ESP compares the driver’s intended course, via steering and braking inputs, to the vehicle’s response, via lateral acceleration, rotation (yaw) and individual wheel speeds. ESP then brakes individual front or rear
wheels and/or reduces excess engine power as needed to help correct understeer (plowing) or oversteer (fishtailing).
ESP incorporates the functions of ASR traction control, which senses drive-wheel slip and individually brakes the slipping wheel or wheels, and/or reduces excess engine power, until control is regained.1

ABS senses impending wheel lockup under heavy braking and pumps the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together (to help maintain stability) as needed up to 30 times per second, to prevent
lockup and maintain steering ability.
Brake Assist senses emergency braking via the speed at which the driver presses the brake pedal and immediately applies maximum available power boost, potentially reducing the overall stopping distance
by eliminating the delay caused by a common human tendency not to brake hard enough, soon enough. Letting up on the brake pedal releases Brake Assist.2

To find the true essence of a sports car, look no further than the 2004 SLK-Class. The security and
intimacy of a coupe is transformed by its retractable hardtop into the exuberance of a roadster at the touch of a
button. Powerful engines include a spirited supercharged 4-cylinder, a robust V-6 and the intoxicating 349-hp
supercharged V-6 of the SLK 32 AMG. Advanced safety engineering and a comprehensive list of luxury features
perfectly complement its inspired performance. A crisp, modern, athletic design openly invites driving just for the
sake of pleasure. And for 2004, the unique allure of the SLK Special Editions highlights impressive value in a rare
blend of style and aggressiveness. The SLK. We’re tossing you the keys. What do you say?

The 2004 SLK Special Editions offer up a true challenge. Should you stop to admire the
sunlight glinting off 17" twin-spoke alloy wheels, the silver-painted grille and the subtle
rear spoiler, perhaps running your fingers across the special badges and contemplating
the compelling value contained within such beauty? Or is it better to turn those wheels into a blur and enjoy the
SLK230 Kompressor’s instantaneous 192 supercharged horsepower or
the relentless urge of the SLK320’s V-6? Or maybe you should just bask

Each Special Edition interior takes the
classically handsome SLK cabin and adds a
unique combination of features to create
an inspiring level of style and luxury. You sit
cradled in contoured sport seats featuring
soft Charcoal ribbed Nappa leather. Silver instrumentation and a chrome-capped shift knob stimulate
your driving senses. The SLK230 Kompressor Special Edition enjoys exclusive brushed aluminum interior
trim on the doors, dash and console, while the SLK320 Special Edition is dressed in rich Calyptus wood,
including graceful accents on the steering wheel and shift knob. After taking in either Special Edition
interior, you might have an incredible urge to drive. And you should — it is designed to move you.

The SLK Special Edition has a profound effect wherever it goes. The
wind is tamed by a subtle rear spoiler. Corners are straightened by 17"
twin-spoke alloy wheels wearing 225/45 ZR17 front and 245/40 ZR17
rear high-performance tires.1 And the eyes of passersby are delighted by
special chrome badges, just as their hearts are tossed toward desire.

There are times when only a red-blooded, top-down sports car will do. Hearing the wind rush by as
a 215-horsepower 3.2-liter V-6 launches you to 60 in just 6.6 seconds 1 is still one of the greatest
experiences in autodom. A perfectly executed downshift of the 6-speed manual transmission or the
manual-style control offered by the optional Touch Shift 5-speed automatic — sublime. Then there are
times when quiet and refinement rule. In just 25 seconds, you’re enjoying
soft leather and fine wood in the cozy security of a coupe, the broad
powerband — courtesy of a two-stage resonance intake manifold — whooshing
you along with contented ease. And just as amazing as how quickly the
SLK320 swaps its dual personalities is how flawlessly it performs either role.

Coupe /Roadster
The SLK320 provides exceptional indulgence for two. Eight-way power-adjustable sport
seats are hand-fitted with soft leather in rich Charcoal or a choice of two-tone motifs.
Air conditioning with dual temperature controls accommodates individual differences
while an electrostatic filter helps clear the cabin air. The Bose® sound system provides
outstanding clarity: Its dual subwoofers fill the interior with sound, hardtop up or down.
For uninterrupted enjoyment, the audio volume even adjusts automatically
to your driving speed. Your choice of hand-polished black birdseye maple or
Calyptus wood is fitted to the steering wheel, shift knob, console, dash and
doors to create true ambience, while dual retractable cupholders and ten
storage areas throughout the cabin are thoughtful touches.

In the SLK320, attention to detail inspires details worthy of your attention.
Aluminum door sill trim ensures a grand entrance. Iconic controls for the
power seats are instantly understood. The driver’s environment puts all

wood trimmed steering wheel telescopes to enhance your view of the

They say that figures don’t lie — something that must be very painful to other so-called
ultimate sports cars. The SLK 32 AMG’s vital statistics start with a handcrafted, supercharged V-6 that produces a staggering 349 horsepower and a 332-lb-ft mountain of
torque. Stirring the 5-speed automatic transmission with AMG SpeedShift™ technology
yields 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds.1 You dive into corners and feel the bite of Z-rated high-performance tires2 mounted on staggered-width
17" AMG wheels, and you bask in the assurance of oversized 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Inside, artistry meets athleticism. Outside,
the look is as invigorating as the drive, with dual polished exhaust tips, rear spoiler, sculpted front and rear aprons, and chiseled side
skirts. Number crunching has never been this much fun.

With its elegant styling, breathtaking performance and ability to change from a coupe to convertible in mere
seconds, the SLK is truly a singular experience. But for some, an added breath of exclusivity is desired. To
that end, we proudly present SLK designo editions.1 You’ll find two exclusive designo colors specifically
chosen for the SLK’s svelte lines. Delighting the senses is hand-selected Nappa leather, while special wood
trim — matched by eye for grain, then shaped and
finished by hand — give this very modern sports
car a wonderful touch of old-world craftsmanship.
TERRA COTTA EDITION

Those seeking a more robust experience will be drawn to
the rich Mocha Black paint of the designo Terra Cotta
Edition. Stirring your emotions is soft Terra Cotta Nappa
leather covering the seats and roll bars, and accenting the
door trim and floor mat edging. Adding visual spice, Natural
Cinnamora wood trim is hand-fitted throughout the cabin.
You don’t just step into the designo Silver Edition, you slip it on. The designo Silver paint
offers a soft, inviting glow. Inside, Charcoal Cinnamora wood offers a rich counterpoint, and
adorns the doors, dash and console, as well as the SLK320 steering wheel and shift knob.
Seeking your caress is supple designo Silver Nappa leather on the seats, door trim and roll
bars. And in an elegant finishing touch, the same leather also trims the Charcoal floor mats.

THE ART OF SUSPENSION
4-CHANNEL ABS WITH BRAKE ASSIST
In a true sports car, driving is an art form. The
road, your canvas — the SLK, your brush. Whether
you’re painting smooth, flowing arcs or swift,
staccato thrusts, a stiff monocoque body gives
exceptional strength for a steady hand, while
the independent double wishbone front and
multilink rear suspension keep the staggeredwidth wheels firmly planted for supple handling
and uninterrupted progress. Keeping you within
the lines, power-assisted steering is precisely
weighted for road feel and set up for quick
response, needing only 3.1 turns lock-to-lock.
And with the drop of the top, you can create
your own vision of Sunflowers or Starry Night .
There’s always the possibility that a surprise is waiting for you around the bend. But
that shouldn’t stop you from answering the call of a lightly traveled, twisty road. In
the SLK, you’re well prepared with powerful and fade-resistant 4-wheel disc brakes,
and a 4-channel Antilock Braking System (ABS) that helps to prevent wheel lockup
during hard braking, helping to preserve steering control. Enhancing your stopping
power, Brake Assist instantly and automatically applies maximum power brake boost
should it detect emergency braking.2

ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM
While the laws of physics may be absolute,
the perfect line through a turn is much more
flexible. Our Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
helps correct for understeer or oversteer to
keep your SLK on its intended path.1 If the ESP
sensors detect the SLK deviating from your
desired course while cornering — based on your
steering and braking actions — the system will
respond by braking individual wheels and/or
backing off on the throttle to help you regain
control and retain your composure.
SLK 32 AMG shown with
optional Lighting Package.
Handling. Roadholding. Cornering. What does it all mean? Allow the SLK to
be your encyclopedia of driving fun. From the quick response at the first
turn of the steering wheel to the surefooted stability you feel sweeping
through your favorite onramp, the SLK is engineered to be responsive to
your needs while also providing outstanding levels of comfort and security.
Its advanced technology not only gives a true feeling of confidence behind
the wheel, it also makes the SLK incredibly enjoyable to drive.

AUTOMATIC SLIP CONTROL
When exiting a corner, pulling away from a stoplight,
or starting up on any slippery surface, the most
important factor in accelerating smoothly is the ability
to tighten the tires’ grip on the road in a controlled
fashion. Automatic Slip Control (ASR) senses drivewheel slip under acceleration and can apply the
brake at the slipping wheel or reduce excess engine
power to help your SLK make a clean getaway.1
1 No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Please always
wear your seat belt. 2 Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake system maintenance, and tire and road conditions.

The engine is the heart of a sports car. Certainly balance, handling and
styling all play an important part, but from a contented burble at idle
to a gratifying redline rush, it is the engine that sets the tone for the entire
driving experience. And since the SLK affords a special appreciation of fresh
air, we’d be remiss if these powerhouses weren’t as clean as they are mean.

SLK320
Listening to the sonic high performance of
the SLK320, you may never turn on the radio
again. The 3.2-liter V-6 belts out an impressive
215 horsepower and breathes deeply thanks
to a two-stage resonance intake manifold. The
electronic throttle gives precise response,
while twin-spark ignition and a 3-valve-percylinder design burn fuel so cleanly, they
leave little but a song in your head and the
satisfaction of driving a performance car that
appreciates blue skies as much as you do.
6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Standard on the SLK230 Kompressor and SLK320, the 6-speed manual
makes sure you have the right gear on hand for every occasion — whether
passing or cruising — including an extra-low first gear for quick getaways.
A quick-throw shifter and silky clutch action add to the do-it-yourself fun.
5-SPEED TOUCH SHIFT AUTOMATIC
Optional on the SLK230 Kompressor and SLK320, the Touch Shift 5-speed
automatic transmission is a smart way to go. Its driver-adaptive sensors
“learn” your style and shift accordingly. The manual-style Touch Shift
feature lets you downshift and allow upshifts by tapping the shift lever left
or right from the Drive position.

When skies are blue and the temperature’s
perfect, there’s nothing better than the
top-down enjoyment of the SLK. But unlike
other roadsters, it’s a great place to be in any weather.
The reason: an ingenious retractable steel roof that can
be raised or lowered in just 25 seconds. Push a button
and the top automatically unlatches from the
windshield frame, folds in half, then neatly
stows itself in the trunk. When conditions
are less than perfect, raise the hardtop for
serenity, security and comfort that ordinary
convertibles can only dream about, while you
enjoy everything that makes the SLK more
than just a fair-weather friend.

again, is one of the most entertaining sights in the automotive cosmos.
Be prepared, you might draw a crowd. Luckily, you have the power
to escape if you need to.

only a Mercedes can provide
At Mercedes-Benz, we take an integrated approach to safety engineering, reflecting
a desire to build vehicles that optimize both the driver’s ability to avoid an accident and the car’s potential for
protecting all on board should an impact occur. The SLK’s robust structure and advanced safety technologies allow
it to pass our rigorous battery of no fewer than 28 different crash tests — more than any single government requires.
Standard safety features, including our Electronic Stability Program ( ESP ) , ASR traction control and emergencysensing Brake Assist, can be appreciated every day. Others — including dual front and side-impact air bags, or
seat-belt Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters — you may never experience. But in any case,
you can rest assured these sentinels of safety will always be on guard for you.
When you’re out for an enjoyable drive, the last thing you want to
worry about is your protection. But it’s one of the first things we
thought about when we designed the SLK. Our commitment to
safety engineering means that even though the SLK’s mission in
life is fun, it still has to meet the same exacting standards we require
of every other Mercedes-Benz model. And when you consider that
so many safety firsts are affiliated with Mercedes-Benz — from
inventing the crumple zone to pioneering ABS and patenting the
air bag — you know those standards are very high indeed.
EMERGENCY-SENSING BRAKE ASSIST
ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM
DUAL ROLL BARS
SMARTER AIR BAGS
Complementing the SLK’s advanced
4-channel Antilock Braking System,
Brake Assist can sense panic stopping
and automatically apply all available
power brake boost instantly, to
potentially reduce stopping distances.
In corners, ESP helps to detect and
correct oversteer (fishtailing ) or
understeer (plowing ) by selectively
applying the brakes to one or more wheels
and/or by reducing excess engine power.
Heat-treated micro-alloy-steel dual roll
bars are mounted behind the seats, and
are bolted directly to the body structure
to enhance rollover protection.
Dual front and door-mounted side-impact
air bags1 add to your peace of mind. As
protective of your finances as it is of your
body, the SLK features an occupancy
sensor to prevent needless deployment
of the passenger-side air bag if the seat
is unoccupied — reducing repair costs.
AUTOMATIC SLIP CONTROL (ASR)
HIGH-STRENGTH/LOW-ALLOY STEEL
ADVANCED CRUMPLE ZONES
ASR traction control helps reduce
wheelspin during hard acceleration or
on slippery road surfaces.
HSLA steel is used in critical areas
throughout the SLK’s body to create an
exceptionally rigid structure, minimizing
undesirable chassis flex for improved
handling and integrity.
Front and rear crumple zones
progressively deform to help absorb
the force of an impact. Full-width
crossmembers and an ellipsoidal bulkhead
help transfer some impact energy around
the cabin for added protection.
Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake
system maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
The roll bar system is designed to enhance the level of
rollover protection compared to an open vehicle without
one. No system, no matter how sophisticated, can
eliminate the chance of injury in an accident. Please
always wear your seat belt.
EMERGENCY TENSIONING DEVICES
AND BELT FORCE LIMITERS
In either a front or rear impact of
sufficient severity, ETDs remove seat-belt
slack to help hold you in place. Belt
force limiters help to reduce peak
deceleration forces on belted occupants.
1 WARNING: THE FORCES OF A DEPLOYING AIR BAG CAN CAUSE SERIOUS OR FATAL INJURY TO A CHILD UNDER AGE 13. A CHILD UNDER 13 MUST NOT BE A PASSENGER IN THIS VEHICLE UNLESS THE CHILD IS BELTED INTO AN APPROPRIATE, PROPERLY INSTALLED
BABYSMART-COMPATIBLE CHILD SEAT. SEE OPERATOR’S MANUAL FOR ADDITIONAL WARNINGS AND INFORMATION ON AIR BAGS, SEAT BELTS AND CHILD SEATS. Photograph of air bags is for illustration purposes only. Front air bags, once inflated, begin to deflate
immediately to provide a cushioning effect. The door-mounted side-impact air bags remain inflated after deployment.
