Jay Leno loves SLK's

It's no secret that Jay Leno has a soft spot for Mercedes Benz in his heart and it's clear to see his love for SLK's.
If you look over his left shoulder you'll see what I mean.

I would say SLR because he would have an AMG and the AMG has black grill wings not silver.

Yep, definitely the SLR, you can see both door open above the roof, like in this picture...
https://goo.gl/images/VUWYyb

I can find pictures of him in, and with, all sorts of old SL 300 gullwings, newer sl500's, and the latest SLS's but no SLKs!

I think his pockets are much deeper than mine

Yeah but I saw Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars driving what looked like an early red R171 in a 2010 episode last week. Pretty brief, just pulling into an auction.

The SLK is mentioned and pictured in this book: The Art of the Sports Car by Dennis Alder where a foreword is given by Jay Leno.

He likes most cars so I'm sure he's aware of SLK's but it's unlikely he has wet dreams about them.
