Dressed in Polar White, the special edition features a Magic Sky Control panoramic roof and an AMG sport package which includes a new front bumper, revised side skirts and a modified rear fascia. The package also adds AMG-branded brake calipers and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Interior changes are relatively limited but the model comes nicely equipped with Bengal Red Nappa leather seats and "solar red" ambient lighting.

Like the standard model, the SLK 200 Radar Safety Edition has a turbocharged 1.8-liter that produces 184 HP (135 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque.
Production will be limited to 100 units and pricing starts at ¥6,330,000 ($65,185 / €47,960).
