Upcoming 2013 slk car rental this friday

So I'm digging into the stats of the 2013's and Bella, my 2003. And I keep wondering which 2013 they're going to give me, rather which one they own. And so I went to the mbusa website to get the stats on the 2013's and then I went to WIKI to get the stats on the 2003's.

What an interesting comparison.

R170 range summary[edit]

Not all models were exported to all markets.
SLK 200 (1996–2000) - 2.0 L (1998 cc) 136 bhp (101 kW; 138 PS) I4
SLK 200 Kompressor (1996–2000) - 2.0 L (1998 cc) 192 bhp (143 kW; 195 PS) I4 supercharged engine, 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds, top speed of 240 km/h (148 mph).
SLK 200 Kompressor (2000–2004) - 2.0 L (1998 cc) 163 bhp (122 kW; 165 PS) I4 supercharged engine, 0-60 mph in 7.4 seconds, top speed of 223 km/h (138 mph).
SLK 230 Kompressor (1996–2000) - 2.3 L (2295 cc) 193 bhp (144 kW; 196 PS) I4 supercharged engine
SLK 230 Kompressor (2000–2004) - 2.3 L (2295 cc) 197 bhp (147 kW; 200 PS) I4 supercharged engine, 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds, top speed of 240 km/h (148 mph).
SLK 320 (2000–2004) - 3.2 L (3199 cc) 218 bhp (163 kW; 221 PS) V6 engine, 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds, top speed of 245 km/h (152 mph).
SLK 32 AMG (2001–2004) - 3.2 L (3199 cc) 349 bhp (260 kW; 354 PS) V6 engine, 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds.[7]

I don't know.. they just said "it's less than 6 months old" so one of the 2013 slk's. If there is a god, it will be the amg. LET US PRAY!

Praying.....

Maybe you should let them know of your preference (e-mail or phone perhaps)?

???? Surely you'd expect a 3.2V6 to develop more power than a 1.8I4????

.... hi.. im slk320chick.. have you read my posts? do you know me at all? .. i've called.. about a dozen times in 3 months. And every time [including today] they tell me "we cannot guarentee your vehicle, you rented the convertible class..there are only 2 types of cars we have in that class right now but there is a good chance you'll get your slk.

The other type is a z4.. have you ever experienced a significant change in the defcom rating system? heehee. Just wait for it Friday morning..11am Floriduh time. If the ground moves.. you'll know I got stuck with a Z4.

I thought you were driving down Chickie, hell, I could have flown! I think if you show up in a Z4, you're going to take some flak!

It better not be a Z4, because this is a SLK meet. We have turned down Cobra's before, not sure what we would think about a Z4. Who makes that LOL. Is that like, here it is the Z4 car or is it a Z-after car. Oh no here we go back on that exit thing again.
