I've had my '05 SLK Launch Model for almost seven years and have loved every minute of it, except when I caught the front bumper on one of those nasty cement bumpers in a parking space. Can you say cracked fiberglass? I even drove it over the pass from eastern Washington into Coeur d'Alene, Idaho this past October in a nasty rainstorm (with snow on the side of the road), and it handled well at a reduced speed of course. At age 70, I need something a little more knee friendly and was looking for some guidelines on a selling price. Even though the Launch Model only has aesthetics to set it apart from the regular 350, I have not been able to find any pricing information on it. So thanks to Mr. Banks for sharing Barrett Jackson's recent (3/15/18) sale at $19,500 and/or comparing it price-wise to an AMG sport model. I will sorely miss this fun little car and all the driving pleasures it has afforded me.
