"There are a number of mechanical devices which increase sexual arousal, particularly in women. Chief among these is the Mercedes-Benz 380SL convertible." -- P.J. O'Rourke

From Steve McQueen to Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey, Tinseltown's leading men have been drawn to the car's graceful lines and leathery confines, while over the years directors have been so enamored of the two-seater that they've given it starring roles in films like ''Two for the Road,'' ''Shampoo'' and ''American Gigolo...

The new Mercedes-Benz 2005 SLK
The famed roadster, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, shows no signs of running out of gas. This fall the company unveils a new model: the 2005 SLK. This low-slung version, with a 268-horsepower engine, is meant for ''the affluent enthusiast,'' says Mercedes-Benz's product manager, Doug Worrell. ''It's for the guy that wants something more aggressive.'' -- 'Topless Club' by Steve Kurut, 9.19.04
