With just 13,879 Miles from new, this 2001 SLK230 Kompressor is about as close to a new R170 SLK as it’s possible to get.
First registered in September 2001, this SLK is finished in Brilliant Silver with Magma Red leather interior. It has the usual high specification including 5-speed automatic, air conditioning and cruise control.
Supplied new to Japan this car has evidently always been garaged and sparingly used before coming to the UK in 2018 where it has covered 2000 miles and received a big service including a transmission fluid and filter. Two keys and service history from Japan.
Thanks to the tiny mileage, careful ownership and the dry, salt-free climate of Japan, we have quite simply never seen an SLK in this condition. It is like a new car inside, outside and underneath. The engine bay looks like the car has just come off the production line. The seats are still matt in appearance and the diamond-cut wheels are completely unmarked and wear matching premium tyres all round.
It goes without saying that it drives as new too.
Note that this car is ULEZ compliant, so there is no charge for using it in London.
These early SLKs look better every year and represent tremendous value for money. If you’re looking for the best available, this much surely be it.
