designo range to meet all requirements
Designed to meet the needs of those with more individual tastes are the optional appointments "designo leather" and "designo Exclusive leather", offering eleven single-tone and ten two-tone upholstery variants. In the case of designo Exclusive leather, not only are the AMG sports seats, door centre panels, door armrests, centre console and handrest finished in designo leather, but the upper part of the dashboard and door beltlines also come in black nappa leather. Both variants also include designo velour floor mats as well as a selector lever in black nappa leather and colour-coordinated double stitching on the leather upholstery. Available matching elements include designo trim in "AMG carbon fibre" and "black piano lacquer" for the centre console. The windscreen frame in designo Alcantara® anthracite, seat belts in silver or red and also five attractive designo paint finishes – including two matt paint finishes – round off the stylish appearance perfectly.
For those with very special tastes: the SLK 55 AMG "Edition 1"
Similar to the C 63 AMG Coupé and CLS 63 AMG, a particularly appealing complete package is also available in the guise of the SLK 55 AMG "Edition 1". This model variant features a whole host of specially designed high-quality exterior and interior details. There are three different paint finishes to choose from: designo magno cashmere white, diamond white metallic BRIGHT and obsidian black metallic. To add that perfect touch to the overall appearance there are also multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels painted in matt black with a high-gloss finish on the rim flange.
To match the exterior design, the interior of the Edition 1 is available exclusively in two-tone "designo Exclusive leather" in platinum white pearl. The windscreen frame in Alcantara®, AMG carbon-fibre trim, the AMG Performance steering wheel with Alcantara® inserts in the grip areas as well as white illuminated AMG door sill panels all help to create some attractive contrasts. Further visual highlights include platinum white contrasting stitching for the upper part of the dashboard, the door beltlines, the AMG Performance steering wheel and the shift lever gaiter, as well as a roll-over bar finished in designo platinum white pearl leather.
