logo on proud display, the SLK is focusing on luxury, with plenty of room
in its sumptuous interior. But will the new styling actually leave the
competition behind? Two other cars, the BMW Z4 and the Audi TT 2.0 TFSI are
close rivals. The BMW has a classic roadster look with its massive hood and
rear-wheel drive. The Audi TT has an irresistible sound. Which of these
three roadsters will take the prize?

Mercedes-Benz SLK 250 CDI: Does A Diesel Sports Car Really Work? - XCAR
Mercedes-Benz has form when it comes to automotive innovation. Karl Benz
himself innovated the motorcar. The Benz Patent Motorwagen is widely
regarded as the first proper car but between its inception and now quite a
bit has changed.
Now cars have roofs, decent tyres, stereos, more than 1bhp and very
different fuels to power them. Petrol, the motion lotion of choice, offers
a lovely noise, plenty of power and some pretty decent economy; diesel was,
for a long time, seen a smelly, slow and for penny pinchers, however after
hefty advances in engineering it's become almost just as quick as petrol,
clean and hyper-economical. Ideal, then, for a saloon or SUV. But what
about for a sports car?
A sports car is supposed to exude elegance and cool while emitting a
smooth, slinky noise. Now, diesel still isn't associated with aural joy, is
it? So you'll have to excuse my confusion as to why Mercedes has put a
diesel motor in its SLK sports car...
The specs show that it's got a fair bit of shove, Mercedes' engineering
prowess means it's a really good steer and, while I'll fully concede beauty
is in the eye of the beholder, I think it's a bit of a looker.
The SLK's evolution is an interesting one. It started off as a blocky wee
thing, then evolved in to a far smoother affair. Now it's far more
purposeful, aggressive even.
SLK, in case you're wondering stands for 'Sportlich', 'Leight' and 'Kurtz'
-- sporty, light and short. It was supposed to be Merc's small sports car,
sitting beneath the SL. It's not all that 'kurtz' any more though.
Anyway, marrying a diesel engine and a sports car together... will it work?
It's something I really can't get my head around. I don't see how the
rumbly, penny pinching nature of a diesel can possibly compliment something
as entertaining as a sports car. So I set about finding out...
