Hallo allemaal,

Mijn naam is Richard en woon in Nederland.
Ik ben nu 2 maanden in het bezit van een Mercedes Benz SLK 200 R171.

Op de foto's kun je zien dat het niet gaat om een "gewone" SLK maar een die de nodige cosmetische veranderingen heeft ondergaan.
Omdat de auto is getuned door de eerste eigenaar is bij niet bekend hoeveel PK de auto exact heeft.
Maar als ik hem naast een Audi TT zet met 224 PK gaat het met de sprint naar de 100 gelijk op. Na de 100 loopt mijn SLK wat uit op de Audi.

Ben uitermate tevreden over de rijeigenschappen van deze SLK.

Hello all,

My name is Richard and I live in the Netherlands.
I am now two months into owning a Mercedes Benz SLK R171 200.

In the pictures you can see that these are not just one that has undergone the necessary cosmetic changes a "normal" SLK.
Since the car is tuned by the first owner is not known how much horsepower the car exactly.
But if I put him next to an Audi TT with 224 horsepower's the sprint to 100 right on. After 100 runs my SLK some out on the Audi.

Am extremely satisfied with the handling of the SLK.
