The special designo magno night black paint finish -- specially developed exclusively for the SL550 Night Edition -- works particularly well with the dramatic design of the SL-Class. The Night Edition rolls on 19-inch AMG five-spoke light-alloy wheels in a two-tone, high-gloss finish, silver-painted front brake calipers with "Mercedes-Benz" script and darkened headlamps/tail lights help distinguish the exclusive status of the SL550 Night Edition.

The interior features a striking contrast of dark Black premium leather and bright chrome trim, with numerous fine details. The newly-designed seats have arrow-shaped seams and silver-colored contrasting features, while the sports steering wheel, shift lever and roof lining are trimmed in black. The trim strip of the wind-deflector has a high-gloss finish complimented by the silver-colored vents of the AIRSCARF® system, which bathes the driver in warm air when the convertible top is down during cooler weather.
