The SLC started its career as SLK Class sometime in 1996, in an unusual launch colour called yellowstone. In reminiscence of this world premiere, the SLC Final Edition will be available in an exclusive sun yellow paint finish.
The special model is based on the AMG Line, which as standard includes AMG bumpers front and rear, a sport suspension with 10 mm lowering (de-selectable), and larger braking system with perforated discs and front calipers sporting Mercedes-Benz logotype. Besides the aforementioned sun yellow paint finish, the Final Edition gets a host of high-gloss black elements. These include front splitter, fins of the air intakes, trim element in the rear fascia, mirror caps, and door handles. The 18-inch matte black 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with yellow rim flange round off the looks.
Interiors get sport seats in two-tone nappa leather (black/silver pearl) with alpaca grey contrast stitching, carbon fibre like leather inserts in the head restraints, multifunction sport steering wheel with carbon like leather inserts, black floor mats with embroidered logo, Airscarf neck-level heating, seat heating, and the Memory package for the seats, steering column and exterior mirrors. The package also includes 4-way lumbar support for driver and front passenger.
