Mercedes-Benz didn’t stop their spring edition drop tops with the CarbonLOOK SLK, they’re releasing a Mercedes SL 2LOOK Edition. Particularly eye catching is the combination of a light-colored paint finish, such as designo magno cashmere white, designo diamond white bright, tenorite grey or iridium silver, with a vario-roof in high-gloss black. If you’re looking for something more discreet, you can also choose a roof that matches the body color, but what fun would that be. The spectrum of alternative colors for the special model comprises black, obsidian black and magnetite black. Further highlights are the high-sheen 48.3 cm (19-inch) multi-spoke light-alloy wheels or the optionally available 48.3 cm (19-inch) AMG 7-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in high-gloss black and featuring a high-sheen finish.
The fascinating interplay of light and dark is continued in the interior. The striking seats featuring a sporty longitudinal piping design in black nappa leather contrast with inserts in designo nappa leather in platinum white pearl. The side sections of the door armrests and the centre armrest also feature contrasting designo platinum white pearl. The two-tone design is also in evidence on the designo steering wheel and the AMG floor mat with AMG lettering and edging in designo platinum white pearl. There is also designo trim in black piano lacquer to underscore the special model’s exclusive look. Outstanding roadster comfort is ensured by a range of standard-fit features comprising the Active Multicontour Seat package, climatised seats and AIRSCARF neck-level heating for driver and front passenger, which makes open-top trips a pure joy even in cooler temperatures.
