3 Generations of Slks

Hi there you have it 3 Generations of Slks. I borrowed this pic from the German Slk Club MbSlk. So what do you think have them sitting next to ea. other i think it is a nice way too see and compare beauty. When you look at the pic it really shows how much wider the r172 looks compare to the R170/171. I understand the pic is not the perfect angle but to me the R172 looks just wider more Sl like like it grew up over the years.and some specs of the car

I think this shows again that while the R172 is quite nice, it doesn't blow the R171 by any means.

I think all three look great!

Man, the new SLK looks HUGE compared to the smaller R171... Makes me wonder what they could possibly do with the new-style SL. It's already big enough!

R171 and R170 are about on par with each other.

last time a girl park her SLK next to mine, I think the R171 is noticeably bigger than the R170 when you compare them side by side.
