Mercedes-Benz SLK Edition 10

The "Edition 10" Mercedes-Benz SLK marked ten years of the SLK-Class. This special model is distinguished by a unique paint finish and choice of interior materials.

With the new-style, matt grey metallic paint finish "allanite grey Magno", Mercedes designers are illustrating a trend for future color schemes. This finish is available for a limited edition of 350 vehicles. This exclusive matt finish is available as an option in addition to obsidian black metallic and iridium silver metallic. The standard finish for the special model is black.

Other highlights of the "Edition 10" include light-alloy wheels painted in dark-grey, high-gloss "chrome-shadow", which are additionally enhanced with black/silver emblems bearing the Mercedes star. These ten-spoke designer wheels are shod with wide-base tires in size 225/45 R 17 (front) and 245/40 R 17 (rear). Dark-tinted rear lights and engraved insignia bearing the lettering "EditI0n" on the wings also distinguish the special sports car model.

In the interior the two occupants are treated to a selection of fine materials. The seats, centre console armrest and gearshift lever are covered in black leather, with both seat backrests bearing the "EditI0n" logo. The centre panels of the seat cushions and backrests feature a silver-colored under layer which discreetly yet strikingly brings the perforated leather to the fore.

This sporty, elegant black/silver contrast is accentuated by the silver-threaded topstitching of the SLK's sports seats. The liner of the vario-roof and the inner surrounds of the rear window are in black. In addition to leather upholstery and 17-inch light-alloy wheels, the standard equipment of the special model includes heated seats and velour floor mats with black edging and an embroidered "EditI0n" logo.

Another special feature is the innovative, matt-painted metallic mesh that embellishes the area above the glove compartment, while Mercedes designers have chosen two black trim strips for the driver's side. The speedometer and rev counter feature red scales to emphasise the sporty character of the SLK Class.
