Open-air driving pleasure of a very special kind is also provided by the Final Edition of the successful SLK Roadster, which Mercedes-Benz is also presenting to the public in Geneva.
Equipped with a vario-roof, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Brake Assist, sidebags and the other technical highlights of the SLK-Class, the use of high-quality trim and the finest materials makes this special model particularly eye-catching. The radiator grille is painted in a chrome-silver metallic finish, working in conjunction with the highly polished aluminium trim strips on the A-pillars and vario-roof to characterise the exclusive appearance of the Roadster. 16-inch light-alloy wheels in a five spin-spoke design accentuate the car’s sporty presence.
The interior of the Final Edition cossets the SLK’s occupants with newly designed sports seats upholstered in soft nappa leather in a choice of black or classic red. The same high-quality, natural material is also used to line the central areas of the door panels and the roll-over bars. For the centre console, shift gate and door handle surrounds the Mercedes designers have developed decorative trim of highly-polished, brushed aluminium. The instrument cluster is distin-guished from that in the standard SLK-Class Roadster by silver print on the dials and metal-coloured adjusting knobs for the clock and trip recorder. The Final Edition of the SLK-Class will be available from March 2003.
