Mercedes-Benz is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of their victorious 300 SL in the Mille Miglia in 1955. Named after the race number of the SL, the Mille Miglia 417 Edition will feature special hits of red on the front lip spoiler and red trim on the car's rear spoiler. The wheels will also get red surrounds that wrap the black AMG wheels that also give you a peek at the car's red brake calipers.

Three paint finishes will be available with each SL: matte night black magno, matte designo cashmere white magno, or designo diamond white. The package will be available in the 333-hp, six-cylinder SL400 or the 455-hp, V8 SL500. 

No word on whether or not the trim package will be available Stateside, but European orders can be made on April 7th. More info at mercedes-benz.com.
