A.R.T. Program 171
The very finest in roadster enhancement
A.R.T. has developed nothing less than the most comprehensive range of ultimate tuning options for the MB Roadster SLK R171. The SLK summer season can’t get much better than that.
True to A.R.T. style, the sporting elegance of the aerodynamics components makes for a more impressive appearance of this roadster. Next to the front spoiler, side skirts, and rear skirt, an additional spoiler on the rear hood enhances the overall appearance of this vehicle. The four are harmoniously combined for refinement.
The short, SL-design antenna color-matched with the vehicle sets itself apart from the crowd.
Justifiably, the high-quality polished chrome safety roll bar with A.R.T. logo conveys a sense of safety.
A fresh look for the cabin: Lemon yellow is the color of the leather chosen to cover the inside door panels and seats. Carbon applications for the instrument panel underscore the technical characteristics of the cockpit. The multifunctional sports steering wheel is covered in Alcantara and leather, as is the gear lever surround. Fine velour carpets and light-blue illuminated entry ledges even turn entry into the vehicle a perfect pleasure.
A quick word about the engine: The performance of the SLK200 compressor is electronically modified by A.R.T. by means of the AS20K performance kit and modifying the compressor transmission ratio to get a hearty 195 PS out of the engine. The AK55 supercharger kit is the perfect accompaniment for the SLK55. Pure performance: 453 PS. Last but not least, the formidable sports rear muffler exhaust system with four hard-chrome-plated 80mm tailpipes.
To keep the vehicle firmly on the ground despite its high-speed performance, A.R.T. monoART1 light–alloy rims are available in size 18” or 19”. A sports suspension with special A.R.T. sports springs and comfortably set sports gas-pressure shock absorbers allow the vehicle to be lowered by 30mm.
