One glance and you'll recognise the origin of the SLK's design inspiration: its arrow-shaped vehicle body and dynamic line seem to come straight out of motorsport. Even the new exterior mirror with a larger reflective area and the integral indicator lamps shaped like arrows emphasise the car's sporty appearance. On top of that, the new front and rear bumpers with trapezoidal-section tailpipes give the SLK an impression of speed. In short, it's a modern design which makes the SLK an instant classic.
A close look at the exterior of the SLK reveals many exciting features, such as headlamps with clear lenses, new dark-tinted tail lights, fog lamps with a chrome ring, a short rod aerial compatible with automatic car washes and the new wheel design.
The interior also meets all the requirements for a sports car: the new instrument cluster with red needles includes elegant instrument rings with a 3-D look, chrome-edged dials plus a clock and fuel gauge. And as soon as you get in, the new sporty 3-spoke steering wheels promises what you'll experience as you round the first curve: pure driving pleasure.
