First impressions matter, thus, the Special EDITION comes standard with an eye-catching roof box from the AMG range, guaranteeing its undeniable presence on the road whilst offering practical storage space for added comfort. Complete with the V-Class luxury interior design, the Special EDITION has all the creature comforts one would expect - from automatic doors to leather-clad seats and the iconic Mercedes-Benz diamond grill - as well as an array of additional features that are essential to a life of luxury.

Built upon the iconic V300d, the Special EDITION is powered by a revving four-cylinder OM 654 engine that exemplifies effortless power, refined elegance and a truly remarkable driving experience.
