Its here!! The facelifted 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK was officially unveiled by the company today morning. The first thing you will notice is the F1 style nose which I personally think looks smashing! The rear gets a smoother look with a faux diffuser affixed between the trapezoidally shaped tailpipes.
The 2009 model also receives an all new interior which includes a superbly designed instrument panel, redesigned seats and a new three-spoke steering wheel. The SLK also gets new sporty tail-lights and headlights.
Two new engines join the 5.5L V8 of the AMG model, including a revised kompressor (supercharged) four-cylinder producing 184 hp/184 lb.-ft of torque and a new 3.5L V6 producing a whopping 305 hp/265 lb.-ft of torque. Both the engines have been designed to deliver better fuel efficiency and lesser emissions. The choice of a five-speed automatic and six-speed manual are available along with the magical 7G-TRONIC Sport seven-speed automatic gearbox. Prices announced are shown below
