Supercars | Mercedes SLK Supercars

ThisMercedes SLK will be the 2011 new Mercedes SLK out in the market soon, since this is still a prototype I'll assume that this isn't completed yet, but if this is what they have in mind for the new SLK I'd prefer the previous model's look over this new one. This square headed new Mercedes SLK will still retained the 2 seat layout and the 2 piece folding metal roof, but it'll be a bit bigger in size which is to comply with the new pedestrian protection legislation, aside from that it will offer a roomier boot space although it will be a bit bigger Mercedes somehow manage to make it 100kgs lighter than the previous model, this will also have a sharper drive while still retaining the comfort of a luxury car.

While under the hood Mercedes SLK will offer a various model trims on petrol and a diesel engine, with the base model equipped with a turbocharged 1.8 liter with 201 horsepower, the next will be a 3.5 liter V6 with 288 bhp and top of the line AMG model will have a 6.2 liter with 496bhp. There is of course the 2.1 liter turbo diesel engine with 201bhp.

Butsupercars the final launch of this Mercedes SLK might be different, if they were able to equip this car in their next generation engines, the entry level for this SLK will have a direct injection 2.0 liter producing a 235bhp and next in line will be a twin turbo 3.0 liter V6 engine that will produce up to 349bhp and the AMG engine will become a smaller capacity V8, while the diesel engine will also be upgraded to a 222bhp.
