So Long Mercedes-Benz SLC And SLK, It Was Nice Knowing Ya

This is the Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition currently displayed at the Geneva Motor Show. As its name suggests, it’s been designed to send out the car manufacturer’s much-loved convertible sports car.

Those looking to pick up an SLC Final Edition have a number of different variants to choose from. In Europe, for example, Mercedes-Benz will sell you an SLC 180 Final Edition with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder delivering 154 hp and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque. An SLC 200 with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder offering up 181 hp and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) is also available.

While the aforementioned SLC 180 Final Edition and SLC 200 Final Edition models are restricted to Europe, both the U.S. and the Old Continent also have SLC 300 Final Edition and SLC 43 Final Edition models available. The first of those has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 241 hp and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm) while the range-topping SLC 43 has a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 churning out 385 hp and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque.

The model currently on display at Geneva is an SLC 300 Final Edition painted in Sun Yellow as a tribute to the SLK’s original Yellowstone launch color.

No matter which powertrain customers opt for, all Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition models include two-tone Nappa leather sports seats, grey seat belts, and a number of ‘carbon leather’ accents. Mercedes has also fitted aluminum trim, bespoke floor mats, ‘Final Edition’ badging and its Airscarf neck-level heating system.

Mercedes-Benz will commence deliveries of the SLC Final Edition models this month. German pricing ranges from €41,536.95 ($46,956) for the SLC 180 and tops out at €65,045.40 ($73,531) for the SLC 43 Final Edition.
