A stunning new Mercedes sports car is about to take flight, feast your eyes on the SLK Gullwing! Auto Express has learned that the German firm is planning a baby brother to its forthcoming flagship SLC supercar and what's more, it's going to be a hybrid, too.

 

The model draws on the legendary Mercedes 300SL ‘Gullwing’ and imminent SLC – as previewed in Issue 941 – with a pair of doors that are hinged in the middle of the roof. And it will sit at the very top of the next-generation SLK range, providing a striking and desirable rival to Porsche’s Cayman S and Audi’s TT RS.

As you can see from these pictures, the new SLK will be much more muscular than the current car, with a sharper look previewed by the new E-Class (see right). The bonnet is long and features faired-in lights and a large three-pointed star, while underneath is a Formula One-style splitter.
