Stuttgart- When the SLK first appeared as a production model in 1996, it caused a sensation and founded a new generation of roadsters: For the first time, Mercedes-Benz had produced a roadster whose fixed vario-roof redefined the roadster segment by combining open-air driving pleasure with uncompromised comfort in poor weather – that had never been available before. Furthermore, the SLK started its career in the launch colour yellowstone, an unusual choice for Mercedes-Benz. In reminiscence of this world premiere, the Final Edition of the SLC is available in the exclusive paint finish sun yellow. Boasting an extensive range scope of equipment and unique interior details, the special edition of the SLC marks the pinnacle of the current model generation. The Final Edition can be combined with all four engine variants. It will arrive at dealerships starting in March 2019 and can be ordered from 22 February with prices starting at 41,536.95 euros (incl. 19% VAT).
There is a choice of two visual versions for the SLC 180, SLC 200 and SLC 300 (combined fuel consumption: 7.0-6.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 161-144 g/km)1. Customers who opt for a standard black, obsidian black or selenite grey paint finish receive an SLC whose AMG Styling front bumper comes with trim strips sporting a silver chrome finish on the lower section. Conversely, in combination with sun yellow, polar white and diamond white paintwork, the lower section of the trim strips is finished in black. The door handles, mirrors and rear brace sport a high-gloss black finish in combination with the bright exterior colours for contrast. Their common feature is the exclusive SLC Final Edition badge on the front wings, below the chromed fin. Also eye-catching are the standard-fit 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with high-gloss black finish (size: 45.7 cm/18 inch).
The special model is based on the AMG Line, which as standard includes AMG Styling bumpers at the front and rear, a sport suspension with 10 mm lowering (de-selectable) as well as a larger braking system with perforated brake discs and front callipers sporting the “Mercedes-Benz” logotype.
Two-tone nappa leather in black/silver pearl with alpaca grey topstitching: this striking colour combination characterises the interior and can be found on the standard-fit sport seats, the door trim and the door centre panels, among other areas. The alpaca grey seat belts echo the colour of the topstitching. Carbon-fibre look leather inserts in the head restraints and the upper section of the seatbacks round off the exquisite interior design of the SLC Final Edition.
The head restraints and the selector lever of the automatic transmission are covered with carbon leather and bear silver SLC lettering. The trim elements on the instrument panel and the centre console sport a bright aluminium finish. The standard-fit multifunction sport steering wheel combines carbon leather in the upper and lower segment with smooth nappa leather in the grip area. Sporty details of the steering wheel are the flat bottom, the 3-spoke design and the silver paddle shifters.
