised a bit.

Now this rumor hmmm....
