Mercedes-Benz has revealed a Final Edition of the SLC roadster with unique features and trims to celebrate the end of the current-generation SLC. 

Available on all models in the SLC range - SLC200, SLC300 and AMG SLC43 - the Final Edition package gives the car a more sporting look. Two visual specifications of the non-AMG SLC are available to choose from - a silver chrome detail look for darker colours, and a black trim finish for lighter hues.

An SLC Final Edition badge features on the front wings, as well as 18-inch five-spoke AMG wheels, a 10mm reduction in ride height and a larger braking system is also standard equipment. 

The Final Edition adds more luxurious touches to the interior of the SLC, with two-tone nappa leather in black and silver, as well as grey stitching and seatbelts to set the car apart from regular SLC models. Carbon fibre-look leather features on the head restraints, as well as the upper section of the seatbacks, gearknob and steering wheel. 

In addition to that, black floor mats with embroidered stitching, the company’s Airscarf neck heating, seat heating, memory functionality for the seats, steering column and mirrors, as well as four-way lumbar adjustment for both seats are standard on the Final Edition. 

The Mercedes-AMG SLC43 Final Edition follows the same styling path as its non-AMG siblings. Featuring an exclusive "Sun Yellow" paint finish and high-gloss black elements, the SLC43 rides on 18-inch alloy wheels with a yellow rim, and has the same two-tone nappa leather upholstery, carbon fibre trim elements and extra standard equipment as other SLC Final Edition models. 

The Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition has been confirmed for Australian sales in the second quarter of 2019, with local spokesperson Ryan Lewis informing CarsGuide that it is a fitting farewell for the third generation. 

"It will be available in Australia, with the first cars expected in the second quarter of this year," said Mr Lewis.

While the SLC (formerly SLK until a name change to fit the company's newest naming conventions) was popular globally upon its release in 1998, its 2018 Australian sales dropped to just 167 units, down by 42.7 percent on 2017.
