    The numbers are the MB internal codes for the models.

    W is a saloon, R a two seater (or possibly a convertible?) and S an estate. The number part is the first three digits of the chassis number which identifies the model.

    A 2002 SLK is an R170

    Put 'Mercedes model codes' into your favourite search engine for more information than you can handle ;)
