Spy Shots Confirm Mercedes SLK Panoramic Glass Roof

 Spy Shots Confirm Mercedes SLK Panoramic Glass Roof
SLK panoramic roof spied

View the skies even with top down

“Sunny days/ Everybody loves them/ Baby tell me, can you stand the rain” so sang Boyz II Men, rekindling a New Edition classic. If you love the sun like everybody then you’ll love the new SLK’s optional panoramic sunroof, spied here in close proximity. The SL incidentally has the exact same panoramic roof which folds back into the boot. It looks like the C-pillar on this car is shaped a little differently so as to accommodate the extra-delicate glass top.

It should function kinda like the Porsche Targa’s where the feeling is always one of open-top driving, yet the roof is closed, tinted for protection against excessive sunlight in places where there exists such a thing. Mercedes-Benz also had the SL in this group drive for what seems like a comparison test between SL and SLK.

Well, let's see...we've tried putting stupid power into our cars, and we're still slower around a track than BMW...What can we do to even things up a bit? I know, let's put a glass roof in an SLK...that'll show em'. No, I kid Mercedes, they are always on the forefront of the most absolutely useless innovations. It's a good thing for MB, though, that they don't build driver's cars, because if this thing actually produced any power the "extra-delicate" glass roof would probably shatter under a hard launch...well done!

Yeah, so the ABS that saved your a** last week, and the ESP that will save you tommorrow, and the airbag/ seatbelt pre-tensioner that will save your life next week are all useless innovations... Thats only 3! Its too many for me to even try and name them all!

Don't get me wrong...I think at one time Mercedes was amazing...Your list of safety features was a good one, but somewhat dated...not to mention if you don't want the car driving for you, you turn most of that stuff off...and by off i mean OFF...which Mercedes has just recently realized the meaning of

Pre-Safe, the CAN, the MOST ring, Active Body Control, the Adaptive Lighting System, Brake Assist... I dont want to sound like a company sponsor or anything, but you gotta give credit where its due.

"Inside one can view the skies even with the top down." Um - Folks don't need glass roof panels for that...

Mercedes has this "modular roof structure" thing down. Do they offer it in the W204?
