Mercedes SLK

Three years before its official unveiling we have the pictures that prove Mercedes is working on the 3rd generation SLK

Though the prototype is still heavily disguised, it’s yet visible that front grille and headlights will be more upright and square than those of the current model. The new SLK will also lose the Formula-One-inspired nose the current model has. Daylight driving lamps, Mercedes’ new door handles and the bigger mirrors 'standing' on the door rather than being mounted in front of the side window will feature as well. And of course, the folding metal roof will be standard again, too.
