Mercedes, a fan of tradition, chose to honor the SLK by painting the Final Edition in handsome Sun Yellow, a tribute to signify that its star is burning brightest right before its end. This is how Mercedes' tribute begins, as yellowstone was the very unlikely color of choice the SLK was launched in decades ago. The final edition model of the SLC300 and the AMG SLC43 will arrive in United States dealerships in 2020. The Grand Edition will be offered in Graphite Grey and features a mix of chrome and matte aluminum-finish metals. The roadsters are equipped with exclusive AMG forged 10-spoke two-tone wheels including 19-inch rims up front and 20 inches for the back. This material has also been applied to the sports steering wheel, along with perforated black nappa leather.

The head restraints and the selector lever of the automatic transmission are covered with carbon leather and bear silver SLC lettering. Both of these SLCs will be offered with the sendoff package in the United States, with the SLC300 Final Edition coming in Selenite Gray and the SLC43 coming in the Sun Yellow color you see here (pictured on a Euro-spec SLC300). For the first time, Mercedes-Benz had produced a roadster whose vario-roof redefined the roadster segment by combining open-air driving pleasure with uncompromised comfort in poor weather that had never been available before.

Full details on the features of the Final Edition can be found in the document attached below. Mechanically, the only change is the fitment of the Sport suspension options, which lowers the vehicle by 0.4 inch.

Spec your auto in a lighter colour (sun yellow, polar white or diamond white) and you'll also get black accents on the front spoiler, wing mirrors, door handles and rear diffuser, while SLC Final Edition badges on the front fenders complete the look. These include: the front splitter, the fins of the air intakes and the fenders, the base of the centrally positioned star, trim elements in the rear fascia, the side mirror caps and door handles. A resounding success: the model series has a worldwide community of fans, with sales of over 710,000 units since 1996.
