Mercedes SLK (2011): new spy video

Published: 05 August 2009 Updated: 26 January 2015

Our spies have bagged exclusive new footage of the upcoming 2011 Mercedes SLK caught testing on the Nurburgring. As you can see, the new model is still quite heavily disguised but those with a keen eye will spot the new trademark Mercedes styling line running from the bonnet to the boot.

As we’ve already mentioned in previous SLK scoops, the new roadster will come packed with all the latest Mercedes engine technology including a Blue Efficiency version.

Today’s new video footage throws up some interesting clues that the V6 could be offered with a manual transmission. It had been previously thought a stick shift would be offered only on the smaller engine models.
