More powerful, more more intense

Stuttgart – The SLK-Class Roadsters have captured the hearts of sports car Incorporating around 650 newly parts, the SLK models of 2008 are more dynamic and now offer an more emotionally charged experience. Key visual enhancements new-look front and rear as well as a meticulously modified with a new instrument cluster and sports steering wheel. A V6 sports engine developing 224 hp and an optionally available direct-steer truly bring the bold, character of the two-seater SLK 350 to the fore. all of the engines in the line-up are now far more on fuel and, therefore, even less CO 2 . despite a increase in output in many The new-generation SLK models will be from April 2008, will be announced early in

Since their first in 1997, the compact SLK Roadsters come to symbolise Mercedes-Benz’ brand image. Already a sight on our roads, the second-generation is to be further enhanced with the of a raft of measures in 2008, to emphasise the car’s sporty and continue the SLK-Class success by introducing new, dynamic, elements. Sales of the SLK-Class are now approaching the half-million mark over 495,000 sold, 40,000 of which were in the UK .

The new-generation SLK displays new sporty further enhancing the appeal of the two-seater with the trendsetting that transforms the car from a into a weatherproof coupé in a of seconds.

Distinctive character: more pronounced arrow at the front end and a diffuser-style rear end

The have given the already two-seater cult model an sportier appearance. Eye-catching include the new-look front with a modified air-dam and a more pronounced arrow Plus the area around the star has been restyled to it even more succinct. In the designers have modified the end by introducing a diffuser-style lower that makes the Roadster more powerful when from behind – an effect is enhanced considerably by the trapezoidal tailpipes and the AMG-inspired darkened lights. The now larger exterior feature LED indicators with a arrow shape, while the of light-alloy wheels is also entirely new.

can enjoy a unique listening regardless of whether the vario-roof is or closed, thanks to the optionally harman kardon® Logic7® system. Rich and voluminous sound makes for crystal-clear pleasure, the like of which has before been associated a roadster.

Fast-running sports engine: output and much lower consumption

The sporty credentials of the SLK generation are further enhanced by modified powerplants that less fuel and, emit less CO 2 . The four-cylinder in the SLK 200 Kompressor and the six-cylinder sports in the SLK 350 both offer substantially power and torque. Only the SLK 55 AMG its familiar engine – an eight-cylinder that has lost none of its performance capability and remains a selling point in the SLK segment.

The engineers paid special to the fast-running V6 sports engine makes its debut in the new-generation totally altering the six-cylinder character by making sweeping to the mechanical setup. Although the remains the same at 3498 cc, the now develops 224 kW/305 hp at 6500 rpm – 24 kW (33 hp) more than its predecessor. The torque has also been by 10 Nm, and now stands at 360 Nm when the engine is at 4900 rpm.

This was achieved by raising the engine limit to 6800 rpm; it can be increased to 7200 rpm for a brief – oil temperature and other engine permitting. Other changes include a higher compression a new intake manifold and an extensively valve train.

Further which add to the emotionally charged of the new engine include deliberately sports-engine acoustics with a emotive sound design decelerating. In combination with the automatic transmission, the engine system also blips the automatically during downshifts. As as producing an extremely sporty this throttle-blipping function load alteration effects.

Despite the higher output and performance, the SLK 350 consumes considerably fuel. With the six-speed transmission on board, combined consumption is just 29.7 if the 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission is the sports powerplant returns a fuel consumption of just mpg. Lower fuel means that CO 2 emissions are reduced – by 23 g/km to 219 g/km in the version and by 28 g/km to 227 g/km in the version.

Three further to choose from

The engine for the second generation of the successful is being augmented by three variants:

The output of the four-cylinder engine has been boosted by 15 hp (to 135 kW/184 hp), while its has been increased from 240 to 250 Nm. fuel consumption has been to 36.7 mpg whilst CO 2 emissions been reduced by 27 g/km to 182

The SLK 280 has also been further with respect to fuel and, therefore, CO 2 emissions. consumption has been cut to 30.4 mpg (if an transmission is fitted, the figure is mpg), while CO 2 emissions been reduced by 11 g to 220 g/km (if an transmission is fitted, the figure is 6 g at 216 g/km).

The SLK 55 AMG is still equipped the familiar 5.5-litre V8 powerplant 265 kW/360 hp and a peak torque of 510 Nm.

Standard equipment for the three new SLK includes a precise six-speed gearshift, while the SLK 55 AMG still with the 7G‑TRONIC Sport automatic transmission fitted as Optional extras available a five-speed automatic transmission for the SLK 200 and the seven-speed automatic transmission or, the 7G-TRONIC Sport with paddles on the steering wheel for the SLK 280 and SLK 350 models.

New direct-steer system for agility and tangible driving

A newly developed direct system with variable assistance, available as an optional (standard for the SLK 55 AMG), further the qualities of the sporty chassis, agility and manoeuvrability when on twisting rural roads steering comfort when and assured steering characteristics travelling at high speed.

The system is based on the previously speed-sensitive power steering and operates by purely mechanical meaning that there is no for elaborate actuators and complex At its heart is a new rack with gearing, which ensures the steering gear ratio in tune with the steering The ratio is indirect when the is in or around the central position so as to excellent straight-line stability therefore, a high degree of when travelling at high At a steering angle of just 5 the ratio starts to increase rapidly and the steering feels more direct. As a result, the of steering wheel revolutions lock to lock is reduced by 25 percent if the new direct steering is This means that, in city traffic, relatively steering wheel movement is to correct the car’s path. sequences of bends on rural can be negotiated almost intuitively relatively small steering – with assurance, precision and a dose of driving enjoyment.

Visually enhanced SLK 55 AMG

On a technical the SLK 55 AMG remains almost unchanged. The differences are a few visual enhancements. The end of the AMG model now features a new apron a black-painted cross strut and air outlets as well as darkened

The trendsetting SLK

As trendsetters and technology the SLK-Class Roadsters have enjoyed the image of a modern car. Even after the modifications, the familiar outstanding remain, for example, the vario-roof transforms the roadster into a in 22 seconds, not to mention the extensive package, including head/thorax adaptive front airbags and belt-force limiters. Plus the also comes with the of the unique AIRSCARF neck-level system, which allows driving pleasure all year even in winter.
