I can only hope that's the SLR that got it' front end trashed by a lorry in London. In any event, it looks way "wrong" to me! :P

Does the SLK share any internal desing with the SLR? For some reason I thought I remember hearing the SLK platform was derived from the SLR's.

The SLK (R171) platform is based on the previous C Class (the R170 being based on the one before that) - the SLR has a 'custom' CF monocoque, designed specifically for it by McLaren

About the only thing they share is the "look" of the F1 nose. Even the '55 engine in the SLR is custom, and not shared with any other platform as far as I'm aware..

Front end is wayy oogly, but I like the spoiler. You'd think it'd interfere with the airbrake, but I don't suppose they did any wind tunnel testing.

I'm glad they removed the MB Star and put their own crappy emblem on there.
