Mercedes Benz is targeting a slightly younger audience with its new 2LOOK Edition SLK series. It is available only in white/black with matching interiors. This special edition costs approx 2,100 Euros over the normal SLK and we feel that this is well worth the extra bucks for the equipment and trim changes.
Err..did we mention the special paint finishes cost an additional 580 euros for obsidian black metallic and 1,990 euros for the limited edition in designo mystic white?

|At the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz is presenting a new, eye-catching special model in the successful SLK series with the model suffix “2LOOK Edition”. This new model variant, which is specifically aimed at a younger target group, is only available in glossy black or lustrous white. This styling touch is harmoniously complemented by a two-tone interior with high-grade materials in dramatic black-and-white contrasts.
The attraction of opposites – this is the concept with which the new Mercedes-Benz SLK “2LOOK Edition” special model will enter the new open-top season. The intentional limitation to a black-and-white colour scheme both inside and out lends this successful two-seater with a vario-roof an exclusive, dramatic appearance and ensures a decidedly eye-catching presence.
The SLK 2LOOKEdition is painted in a choice of either calcite white or black as standard. On request the SLK 2LOOKEdition is also available in exclusive obsidian black metallic or the special finish designo mystic white, which is limited to 300 vehicles worldwide. Headlamps with black surrounds send an additional stylish message, ensuring that the SLK 2LOOKEdition is easily recognisable from a distance.
The sporty and striking appearance of the special model is emphasised by 18?inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels with mixed tyre sizes (front: 225/40 R18, rear: 245/35 R18). In line with the colour philosophy of the 2LOOKEdition, these are available in two surface variants: a lustrous high-sheen finish in titanium silver or dark, striking chrome shadow. Discreet emblems on the wings and a draught-stop of transparent acrylic glass from the range of high-quality Mercedes accessories bearing the 2LOOKEdition logo also distinguish the special model.
Attractive antithesis – interior in black and white
A contrasting black-and-white colour scheme also characterises the interior of the new SLK 2LOOK Edition. The sports seats are upholstered in nappa leather – with the seat centre panels in white and the contoured bolsters in black. The doors and centre armrest are also in a contrasting black-and-white scheme in high-grade leather. Eye-catching, carefully finished decorative seams on all leather surfaces accentuate the dramatic character of this special edition.
Black-and-white features throughout the vehicle underline its dynamic potential: the multifunction steering wheel in black nappa leather with a white decorative seam, the white-painted trim in the black dashboard and – when the roof is closed – the black roof lining. The white-edged floor mats have an embroidered Edition label.
The SLK 2LOOKEdition can be ordered with immediate effect in the engine variants SLK 200 KOMPRESSOR, SLK 300 and SLK 350 Sports Engine. The extra cost of this special model is 2100 euros. The special paint finishes cost an additional 580 euros for obsidian black metallic and 1990 euros for the limited edition in designo mystic white (German list prices incl. VAT).
