Mercedes-Benz has updated their SLK model as the spy photos show while it is being road tested alongside it precursor somewhere in Germany this week. The new model was spotted showing more of its newly designed front end and seems to be wearing lesser camouflage than other past spied development vehicles. The spy photos of the new SLK and the present-generation SLK shows the best look yet at the significant changes made on the newer model. Based on the review, the 2011 SLK is basically the same as the current model but features a new grille that resembles the SLS AMG’s frontal pattern, while the headlights, bonnet and front bumper’s designs are new.
The side mirrors of this new model seems to stick out further from the car’s body and are on more slender stalks in contrast to the present model. Also noticeable is the LED daytime running lights shown behind the camouflage wrap of the front bumper. According to the reports, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLK would be powered by the company’s 2.2 litre BlueEfficiency four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel, with a maximum of 152kW and 500Hm of torque. There would also be a probable release of petrol engines with reports of a 3.5 litre twin-turbo V6 for the AMG model of the new SLK that has an estimated torque of 200 to 260kW.
