Vath Mercedes SLK Tuning Kit Released

Although the 2012 SLK is already a pretty nice car as it is, a little bit more is much better, when it comes to upgrades. In this vein, Vath has released its bodykit, performance and interior upgrade lines for the car. As you can see, the body mods include a new front lip and rear diffuser tied together by a lowered suspension riding on 20-inch wheels.  Interior upgrades aren’t as dramatic, with just some carbon fiber trim, new floor mats and aluminum pedals. But the replacement speedometer hints at what the Vath-massaged SLK can offer the driver, as the upper reaches of the 205 mile per hour speedometer can be… Continue Reading »

Diesel in a Sportscar? The SLK 250 CDI Made it Possible

Before, nobody would ever think that a sportscar with a diesel engine will ever come to life. Some cannot believe that it could run that fast. But the SLK 250 CDI is now out to prove them wrong. The introduction of the new SLK 250 CDI by Mercedes-Benz not only marks the continuation of the company’s unique diesel engine heritage, but also serves to counter in impressive style the common misconception that diesel engines and sports cars are incompatible. The four-cylinder diesel engine in the Roadster delivers 150 kW (204 hp) from a displacement of just 2.2 litres to give the two-seater its characteristic sporty temperament. The sprint from zero… Continue Reading »

Geneva 2009: Mercedes-Benz SLK 2LOOK Edition

At the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a new, eye-catching special model in the successful SLK series with the model suffix “2LOOK Edition”. This new model variant, which is specifically aimed at a younger target group, is only available in glossy black or lustrous white. This styling touch is harmoniously complemented by a two-tone interior with high-grade materials in dramatic black-and-white contrasts. The attraction of opposites – this is the concept with which the new Mercedes-Benz SLK “2LOOK Edition” special model will enter the new open-top season. The intentional limitation to a black-and-white colour scheme both inside and out lends this successful two-seater with a vario-roof an exclusive,… Continue Reading »

Spy shots of 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLK

The next-generation SLK test mule has been spotted making rounds on a track, prepping for a possible 2010 release date. The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLK will spot a similar, if not same, hard top folding roof, get some new LED fog lights as well as be similar in design to the new SLC Gullwing in the front. Our friends over at GlobalMotors.net have also noticed that the side mirrors are attached to the doors on this prototype, but that could be only temporary. In terms of engine options, a diesel 2.2 liter 4 cylider twin-turbo may also be available upon launch, and some say that even a hybrid version will available…. Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz working on a SLK Gullwing?

Is Mercedes-Benz prepping a new low-end Gullwing? Well according to AutoExpress, Mercedes has plans to bring a new SLK Gullwing to the masses, which may look very similar to its bigger brother, the SLC Gullwing. Besides having some amazing gullwing doors, and draw inspiration from the legendary 300SL, it is also supposed to be hybrid. With some very muscular lines, it will be a big change compared to the current SLK (which women love to drive). The hood is much longer and due to the gullwing doors, the side sills will be much higher than on normal cars. The designers actually took that weakness and turned it into an opportunity….

Mercedes-Benz Off to a Good Start in Summer

Mercedes-Benz has gotten off to a good start in the “convertible season” with its updated models.
