The Mercedes-Benz R170 is a beautiful car; first introduced in 1996, it was produced till 2004 before being replaced by the next generation Mercedes-Benz SLK R171 (2004-2010). The R170 was a car in its own league, setting the standards for Mercedes and competing heads on with other 2 seater roadsters like the Mazda MX5. The R170 Mercedes-Benz was well known for its vario roof, a hard top folding roof that transforms the sexy SLK coupe into a convertible.
