Mercedes-Benz has launched limited editions of the GLE 43 AMG and the SLC 43 AMG called ‘OrangeArt’ and ‘RedArt’. While the GLE 43 will cost you Rs 1.02 crore, the SLC 43 gets a price tag of Rs 87.48 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom India).

Wait, the cars in the picture looks standard to us, what’s wrong? Well, take a look at the image again and you’ll find orange and red highlights on the front diffuser and on the rim flange. Along with these, the GLE 43 gets full LED ‘intelligent’ headlamps with black rings, 21-inch alloy wheels and AMG lettering on the floor mats. Except for the 18-inch alloy wheels, red accents in the interior and a grey paint finish, the SLC 43 AMG gets almost the same design updates as the GLE 43 Coupe.

Both the cars use the same 3.0-litre, bi-turbo V6 motor which produces 361bhp and 520Nm of torque. The German carmaker claims that the GLE will take 5.6s to reach 100kph from a standstill and the SLC will take 4.7s for the same.
