Mercedes-Benz SLC gets detailed image

The first details with the brand new Mercedes-Benz SLC have been recently released and the future rival for the Porsche 911, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and so on, will cost from around 80,000 GBP.

The brand new Mercedes-Benz SLC has been already caught testing by our spy photographers and new the first details with the sports car are surfacing. First of all, the new SLC will be a sports car slotted below the SLS AMG, and if its larger brother costs a whopping 200,000 GBP, the SLC will “only” set you back for about 80,000 GBP, which will make it competitive.

The most important part of the model will definitely be its engine and it will get a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 unit under its hood, which will be shared with the next-gen C63 AMG, and it will produce approximately 480 HP and even 500 HP with the AMG Performance Package. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint should take less than 4 seconds. The new Mercedes-Benz SLC is expected to make its way onto the market in 2015. This will be sold along with the SLS, which will not be discontinued.
