NO RESERVE - 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK 200 Kompressor


  • Long MOT to October 2023
  • Convertible hardtop roof functions correctly
  • Great tan leather interior
  • Mileage confirmed by MOT history

The Appeal

The SLK is one of those enduringly popular pieces of design, which managed to stay in production for over twenty years, and remain fresh throughout that time. Its sleek two-seater styling and retractable hardtop roof make it both stylish and sporty. And it allows the best of the weather to be enjoyed without compromising on comfort and weatherproofing when required. 

This particular SLK is finished in the attractive shade of ‘Cubanite Silver’ paint, which continues Mercedes’ theme of naming their paint colours after rare minerals. And this is complemented by a tan leather interior which looks very smart. 

The car features such luxuries as the ‘Airscarf’ ventilation system and Android connectivity. Its supercharged engine produces 160bhp and this is transferred to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. And to top this all off, the car comes with a long MOT and extensive original documentation.

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.


C&C 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 £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

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.

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.
