Mercedes-Benz SLC to debut in 2016, Black Series version also planned

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 27, 2013

It’s not a secret that Mercedes-Benz is planning a 911-rival in the form of the SLC, a smaller version of the SLS AMG but without the hinged doors. The new SLC will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine delivering 485 hp and will carry a price tag of around 109,000 euros according to AutoBild. An S version will also be available with 550 hp and around 145,000 euros.

Still, the SLC will receive a Black Series with 585 hp. Moreover, the Mercedes-Benz SLC will not offer a four-wheel drive or convertible versions as the German manufacturer relies only on the coupe.

Comparing it with the SLS AMG, the SLC will retain its shape featuring a long bonnet and an impressive design. Furthermore, the SLC will ride on an aluminum space frame in order to be lighter than its rivals. Mercedes-Benz is planning to introduce this new model in 2016.
