Various changes to the SLK 55 AMG have made the roadster appear "even more striking" and athletic, according to Mercedes-Benz.
The carmaker said changes such as a new front apron with a "more pronounced arrow-shape" and headlamps with a dark tint serve to enhance the looks of the vehicle.
According to Mercedes, the car has a "distinctly muscular aura" thanks to new features such as a modified Mercedes star, larger air dams and a black-painted transverse fins.
In addition, direct steering with variable servo assistance has resulted in "sharpened" handling dynamics, while faster gear-changes are made possible through improvements to the AMG Speedshift 7G-tronic transmission.
"The appearance of the sporty roadster now reinforces the car’s claim to special status even more emphatically," Mercedes stated.
On its website, the German automaker says the vehicle is regarded by some as the most beautiful car in the world.
It adds that the roadster is "a masterpiece of high-quality Mercedes-Benz technology".
