Every car has its own purpose, and according to Mercedes-Benz, its new SL Night Edition and SLK Grand Edition are “masterpieces to dream of.”
Regardless of whether you opt for the Night or the Grand, both packages largely serve as dress-up kits for the Benz roadsters. Appropriately, the SL Night Edition sports matte-finish black paint, along with smoked headlamp and taillight assemblies. The dark paint is contrasted by 19-inch AMG alloy wheels, along with silver-painted brake calipers.
Inside, the SL Night Edition receives black premium nappa leather wrapped around almost every surface. The steering wheel, shift knob, seats, and even the roof lining are trimmed in the material. The seats themselves are a new design, and feature contrasting silver stitching, which compliments the chrome trim.
<;p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0.1pt 0in;">The SLK Grand Edition wears an exclusive graphite paint color, and also receives tinted lights like those found on the SL night Edition. Unlike the SL, however, the Grand Edition receives bespoke 18-inch wheels, which sport a "triple-five" spoke pattern. A two-tone pearl-on-grey theme dominates the cabin, and can be found on the seats, seatbelts, and door panels.
<;p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0.1pt 0in;">The SLK Grand Edition isn't headed stateside, but the Night Edition -- as an SL550 with the 5.5-liter V-8 -- should arrive at dealers later this year.
