Black Bison Styling Kit For The Mercedes-Benz SLK Unveiled

The styling kit for the Mercedes-Benz SLK was released recently by Wald International, according to a recent motorward.com report. The new Black Bison styling kit was initially previewed by the Japanese tuning company last November. The luxury convertible from Mercedes-Benz was designed to offer an overwhelming presence to its owners. However, the latest model of the SLK was not given much attention by tuning companies and the styling kit released by Wald International demonstrates this fact. Some industry watchers revealed that the design of the SLK does not make the work of tuning specialists easier.

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 »

2012 SLK Comes with Auto-Tinting Roof Option [Video+More Pictures]

With the third generation of the SLK on its way, Mercedes-Benz reveals that the compact roadster line will continue the tradition of innovation. One good example is a feature called Magic Sky Control—that’s what Mercedes-Benz is calling the new auto-tinting glass panels on the roof of the 2012 SLK. The roof automatically adjusts the tinting of the panels. This variable-tint glass panel, located at the center of the foldable hardtop, features embedded light-blocking crystals that allow for the tinting control. It allows owners to look up at the sky without having to roll down the roof, kind of like a pseudo-convertible experience on, err, a convertible. Users will also have… Continue Reading »
