The Mercedes SLK was announced in 1996, then put on sale in 1997. Up to this point, it has been through three different generation, and each generation the SLK borrowed styling elements from other Mercedes models, leaving it without its own identity. The first generation, for example looked like the SL , the second generation borrowed the nose of the SLR McLaren , and the third one features SLS -inspired headlights.
But even so, the SLK has proven itself to be a pretty cool roadster, and when the third generation launched on the market in 2011, Mercedes brought tons of innovative new features like panorama roof and Magic Sky Control.
The 2014 SLK is offered in two different versions: SLK250 and SLK350, with prices starting from $44,450. Sure, the SLK is a little pricey, but its standard features make it well worth the price.
