Mercedes has come out with a new Magic Sky Control roof that is incorporated with the 2012 SLK. The company has tested the vehicle with their new addition that promises to keep cabin components (shifter, armrest, etc) up to 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit) cooler than a standard sunroof.

The device is claimed to be powered with the capacity to block the dangerous UV and Infrared rays. The switch located on the overhead console allows the chromic glass roof to darken within seconds and this block the harmful rays from penetrating to the interiors.

The car was tested repeatedly by the company and sp cams have spotted the car at the Death Valley. Engineers are making it ready for a perfect launch, scheduled for 2011. The launch may likely occur in Detroit or Geneva and the company has given great expectations for the auto lovers around the globe although they are still to come out with the authentic tech-specs of the vehicle.

The much awaited Hyundai Veloster has been spied at a hot weather testing in Death Valley. Spy pictures of the vehicle showed has less camouflage than had been  anticipated.

From what we infer from the pictures, the roof slopes down to curve smoothly as it wraps itself around the cabin that has a round two piece back window. The interior can  also be clearly seen in the pictures and it seems to have an adequate amount of space to fit four adult passengers comfortably.

Reports say that the Veloster coupe’s base-model will come with a 1.6-liter, direct-injection engine with 122 PS (90 kW/121 hp) and 155 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque.

A 1.6-liter turbocharged unit will reportedly come onto markets close on its heels, which will produce a healthier 177 PS (131 kW/175 hp).
