To be honest, it looks like a regular run-of-the-mill R171 SLK to me. Nothing "special", visually that is. I also don't like those rims.

The interior changes make it apparent that this isn't a regular SLK, but the exterior is plain-Jane R171 except for the darkened rear lights. That "Edition" print must also be very small because I can't find it! ;)
