Mercedes-Benz SLK R171 - From the SLK 200 K to the SLK 55 AMG and Tuners

This second volume in a series that covers the SLK models from the R170 to the R172, deals with the R171, launched in 2004. A new front, borrowed from the SLR McLaren, a larger and better equipped interior, plus a safer and sturdier body should ensure that the new car continued the success of the R170.
For the first time a small sports roadster was offered with a powerful V8 engine in form of the SLK55 AMG. It should help to do away with the boulevard image of its predecessor.

This book comes with a comprehensive buyer's guide, R171 model codes and explains VIM/FIN and data card in detail. It talks about potential six-cylinder engine problems and covers the Special Editions and some of the larger tuners such as Brabus.
If you want to know more about the SLK R171, then this book is for you.

These are some of the topics covered:
- Development of the R171

This third volume in a series that covers the SLK models from the R170 to the R172, deals with the R172, launched in 2011.
