SLK Day at M-B World, UK

It was the first SLK model-specific meeting organised by Mercedes-Benz Club UK today at M-B World at Brooklands. It took place in gorgeous sunshine (I bet everyone from Florida is so jealous) and the turnout was remarkable. There were in excess of 50 SLKs in the car park alone.



And looking the other way:



Then there were those in the parade area and other various spots chosen for the overflow. A great day.

I saw two ‘special editions’,



late model 170s with modifications such as chrome strips against the A-pillar:



different grills:



and other stuff.

Can anyone enlighten me on what these are, production numbers, etc?

Derek

Wow, I'm now famous. That's a picture of mine and my brothers cars.
The Sliver R171 and R170, 1st and 3rd from the right.
Cracking day and very hot.

Steve,

If you or your brother would like a full-sized image of the line up, email me at [email protected]

It was, as you say, a lovely day. They put the sprinklers on the skid pan and there was a distinct drop in temperature downwind.
