SLK 580 Turbo?

On Monday (after the tire incident), I spotted a silver SLK (with MA tags) with the following badges on the back: "SLK 580" on the left, and "Turbo" on the right.

Does anyone know anything about this car?

I took a photo with the crappy iPhone camera, but you can't make out the badges.

Probably because they have small fishing tackle my friend so they think the more numbers they can fit on the less money they will have to pay when they wanna get laid.

Yeah, any smaller and he would have labeled it "bi-turbo"

He probably bought a 280, then ordered the 350 badge and took the "5" and switched it out for the "2"..... no clue at ALL where the turbo came from
