I read on the ney that benz is comming out with a new 3.0 liter v6 putting out 230 hp 0-60 in 6.3 but didn't think it would hit the SLK until I saw a silver slk280 at the outo show MY2006? Anyone know if this is truly comming to the us and if yes what the price will be ???
if the 350 MSRP starts at 45 and change the 280 should start in the high 30s? the 280 I saw had the US trunk with the US lic plate cut out so it wasn't a euro model?? So far the first difference i saw wwas the rims... They also had a red slk55. I usually don't like red cars but DAMN on the 55 it works..sorry forgot my camera so no pics

regarding the 280 I'm not sure whether you'll see it in the US but i have ordered one, delivery will be in June. I'm in Luxembourg/Europe.
I noticed car manufacturers give people less choice in the US (engine wise I mean), generally speaking, but I don't know why this so.
I'll tell you how it is once I have it if you're interested .

At the local benz dealer, I was getting ready to order a SLK350 for euro delivery in the fall and when we pulled up the offical mercedes dealer european delivery page (for US cars), the SLK280 was listed as available for the euro-delivery option. I didn't even know it existed, but it may end up being the one I get.

He said MD will only offer the SLK 280 and SLK 55 AMG and discontinue the 350 model. I call BS. but I'd like to hear if anyone has any evidence to support this claim.

just trying to push a sale with low class scare tactics that the 350 wouldn't be available and I'd have to settle for a weak 280 or, get this, the SLK 55 AMG priced at $75K.

I have just ordered one in phx--it is to meet the demand for all the people clamoring for the 230. the dealer doesnt know price yet but code seems to say about 46,000 with auto and sound packagee
