Hi everyone, I'm really interested in SLK 280 R171 PFL (04-08). But I have a little problem- can't find any action videos with this car. Do You have this kind of videos? Powersliding, burnouts, drifting, accelerating, reving, donuts, etc.
I'll be very grateful for those vids.
Cheers

You will find that such behaviour is not common among SLK drivers. The cars are certainly capable.

nakulan7, I know that SLK is noble car, but what's wrong with having some fun with your car? You never play with your 350?

jbanks15, thanks for tips. But please tell me, where should I post my question? I thought it's a right place for it. Obviously I have used 'search', but I haven't found things that i'm interested in.

Cheers.

Having fun with car doesn't mean not respecting it. Please don't tell me that everyone who's having fun with his car is a boy racer. I know a man who has a Bentley Brooklands and enjoys to play with his car.

I just want to know possibilities of 280, so please, do not make a fool of me.

Nobody is looking to make a fool of you. I just dont think you will find anyone in this forum that does the sort of things with their cars that your looking for

Nobody never played with his SLK here? Really? It is a sport car, isn't it?
I don't mean burning rubber to the end of tire, but what is wrong with filming SLK running to 100 km/h?

This is very nice, thanks! Now You see what I was looking for ;)

But how about 280, because I'm particularly interested in this engine in SLK.

The first video was taken from inside a 350 I cant say about the others as on those meets there are just about every model of SLK taking part. The 280 and 350 are pretty similar. Both have V6 engines the 280 is 3 litre and the 350 3.5 litre. the performance is very similar. If you want more power you need to look for a 55 V8

I always thought there's a big diffrence between 280 and 350, almost 50HP and bigger engine in 350. I can't choose AMG because I'm very young driver, and AMG will probably kill me on first corner ;)

There's a difference, but both cars handle just about the same. All of the SLKs have more than enough power to exceed the handling limits of the chassis. On the 200, 280 & 350, you just have a bit more margin.

Here's a link to some more videos - not a lot of tire burning, but then again, that's not what I enjoy. Some were shot from a '350, others from a '55, but as you can see, it's possible for a 350 with a good driver to stay in front of a '55 quite easily. There's usually a couple of 200's in the mix as well, and they are rarely out of sight. Straight line is no fun for me, I like the twisties!
