The new Mercedes-Benz SLK unites premium comfort and high-quality equipment and appointments with an especially athletic flair. At the same time the new roadster is the most fuel efficient in its class matched with segment-leading safety. All-weather driving enjoyment - open or closed, during weekends or the daily commute - is firmly anchored in the SLK's genes.
The completely redesigned V6 engine in the SLK350 develops 302 hp from its 3498 cubic-centimeter displacement, using this power to accelerate in 5.4 (est.) seconds from 0 to 60 mph (top speed 155 mph).
2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK350 Review - More than the sum of its upgrades
In the past we might have compared the SLK to that cute girl next door, or
perhaps even a confident woman in a short suit skirt and naughty secretary
So weren't we shocked when Mercedes unveiled the all-new 2012 SLK. To carry
on the metaphor, the internal monolog most certainly sounded like this:
"Whoa... it's a dude."

► Mercedes Future Truck 2025 (Autonomous Driving Demo)
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 constitutes a revolution in
efficiency, safety and networking, a revolution for road traffic and its
infrastructure, for professional driving and for the road transport sector.
This is not a new truck, but rather the key element in the interconnected
transport system of the future. It is being developed as part of the
"Shaping Future Transportation" initiative by Daimler Trucks to conserve
resources and reduce emissions of all kinds. Other aims are to ensure the
highest possible level of traffic safety and to Boost networking with intelligent data
management considerably for tailor-made vehicle and service solutions.
The prototype demonstrated the exciting capabilities of the
Future Truck 2025 back in the summer at speeds of up to 80 km/h in
realistic traffic situations on a section of the A14 motorway in Magdeburg,
Germany. Now the thrilling exterior and interior of that same vehicle are
One of the most interesting questions on the subject of autonomous driving
is the time horizon envisaged for its realisation. In purely technical
terms, turning it into reality on the roads is already feasible within
around five years. In terms of passenger car development cycles, a possible
start is envisaged in 2020. Owing to the more complex factors for heavy
commercial vehicles, the time horizon for such vehicles will, however, be
rather longer – realistically implementation is possible within ten
years, also in view of the legal considerations that still remain to be
The introduction of autonomous driving will not happen digitally from one
day to the next, as development is progressing in a gradual manner:
evolutionary stages are necessary to revolutionise goods haulage on the
roads. In the coming years, new and improved assistance systems will
continue to pave the clearly set-out way to autonomous driving.

2012 Mercedes Benz SLK350 Roadster Ash Interior and Metallic Storm Red Exterior
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Merecedes Benz USA - The timeless, classic
shape of the side profile with the classic roadster proportions embodies
aesthetics of the highest caliber and is a visual cue to the sportiness and
driving pleasure in store. Fine details show the care that has been taken
by the Mercedes-Benz designers. For example, a molding conceals the trunk
joint, so that the side line cannot get in the way, as it usually does with
similar roof designs. The ventilation grilles in the front fenders with a
chromed fin are reminiscent of the famous Mercedes-Benz roadsters of the
1950s. In the new SLK they form the perfect starting point for a feature
line, which flows to the muscular rear fender, using light and shadow to
add style and timeless aesthetics to the sides. Meanwhile the upper edge of
the wide headlamps -- which for the first time boast all-LED technology --
also appears to flow into the feature line.
Despite the most compact dimensions in its class, the 2012 SLK has generous
interior dimensions. To achieve this, the designers have developed interior
appointments that offer the driver and passenger the highest degree of
quality and pure precision. The interior is characterized by stylish
sportiness and genuine high-quality materials which have been processed
with perfect precision and skilled craftsmanship. Standard brushed aluminum
trim covers the center console; wood trim can be ordered as an option in
high-gloss dark brown walnut. Four round, metallic air outlets integrated
in the dashboard emphasize that this model truly belongs to the
Mercedes-Benz sports car family, their shape being a nod to those in the

be safer, more efficient and more connected as a result. The Future Truck
2025 thus marks a revolution for road traffic and its infrastructure, the
truck driving profession and the haulage industry as a whole.
Work continues to take the Future Truck 2025 towards market maturity -
series production on the horizon
The Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 is far more than a remote vision. The
truck should be on our roads in ten years' time. Many of its technological
elements are already available and ready to use.
"This truck provides compelling answers to the challenges that our
customers will be facing in the future. Our aim therefore is to press
forward with readying this technology for the market and to bring it to
series-production standard," said Dr Wolfgang Bernhard, Daimler Board
Member for Trucks and Buses, at the presentation of the innovative vehicle
in Hanover. "What we are showing here today is how the transport of goods
on our roads will be running more efficient, safer and more connected in
ten years' time. I am convinced that this will open up a whole new business
perspective for Daimler Trucks ," added Bernhard.

Compare it!: Mercedes SLK - BMW Z4 - Audi TT | drive it!
Mercedes gets a facelift to compete with two other roadstersWith its iconic
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?
