Mercedes-Benz has chosen to honor the 50th anniversary of its iconic 300SL Roadster with a 50th Anniversary Edition SL550. eMercedesBenz caught the news on MB's U.S. website, which lists the collector's car with a Pewter metallic paint job, cognac brown leather interior with Black Ash wood trim, custom 18-inch aluminum twin-spoke wheels and a rear shelf bag replete with an Anniversary Edition tag. Everything else looks stock SL550, which is to say it's pretty sweet. Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect it to be similarly spectacular.

Check out the listing on MB's website here or follow the jump for official pics of that delicious cognac interior.

      I don't know how there's no pricing on it. I have one sitting here right infront of my office. It's $102,375 and comes with special edition badging, floormats, and a set of luggage designed specifically for the car.

      I really should have been the 50th Anniversary Edition AMG SL65. You're right about the cognac.

      Aw man, that was tempting! I was looking at the shot of the interior from the side, wondering, is that a stick? Then I scrolled back up and read the caption for the first picture after the blurb.

      Delectable, indeed. The old SL was a magnificent car. This latest roadster comes the closest of any contemporary SL to matching the original's presence.

      Why, why, why is it that it takes a special edition of ANY luxury car to get a beautiful interior color like that?

      Seems like somewhere the automakers all entered into a treaty providing that all automobiles are to have interiors in one of three colors: black, gray, or snot.

      Why, why, why?

      I'm sure it's arractive in person, but the first shot looks overwrought like a pre-2006 Pontiac. I think it's just a business due to the overly dark shadows across the hood and whatnot.
