As a member of the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which is the successor to the Mercedes-Benz 190SL and one of the first modern vehicles to popularize the use of a power-retractable convertible top made out of steel panels, Mercedes-Benz SLK350 was built by DaimlerChrysler from 2005 to 2007 and by Daimler AG from 2007 to 2016 as a compact sports car.

But then it was available for the Premium 1 package, Premium 2 package and Sport Appearance package. Equipped with 18-inch wheels, different exterior styling elements, a color gauge cluster display and others, SLK350 then got power from a 3.5 L V6 good for 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque and power was sent through a 7-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
