I just recieve my magazine today.
0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, 1/4-mile in [email protected]
which it's faster than the 6 speed manual covette.
Don't forget the covette it's 45 hp and 24 lb-ft
torque more than the slk55 and weights 155 fewer pounds.

As someone posted (sorry someone, can't remember your name[:I]) - it's not in MB's interests to publish the true performance figures of the SLK as they have a lot of slower SL's to shift at twice the price[:0][:0]

Yes and I think that the 350 is fater than 5.4.

I measured 5.4 with my snow tires.
I am quite confident that I can improve on that now that I have my summer shoes on.
Perhaps I can try that when all the SLKs are together later this month.

How did you measure that? 5.4 with Snows? Should be .2 to .4 fater with real tires.

So, have any of the magazines tested the SLK350 0-60mph time?

So far, car mag testing of the 350 has been fairly consistent with MB's claims, not grossly underestimated like the AMG. In their March roadster comparo, C&D managed a 0-60 sprint of 5.4 secs which is exactly what MB's claims were for a 6-speed manual. Have not seen a 7G-equipped 350 tested on an american magazine though.

One of the mags tested the 350s a few months ago and got a faster time from the 7G than the 6M. I don't remember which one.

Quickest sprint tested for the 350 so far has been 5.3 secs... which very well may have been on a 7G car. I'm not sure what source/magazine either. Either way, we can all agree that that the 7G has done wonders for all new MB cars equipped with them as far as acceleration is concerned.

"Wheels" mag. here in Australia tested the 7G-350 (Dec 04) and got the following (km/h) :-
0-60 2.9 sec
0-80 4.4
0-100 6.0
0-400metres 14.2 sec @ 162 km/h

Rolling start
80-120km/h 3.8 sec.

This all happened on a dry track (Oran Park) on a 12degC day.
