The current Mercedes SLK (R172) was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and since then, aftermarket companies have paid lots of attention to it. Expression Motorsport is the latest one that has shown some love to the SLK . For this program, the German tuner came up with a pretty cool wide body aero kit that enhances both racing aesthetics and performance on the track.
The tuner started by adding larger openings in the front bumper and hood vents, helping improve the car’s engine cooling. If you think about it, the car really needed this update since its 302-horsepower, 3.5 liter direct injected engine needs all the air cooling it can get. Plus, for a better engine sound, the tuner also installed a double twin tip exhaust system.
The car sits on a new set of 20-inch wheels combined with a lowered suspension that offers the car a more aggressive look.

Expression Motorsport also worked on improving the aerodynamic aspects of the SLK. For this it installed numerous carbon fiber inserts and a carbon fiber front spoiler lip that offer the SLK a racing aspect.
The front bumper received LED daylights and directional foglights, while a new set of fender flares with air intakes make room for the wider wheels.
For the rear, the tuner also installed a carbon fiber rear diffuser.
