Classic Car Auctions says:

 

The Mercedes SLK (R170) was introduced in April 1996 and featured an engineering masterpiece, its 'Vario-Roof', which resurrected the trend for electric folding hardtops for smaller cars. With styling clearly based on its larger sibling, the R129, Mercedes' mini-SL was an instant hit in both Europe and the United States. In February 2000, the SLK received a facelift which included new front and rear bumper designs, body-coloured side skirts and new wing mirrors. X856 LOF is a 'facelift' car and is powered by the later 3.2 litre, 218bhp V6 engine mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox. 'Waxoyled' from new and acquired by the vendor in September 2003, the car has only covered 14,300 miles and has always been garaged with a fitted dust cover, which probably explains its lovely condition. Finished in Mercedes Silver with a dramatic Red and Black interior this little Mercedes looks superb with unmarked wheels and new tyres. The service history is not main dealer, but it has been cared for (very well we would suggest) by a family friend's specialist garage. With a background restoring vintage motorcycles and decades spent showing classic cars, the current owner knows, better than most, the requirements to keep a vehicle in pristine condition.
