Spy Photos: Mercedes SLK Nip/Tuck

There may be no vehicle least discussed among the Jalopnik inner sanctum than the Mercedes SLK. It's not a bad car. I even thought the poky first generation had a few sidling charms. The added power, muscular looks and neck warmer in the second generation were just fine additions indeed. But the SLK has never been a car to spark a furious debate escalating into drinks flung and haymakers thrown. And that's probably for the best. The last thing granddad needs on his way from the podiatrist's is a bunch of drunks arguing across his car. Anyway, it's getting a facelift for 2008.
