Spy Shots: Clearest look yet at 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK

2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK – Click above for high-res image gallery

We've been staring at spy shots of the forthcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK for months, but now we have our best look yet at what Benz' baby coupe will look like once the camo tape is peeled away.

The grille gets a nose job to match its larger SLS AMG sibling, and the photo above reveals it to be a more pleasing aesthetic than in previous shots. Also, it seems the new SLK wants to play with the cool kids who are all wearing LED running lights.

If our intel holds up, the reason behind the larger grille isn't just to mimic the gorgeous gullwing, but to feed the new 476 horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. If that mill is going in any SLK, it'll be wearing an AMG badge on the back, and we're hoping to get a better look when we stop by the Mercedes-Benz booth at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.
