There’s no better way of screaming “Please buy me!” when some manufacturer prepares special editions. This time it’s Mercedes-Benz that will offer something special to try and attract more buyers their way. While most vehicles in the Mercedes lineup will either receive many exterior and interior updates the SLC-class will receive a red touch. We can see what’s going on here just by reading the name, 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class RedArt Edition.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class – Red Accents
Well, it starts and it is an ordinary SLC roadster. Designers painted this model in Selenite Grey Metallic and then added Gloss Red accents. We can find them on below the front spoiler, on the edges of the outline of air intakes, side fins, and rear diffuser. Behind 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, we can also see a hint of red, the brake calipers are painted in that color. On the inside, the same story. Germans equipped the SLC RedArt Edition with Nappa leather upholstery with, of course, contrast red stitching. The buyer can choose between completely red seats or two-tone black and red leather seats. We can also find this color on door panels. Other than that, there is the same now already outdated interior.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class – Same Engine
This special edition, unfortunately, doesn’t bring anything new under the hood. We have the same 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine which produces 241 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. Maybe one of the reasons why this model doesn’t attract more buyers lies in the fact that this roadster only comes with the nine-automatic transmission. No, we don’t need less or more gears. What we really need is to do something with the left leg and right hand. Driving a manual is probably the best way to truly experience the all driving pleasures while the wind goes through hair. For us, at least, it is a sports car, is it not?
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class – Release Date
Nevertheless, this convertible will be available this summer. The number on the price tag isn’t yet revealed, but it won’t go too much higher from currents $48.875. Oh, and 2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC43 will come with RedArt Edition too.
