We haven't even seen the all-new Mercedes-Benz SLK in Australia, but already the go-faster crew at AMG in Germany are working on their flagship.

Carparazzi caught the car outside a McDonalds restaurant, proving that even AMG engineers have to eat, during track tests in Germany.

Now we're waiting for news of a Black Series workover on the SLK . . .
