New special edition Mercedes SLK

Mercedes has launched a new special-edition SLK, which has unique colour options and a high standard of kit.

The SLK 2Look is based on the 200 Kompressor model and uses the same 1.8-litre supercharged petrol engine, but is available with only special white or black paintwork.

Other exterior changes include 18-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, with a choice of 'titanium silver' or 'chrome shadow' finishes. There are also black surrounds for the headlamps and badges on the front wings.

The interior has bespoke white and black leather upholstery with contrasting stitching, black roof lining and white dashboard trim, along with black floor mats with white edging.

Mercedes' Airscarf neck level heating system which normally costs £343 as an option is fitted as standard. Heated seats and a wind deflector are also included.

Only 150 cars will be available in the UK and with prices starting at £31,235 for the six-speed manual version - a £1790 premium over the standard 200 Kompressor model. Opting for a five-speed automatic gearbox costs an extra £1458.
