Agreed, thx for posting. I didn't know what the name meant before looking it up. My guess was the S stood for Sport, the L i thought maybe luxury and the K I wasn't sure...

SLR I would have guessed: Sport luxury roadster... hehe.

I think it's funny that Mercedes calls a 3300 lb car "light". Heck even the SLR is close to 4000 lbs. Are they not referring to weight? :)

I think LIGHT (Leicht) is a relative term :D

Compared to the rest of the MB fleet, the SLK is "Light". Well, unless you include the Smart...than the SLK is a monster and the S is...well...bigger than a monster?
