Hello guys and girls!

I'm a guy looking to buy his second car for some weekend fun, and for now my main candidates are either SLK 230, or perhaps Audi TT MK1 Roadster. I've been souring local adds, and I've found quite a few interesting machines, but one SLK really got my attention. It claims to have 179 KW / 243 hp! Now, as far as I know, no SLK 230s were ever manufactured with that power. I asked the seller about it, and he said it's an import from American market, that they had a powered up model for sale.

Now, I believe that it's an American import due to some other details, but I still can't find anything about it. Does anyone know if there ever was something like that in production? Perhaps some sort of AMG kit? Or is this some aftermarket tuning? Of course, it's also possible that the guy is just full of **** and can't read his own papers.

In the meantime, I'm waiting for him to send me some photos of engine bay, service book, and cars VIN, but until then, I just couldn't keep my curiosity just for myself :laugh:

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members as we welcomed you to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator. Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg. Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing. New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.
