SLC and AMG SLC43 RedArt Editions

"Springtime will bring two exclusive models to the Mercedes-Benz lineup. SLC and AMG SLC 43 RedArt Editions add a special touch to compact roadster with design upgrades both on the exterior and in the interior, while the larger roadster will get an SL designo Edition with interior-only design upgrades. As the name suggests, red color is the dominant in those additions. Below is the press release from Mercedes-Benz:" Ed.

Whether with an entry-level engine, diesel drive or as a Mercedes-AMG top-of-the-line model: the SLC can be ordered with any of the five engine line-ups as a particularly dynamic RedArt Edition. The four-cylinder SLC 180*, SLC 200*, SLC 250 d* and SLC 300* models are available in an exclusive designo iridium silver magno matt finish. Alternatively, customers can choose from six other colours. Its exciting design and striking details make the RedArt Edition particularly sporty, something that is underlined by the red colour highlights on the exterior and in the interior. The red front splitter, the diamond radiator grille with pins in red and black, red fins in the wings with an exclusive Edition badge and the diffuser with red trim lend the SLC RedArt Edition an eye-catching look. A harmonious contrast is provided for by the striking 45.7 cm (18-inch) 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in tremolite metallic with a high-sheen finish. The performance of the SLC is further enhanced by the large, perforated brake discs and red brake callipers with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering at the front.

In the AMG Line, the RedArt Edition special model is equipped with 45.7 cm (18-inch) AMG 5-spoke light-alloy wheels, AMG front and rear apron, sports suspension, sports exhaust system (SLC 200 only), instrument cluster with a chequered flag design as well as AMG floor mats.
