Mercedes-Benz Wants You to Have the Best Summer Ever

August 27th, 2012 by

So this summer might be coming to an end, but winter would feel a whole lot shorter if you knew that when spring rolled around in 2013, you could drop the top on a brand-new Mercedes-Benz SLK 250? And what if you didn’t have to pay a dime for that roadster for 13 months? Oh, doesn’t that just sound like the best summer ever?

Mercedes-Benz hopes to make this vision a reality for one of their fans – just head over to to enter to win a 13-month lease of a 2013 SLK 250. All you have to do is submit your photo (or one photo a day until the contest closes) depicting what you would do with your summer if you had a new Mercedes-Benz. You don’t even have to be driving a Mercedes-Benz in the photo – you could be sitting on the beach with “SLK 250” written in the sand at your feet. Whatever it is that strikes your fancy.

And if you win – you could spend the next 13 months behind the wheel of a 201-horsepower roadster. Powered by a 1.8-liter turbo-4 engine mated to a paddle-shifted 7-speed automatic or 6-speed manual, the SLK 250 zips from 0-60 in just 6.5 seconds. Check out some of our favorite SLK 250 features below, and then head over to the contest page to start submitting your photo.

Don’t want to wait until the middle of September to hear if you win? Stop by the Gurley Leep Motor Werks showroom at 4004 N Grape Rd Mishawaka, IN 46545 to take one for a spin.
