Sweet!
Keep your cam ready though next time.
I saw one and sat in one in Turkey when it had just come out.
Have the pic too.
Oh and i saw a black/grey colour SLK with nice sporty alloys.
I think it was the 55 AMG.
Could not see it though as it was in the showroom - Sanghi Motors which at that time was closed (7.40 a.m).

There was a blue one in Hiranandani about a year ago. Prashant Sharma owned it but he sold it. It was for his son. He used to drive it like MAD. i myself have seen him thrashing that car over a speedbreaker. The car looked sooo good.

Used to own one of those. 230 s just for show of . 320 are quicker. although Iliked the coupe with convertible style.

Looks hot for sure.... specially in black love the head lamps and grill. Alloys seem killer too, but i agree this car is a big too small like the previous slk.... u look at it from the front and u r like wow and u walk by its side admiring while u take 2 steps more and there u see the tails lamps! if it was a bit long would have looked way better. How much does this one cost on road bombay?

Hey good find Jesal...where is the location where you took this pics? and which cam phone?? and yeah it is a bit too small and not powerful enough for 80 L's ....I would have picked up a Cayenne S for that price !

The SLK55 will cost Rs 80 + lakhs - the normal SLK 350 would be in the 45lakh range
