The Mercedes SLC Final Edition Says Goodbye To The Roadster Once Known As SLK

Mercedes-Benz will show two special-edition roadsters at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next month and each will likely signal the end of the line for their model lines. The special edition two-seat roadster will make its debut at the upcoming Geneva motor show next month, almost 23 years after the model first made an appearance in global markets as the SLK. The Mercedes-Benz SLC started life as the SLK before the brand's nomenclature changed the moniker in 2016.

Pricing for the model is 41,536.95 EUR for the SLC 180, 46,534.95 EUR for the SLC 200, 52,633.70 EUR for the SLC 300 and 65,045.40 for the AMG SLC 43. The current generation of the auto codenamed R172 has been on sale globally since 2011.

The Final Edition of the AMG SLC 43 emphasizes the racy appearance of the performance roadster with the exclusive Sun Yellow paint finish and a host of high-gloss black elements, among other features. The 2020 Mercedes- Benz and Mercedes-AMG SLC Final Edition will arrive in US dealerships in 2020.

The French legend is keen to talk seriously about taking over as boss and turn the Blues into contenders again at home and overseas with a £200m transfer kitty.

All Grand Edition models will ship standard with the Daimler-backed brand's signature Airscarf neck-level heating system, a sports suspension system (firmer than standard and lowered by an additional 10 mm), active multi-contour seats (with massage and dynamic handling functions), seat climate control, the German automaker's driving assistance plus package and active parking assist. The same gloss-black exterior trim carries over from the SLC300, and the finish is also extended to the front splitter, intake fins, fender strakes, and portions of the rear fascia. To distinguish it from the regular version, the cars will get black and chrome trim bits on the outside along with five-spoke 18-inch AMG wheels.

Inside the open-roof cabin sits attractive black leather seats with silver pearl leather accents and gray top stitching to tie it all together. The standard-fit multifunction sport steering wheel combines carbon leather in the upper and lower segment with smooth nappa leather in the grip area. The AMG also has 18-inch matte-black wheels with a yellow rim. Here it makes 362 hp and pushes the auto from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds.

The Mercedes-Benz SLC has survived three generations since it first arrived in 1996, and the company has sold over 7.1 lakh units of the popular convertible that is based on the C-Class platform.
