Very interesting. One of the older articles linked to on the site said it will cost in the neighborhood of $80,000. Any update on the price?

If they are made in the same factory maybe they are taking a leaf out of Mercs book and cutting costs ?

Yeah i read your post it is a very nice car but its just bits from the bargain bin the old E46 Convertible chassis (slightly modded) and the S54 M3 Engine that is being replaced by the new V8 M3.

The SLK shares electrical components with the E-Class but its chassis is unique.

By the way congrats on the award mate!
