    New Merc SLK




    Finally after much anticipation, the new Mercedes SLK has revealed itself to the motoring world, and boy does it turn heads more than ever before. Set to be the Audi TT and the BMW Z4's rival, this new 'baby SL' is one heck of a killer convertible. It looks good, that's for sure.

    With the new grille that is inspired from the SLS, the sharp angular nose, and the aggressive LED day-running lights make the new SLK even more appetizing... It looks much more than just a compact convertible, it looks like it was mashed together with an SLS, an E class Coupe, and a C class from the rear into one compact masterpiece like one of those paintings where paint is splashed everywhere but it just works. Its a brilliant piece of design this. Mercedes engineers have retained the 'less is more' ideology and kept the dimensions of the new SLK relatively similar to the previous one which means it retains its agile feel, unlike BMW who have gone 'bigger is better' with its Z4 dimension wise.

    The new SLK features luxuries that originate from its bigger brother, the SL. Like the panoramic glass 'vario' roof which essentially is reinforced tinted glass to cover the center portion of the roof designed specially to let more light in if it gets cloudy and you want to be bathed in more light. There's also the new AIRSCARF system which warms your neck, not that you really need it here but its still a 'nice to have' option nonetheless. Together with that, comes the AIRCAP automatic wind deflector which makes sure wigs don't fly out of the car. There's even going to be drowsiness detection as a safety feature! Hope that option comes along with the SLK to Singapore..

    The rear wheel drive chassis remains unchanged as well, but its tweaked to give a more comfortable ride and sharper steering. Engines will come in 4 or 6 cylinder options with the range topping AMG version which will produce 400bhp from a 3.5 litre V6 twin turbo. The one I'll be looking forward to is going to be the baby version of the SLS Gullwing, the latter part of the name just sells the car already. Who wouldn't want that?

    It looks like a shrunk C-Class with the roof chopped off. Nice proportions but I think it still looks too feminine.
