2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK Review

Boldly leading the way into a new era of sports car it’s the all-new 2012 Mercedes Benz SLK. Under the hood lies a new generation engine that delivers more power richer torque cleaner emissions and greater efficiency. The SLK 350’s 3.5Liter V-6 is quick in getting from 0 to 60 and the paddle shifters let you control gear changes without letting go of the steering wheel. In under 20 seconds the SLK transforms from a sporty coupe to an open roadster with its power retractable hardtop. The sport steering wheel is trimmed with leather for optimum control. And the hand- fitted leather seats are set off by cool aluminum trim on the console and roll bars. Control the transparency of the sunroof with the SLK exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL. Beneath the vehicles sleek appearance is a robust yet lightweight structure engineered to help protect you when things get serious. The all-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK.
