Here’s a sampling of some new videos from Mercedes of the 2012 SLK. The first video shows the SLK at a track, where the impeccable road manners of Mercedes-Benz cars have been refined through the generations. Despite being a luxury convertible, Mercedes has seen fit to imbue the SLK with nice engine sounds befitting an open-top driving machine. Banking through the curves, the poise of the SLK’s chassis is evident and exudes a feeling of control. At the same time, the open to the sky feeling that only a convertible can give makes you want to get an SLK in order to experience it.
The current SLK is the 3rd generation for this roadster model and features a two-piece folding metal roof. The available 1800 cc four offers two horsepower levels and there is also a 3500 cc V6 for even more performance. The SLK is now available in Europe while North American buyers will have to wait until the summer, which is a fine time to experience the open-top motoring that the SLK roadster can provide.
