Available now, the Special Edition features new five-spoke 17-inch alloys, aluminium roof rails, a silver-finished radiator grille, and the ML 55 AMG’s bonnet, which features two ‘powerdomes’ to give a sporty look. For the first time, Cubanite Silver paint is available as an exclusive finish for the M-Class Special Edition, although any of the M-Class metallic paints can be chosen at no extra cost. Tinted rear lights and chrome-trimmed door handles detail this Special Edition and add to the exclusive appeal.
On the inside the Special Edition has a leather steering wheel and gear selector, electronically-adjustable sports leather and Alcantara seats. The instruments are detailed with white needles and chrome surrounds. To complete the look, velour floor mats are finished with a ‘Special Edition’ logo to match those on the front doors.
Although electrically-adjustable sports seats are fitted as standard on the Special Edition, the addition of the Comfort Pack at £780, will add heated and memory-equipped seats and an automatically dimming rear view mirror to the well equipped interior. The Comfort Pack is standard on the ML 500.
The M-Class Special Edition option is available to order now across the M-Class range, from the entry level ML 270 CDI to the ML 500 V8.
As with every M-Class, the Special Edition is equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Programme), BAS (Brake Assist) and EBV (Electronic Brake Force Distribution), ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). Front sidebags, windowbags and dual-stage front airbags are also fitted as standard.
The ML 270 CDI is priced at £33,915; ML 350 £36,330 and ML 500 £46,290 on-the-road.
