Nice, very nice, especially the 'cough' 6.3 badge on the side.... not too sure if many people on the forum think that'll ever happen....

I like the sidelines, but I'm not feeling the front.

i thought it was 2011 for the next model...
although with the new Z4 it may come sooner, but the economy might make it come later

Looks like a photoshop of an SL and SLK, and has been floating around for a couple of years now.

I'm not loving it at all, and what are the chances of distronic on an SLK?!

Like UK said, this photoshopped pic has been floating around for awhile - ever since the new SL debuted basically. It'll be a few years yet before an all new SLK debuts, and what it will look like remains to be seen, pardon the pun .

For me, that would make the Mercedes lineup just way too similar. I don't know why every Mercedes has to look so similar. I think the current one is a bit different, and I like that.

The SLK would never look similar to the SL and personally I think we're looking more @ 2011 / 2012 in terms of a new model.

If memory serves me this pic was posted before.

doesn't really matter how it looks like... usually after about a year of being released it'll grow on you..

Yeah, like others said too, wouldn't 2010 be way too soon? That would have it out in a few months, and we haven't seen or heard any rumors.

Furthermore, why would they do a 2009 redesign for 1 year? You'd think they'd go ahead and get a 2010 & 2011 model out of the redesign.

I think Jan 2011 we might see it unveiled for spring/summer 2011 as a 2012.

As said above, this is a picture that pops up on the boards and in magazines every few months for the past year or so. It was even in a recent issue of "The Star" -- the magazine of Mercedes-Benz Club of America as the next SLK! But its origin remains obscure, and fairly reliable sources say the 6.3 just isn't going to be. Most sources say the new-design SLK will be introduced in '11, as a '12 model. Frankly, I don't think anybody knows what it will look like.

Todays Auto Express has pictures of a gull-wing version which is a hybrid electric/petrol and they say is due in 2011.

I liked the old SL better as well, but cars are like clothes to some folks. If they didn't change the style occassionally, they wouldn't sell new ones...

But if the discussion in another thread about the r171 55 perhaps being the last big V8, maybe it'll become a collector's item in the future.
