Exciting design is in its genes. The new SLK combines driving pleasure and enjoyment. The look of the extended front section immediately marks out the car as a member of the Mercedes-Benz sports-car family. Its coupé-esque side view, with lines flowing into the muscular rear wing and short rear end, displays more than a hint of aggression even when the car is stationary. When the vario-roof is opened, it disappears into the boot to leave a hallmark roadster silhouette.
