R953 YAU - Mercedes-Benz SLK 230
Meet "Benny", my 1997 Mercedes Benz SLK. With just over 55,000 miles on the clock, he's a fine specimen of the original design of SLK.
With a 2.3l supercharged engine, his original performance figures were approximately 0-60 in 7.4 seconds and a top speed of 147mph. I've never even got close to unleashing my example, maybe one day...
Though he looks good in this picture, I'm battling with his bodywork - the lacquer coat is coming away from the Imperial Red underneath, and of course his front wings are a little rusty.
But everything on the car works perfectly, including the wonderful Vario roof!
