An open top or a convertible may not be a very good idea for the Indian market but that does not really stop our auto enthusiasts from getting their hands on one, they are perhaps the next best thing that money can buy to enjoy the open roads and feel the winds flowing through your hair. There are couples of convertible already available in our Indian market and Mercedes Benz added their latest roadster to their Indian lineup recently which definitely is an attention grabber. Yes! I am talking about the all new Mercedes Benz SLK 55 AMG which is a more powerful version of the SLK class already available in our Indian market. Now a roadster with a V8 heart hmm! That is something to really look out for.

The standard SLK class was launched by Mercedes way back in the year 1996 in the International market, so this is definitely not a new car which was added to the German premium brand lineup infact this was probably one of the sportiest, lightest and shortest roadster available in the market. Now many will ask why we prefer an AMG tuned car. The reason is simple Mercedes Benz stuffs the standard cars with a massive engine under the hood and some visual elements to make it appear more beefy and muscular although these cars may not be the most practical ones in the real life situation but who cares if you have the money and want to get your hands on a powerful shiny exotic for yourself.

The Mercedes Benz SLK55 AMG as I already did mentioned above comes packed with a powerful top-of-line V8 engine which packs some serious punch, this roadster is capable of hitting the 100km/h mark in just 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 250km/h mark.

2016 Mercedes Benz SLC

2016 Mercedes Benz SLC

Mercedes Benz SLK Class is a compact luxury roadster launched in 1997 for the first time after the German auto giant unveiled it in 1996. The car was a symbol of sheer luxury blended with pure elegance and eye popping technologies offering the charm of open air driving.

SLK was first showcased as SLK II concept at the 1994 Paris Motor Show. The Vario roof was the main attraction of the car. It became immensely popular very soon. Well, there is no shame in accepting that, we all like the breeze to comb through our hairs. Yes, Mercedes SLK was offering exactly that kind of exuberating driving experience to us. Initially, it was a very popular car, therefore giving Mercedes a whooping sales figure. Although lately the sales figure dropped, and Mercedes started thinking about bringing an all new car which would bear the same legacy. And, here comes the new Mercedes Benz SLC. The newest model from the German automaker’s stable.

Recently Mercedes has unveiled the new SLC, which will be arriving in the showrooms around mid 2016. Good news for us Indians that Mercedes will sell the SLC in this country too, considering the growing popularity and demand for luxury sporty cars. The renamed version of SLK bears many design cues from the old car which is blended with new technologies and design inputs. This car also carries a touch of C-Class’s soul. To put it otherwise, SLC is the roadster version of C-Class.

The new SLC was launched in five different trims, which are – SLC 180, SLC 200, SLC 300, SLC 250 D and SLC 43. The SLC 43 is the high performance version. Mercedes hasn’t revealed any detail about which trims will be available in India. We take the opportunity to take a dig about the detail of new SLC Class here. Check that out.

2011 Mercedes SLK 350

2011 Mercedes SLK 350

If you were to conduct a study on people who buy a roadster the result invariably would tell you that people who buy such cars are confident. Roadsters are not for those who are shy and get conscious when people point and look at them while they drive around in their open top sports car. The success formula for a roadster is pretty straight forward. Loads of image, a posh cabin and make it reasonably fast. The idea behind the Mercedes SLK is to bring an exciting rear-drive, hardtop, two-seater which is desirable and practical at the same time. The SLK happens to be one of the most popular roadsters in the world and a trendsetter for cars in its segment. First launched in 1996, on sale in India is the third generation SLK and the roadster in India is priced at Rs62,59,500 ex-showroom New Delhi.
