Mercedes-Benz's lineup for Geneva this year was two unique special editions called the SL 2LOOK Edition and SLK CarbonLOOK Edition.
The SLK CarbonLOOK, has a “muscular” front and rear aprons and visible side skirts, “high-sheen” five-spoke AMG rims, dark headlight surrounds and anti-rollover bars finished in what looks like anodized aluminum.
It features stiffened sports suspension that has been lowered by 10mm and it gets its stopping power improved over other SLKs. It is equipped with four-pot engines that get cross-drilled front disks.
The SL 2LOOK on the other hand is aimed at being overtly flashy, with light shades of paint that contrast with the black-finished roof. The pack features less unique parts than the SLK CarbonLOOK, concentrating more on color and material contrasts; it’s available on all V6 and V8 models, including the SL63 and 65 AMG as of June 2014.
