2008 model year changes

On the SLK350, the 7-speed automatic transmission becomes standard as part of a 10th Anniversary package which also includes special badging and red interior trim accents. Base prices increase slightly for all three SLK-Class trims, and now range from $43,900 for the SLK280 up to $62,950 for the SLK55 AMG.

Special features for 2008

With a secure, power retractable hardtop, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster offers more refinement and civility than budget-priced roadsters like the Mazda Miata and Pontiac Solstice, and provides a luxurious interior and performance similar to that of the larger SL-Class. It also ranks as one of the safest convertibles, with head-protective side air bags.


This sharp little two door Roadster offers beautiful styling, excellent handling and a convenient, power-retractable hardtop. It’s offered in three trims – the 3.0-liter, the 3.5-liter and the 5.5-liter AMG – with engines ranging from a 228 horsepower 3.0-liter V6 to a 355 horsepower 5.5-liter V8. The SLK280 offers seating capacity for up to two in a not-so-spacious cabin, but that’s to be expected for a vehicle in this class. Luxury amenities include dual zone auto climate control, cruise, keyless entry, power controls, navigation, heated lumbar memory seats and Satellite radio.
