What's the used Mercedes SLK sports like?

Prepare to be the centre of attention when driving a Mercedes SLK, as even now its balletically folding metal roof draws a crowd. The clever scissor action turns the SLK from snug, sleek coupe into svelte roadster in less than half a minute. The only downside is that the boot capacity is seriously reduced when the roof is folded.

The interior was a major step forward for Mercedes and it mirrors the exterior's attractive lines. Comfort is high on the agenda and there's little wind buffeting when the roof is lowered. However, taller drivers may find the cabin a little tight for headroom when the roof is up.
