Mercedes-Benz R171

R171 represents the second generation of Mercedes-Benz SLK and is slightly larger than its predecessor the R170. The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is a luxury roadster built by the German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz since 1997. The nomenclature was designated to reflect the company’s intentions for the car – that it be Sportlich (sporty), Leicht (light), and Kurz (short). Production ran from 2004 until 2011 when it was replaced by the R172 .
