Hi Everyone from Warwick, England

Hi All

Loving my SLK280!

Bought it on a whim after my C320CDI SE was in for an extended service a couple of months ago, and the manager loaned me her SLK200! Knew I needed more power, and the 3 litre supercharged engine got my attention immediately I started the test drive.

Thought it would be for summer weekends, but can't stay out of it!!

PS Thanks for putting me right guys....as you say, the 3 litre engine in the SLK280 is not supercharged. I got confused with the SLK200, which is

Hi From London.

I also have just got a 280, but to my knowledge they arn't supercharged, just a normal V6...

Still plenty fast enough

Although I do sometimes miss my 4.2 Supercharged XJR Jag

Welcome from NW Blighty..

As Woolly says unless yours has been modified, the 280 is a naturally aspirated 3.0 V-6. If I recall correctly they have about 220 bhp and hop along nicely. Yours looks to have the sport pack, so will have bigger brakes and lowered suspension (the wheels and rear spoiler are clues)..

Congrats on your ride. Hopefully we'll get to see you at one of the sheep hunts....

No, on further investigation you're right. It was the SLK200 which was supercharged (I4 engine). Not available on your side of the pond....believe me, the supercharger doesn't make it anything like as good as the V6 3 litre SLK280. As I said, I test drove one, then bought it's more powerful brother. (I didn't do any research, since I drive for fun.....)

I hadn't realised there was a pond between Warwick and Co. Durham If you're into 'fun driving', keep your eye on the UK section for details of up coming Sheep Chases !!
