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.

I wonder if its going to have a slider cover like the SL's do so you dont have the bearing down on you all the time? I hope so...

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!

"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?
