2000 SLK230 Copper Designo info?

Does anyone have any information about this car?

My understanding is that there were only 400 made and 125 of them sent to the United States.

Any info would be appreciated.

There is nothing unique about the car except the color combination. They also came out with a green Designio that was more rare, or less popular depending on your point of view............

What you say is true, but the per color and 2 tone Designo interior is what attracted me to the car and since it was only produced in that color for 1 year I had to buy it!

I think this is what makes it stand out from the rest.

The comment wasn't meant to disparage the car, it's just a statement of fact. The Designio series are basicly standard cars (in all classes) with a different color package. I believe the leather is of a higher grade as well, but there is no change in handling or power. In Europe there is a wider set of color options in both Designio and "Standard" grade cars………...

Great Price!
The color makes it stand out from all the others.

According to MB there are only 30 of the '00 Limited Edition Designo copper colored SLK230's shipped to the USA.
So if you have one...post pics and location.

9K...that's a great price! I paid $16K for mine in '05 with 74K miles.

And what Brent said about posting pics.

$9k sounds like an excellent price. We got ours two 1/2 years ago for $16K. The car had 41,ooo miles on it.

However, don't expect to ever go incognito with this color car. Everyone will recognize you a mile away.

An orange one just sold in the UK for £4000 British Pounds but it was a pre facelift and it looked a bit dated so i bought a red facelift one.

Mine looks pretty much like yours except my seat cover is a little older, but just as pretty.

I also have a long european plate on the front and a full windrestrictor.

Did you take the Thruway or the Taconic to head north? The Taconic is a bit longer bu a much more scenic route. You just cross over the Hudson much higher up.
