Auto Review: 2010 SLK350 Roadster

The 2010 Mercedes SLK-Class 350 Roadster is a supercar and you don’t need to drive it to know why. But I do hope you get to drive it. You won’t want to go back to anything else.

High performance sports cars are a dime a dozen in some parts of the country, but none of them come close to the luxury and class of the Mercedes SLK 350 Roadster. The get up only takes 5.4 seconds to hit 60 mph from stand still. And just 22 seconds to let the top down.

MSRP starts at $51,900 and that may be underpriced. The 3.5-liter V6 engine kicks out an impressive 300 horsepower rev at 6,500 rpm. The drivetrain is 7-speed automatic. The interior is all leather with aluminum accents.

And it still offers incredible fuel economy at 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

The body was inspired by F1 sports racing vehicles. The body length is 161.5″ and 95.7″ between wheelbases. She stands only 51.1″ high and that’s high enough. Of course, being a roadster, the seating is for two and that’s all you need. Great for those Friday night dates when you want to impress.

Of course, Mercedes-Benz puts everything into its luxury sports cars. From design to technology and comfort, Mercedes-Benz doesn’t let us down with the SLK-Class 350. Stocked with the best audio and storage for any roadster, this vehicle is romantic, high performance and low maintenance. It’s the perfect vehicle for the young individualist on the go.
