The Japanese market has received lots of special attention from tuners in the past few months. After BMW launched a bunch of special-edition models, like the BMW M5 Nighthawk Edition , Mercedes decided it was its turn to develop some special models for Japan.
The first model it released was a rather boring B180 Northern Lights Black Special Edition , but now the maker wanted to make up for this lackluster model and came up with something pretty cool: this GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition.
The special model got its name from the German word for black, so it is pretty easy to imagine what the the dominant color is. The Schwarz Edition is painted in Obsidian Black, and features stainless-steel running boards and 20-inch wheels. AMG also tossed in a pretty cool styling package a new new sports suspension.
For the interior, the new GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition adds seats wrapped in a combination of Artico and Dinamica leather, a sport steering wheel, black ash wood trim and alloy pedals.
The new Mercedes GLK 350 4MATIC Schwarz Edition is limited to only 100 units and is priced at ¥6,840,000 or a little under $70k.

GLK 350 is the most powerful model in the GLK-Class lineup. It is powered by a 3.5-liter direct-injection V-6 gasoline engine that delivers a total of 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque from 3,500 to 5,250 rpm. The engine mates to a seven-speed automatic transmission and sends its power to all four wheels via a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
The GLK also features with an ECO stop/start system for even better fuel economy, particularly in city and suburban driving conditions.
On the U.S. market, the GLK 350 is priced from $37,480.
