Need for Speed: High Stakes
The SLK 230 Kompressor appears in Need for Speed: High Stakes as a Class B vehicle with a cost of $20,000.
It is one of the first two cars the player can buy in career mode alongside the BMW Z3 in the same class.
It outperforms the Z3 in terms of top speed and handling, which is balanced by slower acceleration and less responsive brakes. The SLK 230 is capable of keeping up with stock Class A cars when upgraded with performance parts.
