The Attractions

Created in response to the great success of small two-seater sports cars following the launch of the MX5, the dynamic spider offered by Mercedes-Benz proved particularly attractive. The SLK R170 combined the high level of engineering of the larger SL with an original and pleasing sporty and compact design and, of course, the iconic and innovative folding hardtop.
A comprehensive and attractive range of engines offered buyers a combination of the SL's popular long-haul capabilities and well-balanced responsiveness. The version favoured by many buyers today is the SLK230 with its supercharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine capable of 190 hp.
This low-mileage R170 is equipped with that powerful engine and the popular automatic transmission that can be used in both fully automatic and sequential modes.
It is also enhanced by numerous AMG trims and accessories that make it stand out from the other SLKs.
Rarely driven by its current owner who acquired it in 2019, this well-equipped R170 is offered in excellent condition and ready to be enjoyed.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
