That is definitely a SLK. The CLK comes with a soft top IIRC. And had twin headlamps, like the last gen c-class. Horrendous colour though!

That's a SLK 230. AFAIK, there isn't any CLK in Kerala.
@Foby: for what reasons were the car discussed in newspapers? Costly number?

No dude, CLK comes with hard top also. It also comes with two round headlamps like old gen E class other than twin lamp of C.

op

You are reffering to the previous owner of the Yellow SLK , he sold that car to a textile retailer in thrissur it self , the name of the shop is correctely written on the boot of the vehicle.

@Hanmust Today's flywheel really rocks!!!! Keep up the good work!

In the show the person describes about adaptive breaking system which holds the brake for 2 seconds even if we remove our foot from it on uphill so the car wont go down.

Is it really necessary for vehicles like GL and M class since the both have an automatic transmission deployed. I believe in AT cars, the car will move forward without going down despite of the terrain in 'D' mode.
