- Two seats, a long bonnet, short overhangs, open top.
- Mercedes-Benz has positioned the new SLK (type R 172) as a puristic roadster.
The new aerodynamics package consists of a front apron, the front spoiler lip RS (also available in carbon), and the radiator grille with the large Carlsson horse. The grille inserts which are made out of electro polished stainless steel replace the honeycomb patterned plastic from the standard vehicle. The rear apron with its diffusor assists the optical and technical conversion and generates more downforce with the rear spoiler. The sport muffler delivers the appropriate sound. The flow optimized exhaust system ends on the left and on the right in two stainless steel pipes which have the typical Carlsson oval shape. A Carlsson C-Tronic performance upgrade together with a sports suspension guarantee more driving dynamics for the roadster.
