R171 SLK55 last manufactured?

Anybody know when the last R171 SLK55 was produced?

I'd also be interested if anybody has any figures for how many were sold in the UK.

Cheers,

J

This is the response I got from Nils Beckmann when I sent an email asking about my car (year make model colour). I think I got this email from another thread on here. I sent a few more queations which were all answered.

Dear Sir,


Thank you very much for your e-mail.

We are pleased to inform you that there were 50 units with the constellation you asked for.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact us again.

Thanks guys, interesting reading.

I'd still like to know when the last one was produced. Mine was registered on 8th March 2010.

There must be some after that.

Anybody?

I think DEV7 has one of the last ones. He got his in October of 2010.

I want to say the last build orders were accepted in June/July 2010 for the R171 '55. I forget when DEV7's was built, but it was around that time.

Justin - pop me a PM with your VIN and I can pull the dates for you.

According to this thread he ordered his in June with expected delivery initially set for August, but he didn't get the car until October of 2010.
