Aristocrat Motors & Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City Announce Arrival of the New 2012 SLK-Class

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - Aristocrat Motors and Mercedes-Benz of Kansas City announced the arrival of the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class (http://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/vehicles/class/class-SLK).

The all-new SLK-Class leads boldly into a new era. From winning the first auto race to pacing Formula One, the course of sports-car history has long been guided by the Three-Pointed Star. Its iconic grille and signature power hardtop make the 2012 SLK-Class a rich racing heritage of Mercedes-Benz sports cars. Leading with an aggressive new design, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class draws on its racing pedigree to redefine the roadster experience. The result is an exhilarating vehicle engineered for escaping the everyday with the top down and the throttle open (http://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/vehicles/gallery/class-SLK).

A new-generation engine delivers more power, richer torque, cleaner emissions and greater efficiency. Its new 3.5L V-6, SLK350 is quick from 0 to 60, advanced rapid-multispark ignition fires up to four times in a millisecond and new high-pressure Direct Injection micro-manages the fuel spray as fast as 0.1 millisecond. Additionally, it is the world's first 7-speed automatic transmission re-engineered for performance that's more responsive and more efficient.

Paddle shifters let you control gear changes without taking your hand from the 3-spoke steering wheel. The lowered, sport-tuned 4-wheel multilink suspension of the SLK provides the ideal balance of sharp handling, surefooted control and smooth comfort. Speed-sensing power steering with our innovative Direct-steer system offers quicker cornering response, crisper on-center feel and easier low-speed maneuvers.
