First Look: 2011 Mercedes-Benz SL550 Night Edition

Looking for that ultimate "life noir" experience -- or just an ultimate Oakland Raiders fan? Either way, Mercedes thinks it may have come up with the vehicle of your well-heeled dreams. Available later this quarter in a limited run of 100, the new 2011 SL550 Night Edition is set to add its own distinctive dark-side appeal with unique cosmetics, highlighted by its special designo magno night black paint. Other exterior touches on the SL550 Night Edition include dark-tint headlamp/taillight lenses, silver-painted front brake calipers and 19-inch AMG five-spoke alloy wheels done in a two-tone high-gloss finish.

Inside, the SL550 Night Edition sets its dark Black premium leather upholstery off with a selection of bright chrome details and boasts custom seats that feature arrow-shaped sew seams and silver-colored contrasting accents. Mercedes had no word on pricing, although given that the standard SL550 opens at just over $100,000, this volume-restricted exercise in ebony overkill seems likely to command at least another $10K premium.
