Who invented the car? The answer isn't completely straightforward; Leonardo da Vinci was creating models for transport vehicles back in the 15th century. France's, Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot, built the first steamed propelled road vehicle in 1769. If we had to credit one inventor however, it would be Germany's Karl Friedrich Benz, who most experts suggest created the first true automobile in 1885.

Who invented the über-high-air flow replacement air filter on the planet?
That's easy to pinpoint - K&N has been designing, manufacturing, and enhancing High-Flow Air Filters for anyone with a combustion engine looking to maximize performance since 1969.
Today it's simple to combine these two originators and increase performance on your Mercedes Benz SLK roadster in the process. K&N's 33-2985 OEM replacement air filter is designed to simply drop into the existing air box of the 2011 and 2012 Mercedes Benz SL roadster lineup (applications listed below). The designation SLK derives from the company's design mission to create a roadster that is at once Sportlich (sporty), Leicht (light), and Kurz (short). Introduced more than a decade ago as an answer to its European rivals in the luxury small roadster segment, the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is newly designed for 2012, and K&N's 33-2985 air filter embraces those changes.
K&N replacement air filters are washable and reusable and capable of running up to 50,000 miles before servicing is needed, depending on driving conditions. And where Mercedes Benz boasts one of the finest reputations for staying power and road dependability, K&N matches that by offering a million mile limited warranty on their
replacement air filters for street vehicles. No other filter on the market
can match K&N's history for quality, performance and protection. Period. Designed to increase horsepower and acceleration, K&N's 33-2985 lifetime air filter will be the last air filter your Mercedes Benz SL roadster will ever need.
