Yup

1996

Mercedes presented the SLK II concept car at the 1994 Paris Motor Show, showing off the "vario-roof".[1] The car went on sale two years later in Europe, and in 1997 in the US. The SLK is built in Bremen, Germany.

20 years in production. Fantastic.

No matter which is your personal favourite, choice of colour etc
It's hard to find an SLK that isn't pleasing on the eye.

I look at both of ours and smile.

Sure, the vario roof is a key part of wanting an SLK.

But they just look right. Roof up, or down.
That's real design.

I know they have a few idiosyncrasies.
But they pale into insignificance as soon as the sun shines.

So Happy Birthday SLK.

And a big thank you to our American cousins who insisted that it got built when MB didn't see a need.

Thank you to designers who built a car that is as good in bends as it is in a straight line.
Thank you to the engineers and draughtsmen who have designed beautiful cars repeatedly.

Not many cars have an enthusiastic world wide following like our lovely cars.

And one raspberry. To the fool that decided to designate an SLK, SLC!
