SLK R172 Gets The Black Bison Treatment From Wald International

The Japanese bodykit specialists from Wald International seem to be on a roll in terms of new product launches in 2014, as the following project is the second all-new tuning package that they've released this year.

Teased way back in November 2013 via a dark rendering, the Black Bison bodykit for the Mercedes-Benz SLK R172 has been finally unveiled, and if our eyes don't deceive us, we might be looking at an improvement compared with the stock car for the very first time.

Let us explain. In our view, the current SL Roadster R231 and the SLK Roadster R172 aren't exactly the prettiest roadsters that the three-pointed star has ever built, with each of their predecessors scoring much higher in this area.

The Black Bison bodykit seems to have corrected quite a lot of not-so-sexy lines from the Mercedes-Benz SLK, as if it has brought its inner sexiness for the world to finally see. Not bad Wald, not bad at all. Now we're waiting to see a Black Bison bodykit for the SL R231 and see if it manages the same feat on the model.
