Also included are standard 19-inch front and 20-inch rear 10-spoke forged alloy wheels in a combination of black and silver as well a sports suspension that lowered the ride height of the upmarket roadster by 10mm. The trim elements on the instrument panel and the center console sport a bright aluminum finish.

Available overseas in four engine guises (SLC 180, SLC 200, SLC 300 and SLC 43 AMG), the edition will also be available with a particularly bright Sun Yellow exterior paint option, which is a nostalgic nod to the official "Yellowstone" launch colour of the original SLK of 1996 - and back then that colour was quite bold by Mercedes standards. The standard-fit multifunction sport steering wheel combines carbon leather in the upper and lower segment with smooth nappa leather in the grip area. There is a unique model designation stitched into the headrest, and there is a brown and black sports steering wheel as standard as well. They also come equipped with otherwise optional features such as memory seats and the Airscarf feature that blows warm air on the driver's and passengers' necks. The second generation of the model arrived in 2004 The SLK also marked the start of a new era for the traditional Mercedes-Benz brand, and its roof design served as a model for many other open-top vehicles.

Like the SLC, the current-generation Mercedes-Benz SL is nearing the end of its lifecycle. A resounding success: the model series has a worldwide community of fans, with sales of over 710,000 units since 1996.
