Launched! More Middle Eastern exclusive limited editions… this time from Mercedes

Is the world truly suffering from the economic crash? Well on the outside, it seems that the Western world’s view on the Middle East’s position is different than what we see and feel here. If 3 Bugatti limited edition models weren’t enough to launch at the Dubai International Motor Show, then here are a few more. This time they’re from Mercedes.

SLS  AMG Desert Gold

It’s no secret that many people in this region enjoy covering their exotics in the rare gold trim. Well now we have this special golden paint job being created just for us. Cheesy? Not quite. I actually like the fact that it has a matte finish.

The SLS performance figures remain the same, however, the gold matte paint combined with the exterior matte black trim, black AMG light-alloy rims, and black interior with carbon fiber are unique to this model.

G55 AMG Kompressor “Edition 79” Special

Why the name? The G-wagon first was sold in 1979, so to honor this timeless piece of Mercedes history, it was only fitting to create a special limited edition (only 70 will be built) for the Middle East, one of the model’s largest markets. What’s special? The “Designo Magno Alanite Gray” matte paint job (also used on the new SLS), carbon fiber exterior and interior trim, two-tone Designo leather and a plaque which states the car’s serial number out of 70.

    “limited edition” seems tp be the latest gimmick! desperate times? coupled with gullible customers, perhaps 😉

    I’m not a fan of the G, I feel that its too block like but I can understand how people love it.. but did they have to choose such a tacky color for the SLS!

    6are8: possibly… and who better than us lol

    Marzouq: I think that color would grow on me… can’t believe I’m admitting to it but the matte finish with the black work together.
