Mercedes-Benz bids farewell to the R172 SLC with Final Edition


When the Mercedes-Benz SLK first appeared back in 1996, it was premiered with the “yellowstone” colour, an unconventional choice for Mercedez-Benz then but more than 20 years later, the brand is reminiscing the event with the introduction of the “sun yellow”, on the Final Edition of the SLC.

The Final Edition will be available in four different variants – SLC 180, SLC 200, SLC 300, SLC 43 AMG. Engine options range from 1.6-litre for the SLC 180, 2.0-litre for the SLC 200 and SLC 300 and V6 for the SLC 43 AMG.

The Final Edition’s attire is essentially based on the AMG Line with AMG-styled front and rear bumpers, lowered suspension (10mm) and larger brakes tucked behind 18-inch 5-spoke AMG light alloy wheels.

This is complemented by the Final Edition’s very own special touches that include SLC Final Edition badges on the front fenders and Final Edition embroidery on the floor mats.

As for the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43, it stands out with matte black 5-spoke AMG light alloy wheels and an “AMG Edition” badge on the steering wheel that features a grey 12 o’clock marker.

The SLC Final Edition will be available next month for a starting price of 41,536.95 Euros (approx RM191k).

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
