The Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition is the swan song of one the world’s most exciting roadsters. It saw the light of day in 1996 and it was the company’s first with vario-roof. It was then called SLK.

The SLK hit the road in Yellowstone, very unusual for a sober carmaker. The Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition receives the same paint finish more than two decades later. All four engines are available for the last unicorn roadster, with prices starting at 41,536.95 Euros, VAT included.

Customers can choose a standard black, obsidian black or selenite grey as well, but also an AMG Styling front bumper with trim strips in silver chrome. It forms out an exciting contrast with the sun yellow, polar white and diamond white paintworks available. Meanwhile, door handles, mirrors and rear brace sport a high-gloss black finish in combination with the bright exterior colors.

All models bear the SLC Final Edition insignia on the front wings, below the chromed fin. The car runs on standard-fit 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels with high-gloss black finish.

The standard AMG Line base brings AMG Styling bumpers at the front and rear, a sport suspension with 10 mm lowering (de-selectable) and a larger braking system with perforated brake discs and front callipers sporting the “Mercedes-Benz” logotype.

A two-tone nappa leather in black/silver pearl with alpaca grey topstitching, carbon-fiber 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 make up the sporty cabin of the car. The head restraints and the selector lever of the automatic transmission are covered with carbon leather and bear silver SLC lettering. A bright aluminum finish shows up on the instrument panel and the center console. The steering wheel sports a flat bottom section and silver paddle shifters.
