Red 2012 Mercedes SLK 200 (R172) in PSY’s Gungnam Style [Video]
But for the sake of entertaining journalism, we’ll just focus on the car part of the clio. At the 40-second mark in the music video, we can see PSY is approached by a Korean comedian Yoo Jae-Suk, who’s dressed in bright yellow and drives a new Mercedes convertible.
The car in question is a brand new, third generation Mercedes SLK roadster, fitted with a cool vario roof that opens hydraulically at the touch of a button in a matter of seconds.
The car that has been viewed a billion times is an SLK 200 model, fitted with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 184 hp to the rear wheels and consumes only 6.1 l/100km, equivalent to emissions of 142 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
We’ve searched high and low and found that the SLK-Class is only sold in this form in Korea. Prices there start at 66,700,000 South Korean won, which is €46,800 or $62,180 at the current exchange rate. Dancing man not included!
