Based on the then new A Class. A concept car released in 2000 at the Detroit Motor show, just 950kg (18.7cwt.). 1.9ltr petrol, 125 bhp, eight inches shorter than the contemporary 170 SLK. I’m sure you can see a family resemblance with the much later 171?.
It surely would have been a worthy and better replacement for the Smart Roadster. I’d buy one!
Alas, it remained a concept.

Nice concept... no chance MB ever builds that in the foreseeable future when killing off the SLK/C model line.... sucks really...

Nice find Tony.

That might make a nice entry level sporty car to replace the SLK/C today.
Price depending.

My gut tells me MX5s wanting a bit more comfort might get tempted.
And there's a lot of MXs out there.
