I found this interesting.

Older MB model weights from Mercedes Enthusiast magazine, others from manufacturers online specs.....

W202 C230K 1345KG
R170 SLK230 1385KG
W203 C230K 1570KG
C215 CL500 1865KG

to compare:


Honda Accord 2.0 VTEC 1382KG
Subaru Impreza STi 1470KG
Mondeo ST220 1495KG


MB's are not quite so barge like as their reputation in some circles may have you believe. Well mines not anyway :bannana:

you havnt driven it

Ok for dealing with oiks in Saxo's - but no use at all against a real performance machine

But I have turbo's for that - the SL is the only thing that makes me attractive to the opposite sex :)

I specifically bought my C220 CDi because of its weight! I tow a caravan and need my car to be heavier than the van. The C220 CDi is an excellent towing vehicle, and with a detachable tow-bar (an £800 extra boo hoo) the beautiful lines are not spoit when not towing.
