In Japan, where limited-edition special models seemingly outnumber the "regular" versions of the cars they're based on, Mercedes has just announced the availability of the CLS 350 AMG Sports Edition. No power upgrades here, this one's a pure appearance / trim package in the vein of the "Key to the Cure" E 350 available here in the States.

Japanese buyers can scoop up the AMG-ified CLS in any color they desire as long as it's Obsidian Black. More leeway is offered inside, where beige or black nappa leather can be selected, each with a specific wood trim. Paddle shifters take up residence on the steering wheel, and the driver is surrounded by blue tinted glass. A power glass sunroof is also included.

On the outside, the car receives AMG's fascia, skirts, and a set of very attractive multispoke wheels like the ones seen on the SL 55 AMG from a few years ago.

The CLS 350 AMG Sports Edition is limited to 350 examples -- 100 of which will be in the desirable left-hand-drive configuration, which is seen as being more exclusive in Japan. Exclusivity is paramount, and in Japan it makes special models like this worth the extra price of admission. In this case, that amount is ?9,400,000 ($80K+ USD).
