Mercedes-Benz teasing SLS AMG successor image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has released a handful of images showing the successor of the SLS AMG.

After it was caught by spy photographers a few times, the successor of the SLS AMG is now being placed into the spotlights in an official way, with the help of Mercedes-Benz. The company has released what should be the first official images with the successor of the SLS AMG, or better said, the first official spy photos with the upcoming supercar. The new model is apparently codenamed the C190 and it’s a prototype wearing heavy camouflage on its body.

The C190 has been heavily influenced by the SLS AMG and some notable highlights include the long hood, the sporty rear end with a dual exhaust system and the regular doors, which will replace the “gullwing” styled ones. The engine options remain uncertain for the moment but rumors are saying that the model, which was known as the SLC or the “baby SLS” before, will get a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which should develop approximately 485 HP (357 kW). A top of the line Black Series version should come with 585 HP (430 kW). Additional details on the model in question are limited for the moment.
