Mercedes SLK 200 Radar Safety Edition

Mercedes has always been a respectable brand in the auto field. Its top position is clear to everybody, including to the rival companies which try to do their best to keep up with it. Mercedes- Benz is a name that can very easily surprise car lovers. And it seems the Japanese pretty much like German surprises. They received very well models like the C63 AMG and the C- Class. And now it’s time for the German company to launch the Mercedes SLK 200 Radar Safety Edition for the Asian public.

The Mercedes SLK 200 Radar Safety Edition comes as a limited edition, with only 100 units planned. The supercar is all covered in Polar White and it has a Magic Sky Control panoramic roof. The specialists at Mercedes fit it with an AMG sport package which contains a new front bumper, revised side skirts and an updated front fascia. The car sits on a set of 18 inch alloy wheels stopped by some AMG-branded brakes.

On the inside of the SLK 200 Radar Safety Edition Mercedes hasn’t made too many changes. It features Bengal Red Nappa leather seats and solar red ambient lights. But the remarkable thing about the model is that it has been equipped with Radar Safety Package which adds Distronic Plus, Brake Assist Plus, Blind Spot Assist, and Lane Keeping Assist. This is very clearly stated by the name that the special edition has received. The vehicle is powered by a 1.8-liter that produces 184 HP (135 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. It is the same engine configuration that powers the standard model. The Japanese will have to pay at least ¥6,330,000 ($65,185 / €47,960) to get their hands on one of the 100 units.
