I hope you like yellow. I always seem to go hot and cold on the color, and honestly that is because it entirely depends on what car it is. Last week we saw a very rare 1999 Mercedes-Benz SL500 sell for a bunch of money and I’m certain if that car was black, it wouldn’t have sold for that price. However, whenever Designo gets involved, they seem to turn the dial up a few notches. That was the case with this 1998 SLK 320 Kompressor up for sale in Italy. Hold on.

Truth be told, the first-generation SLK was not a beacon of quality for Mercedes-Benz. The interiors had serious issues with materials and the majority of them have aged pretty terribly – to the point where they aren’t worth much unless it is an extremely nice example. This seems to be one of those examples. Even with a fair 57,000 miles, this one shines above with the great conditioning of what I assume is very fragile leather. Personally, I think it is awesome you can buy one of these in yellow leather just for the craziness factor alone.
As for the price, $17,000 doesn’t seem all that bad. We are seeing cars sell for that and beyond, so it doesn’t surprise me this one is listed for that. I am buying it? No way. But for someone who loves the SLK and loves yellow even more? This is it.
