The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK could give you reason to keep its trick roof up at all times, especially if you wrinkle your nose at diesel smell. Yes, the Daimler’s new roadster will be available with an oil burning option.
Automobilwoche [sub] brings us the blasphemous news that apart from three gasoline Motoren, the new Mercedes SLK will also be available with a diesel engine. That sacrilegious possibility had kept Daimler devotees up all night for years, now it becomes reality.
Mercedes-authority Car Trade India says it will be a “2.1L, 204bhp diesel engine.” In the meantime, Allcarselectric complains that Mercedes is “ignoring electric cars in its 125 Birthday Exhibition.” Can’t please them all.
