Mercedes-Benz SLC details emerge

Mercedes C190
New details have emerged surrounding Mercedes’ forthcoming Porsche 911 rival.

Codenamed C190, although it could wear the SLC or GT badge when it reaches production, the new model won’t be replacing the SLS AMG, but will sit below it with a price tag of around £80,000 putting it in the same bracket as models such as the 911 Carrera S and Jaguar’s pretty F-Type V8S.

Power is likely to come from a newly-developed twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 developing 358 kW (480 hp) in the base model and up to 447 kW (600 hp) in the range-topping Black Series version, which would be priced around £120,000 and compete directly with the new 911 Turbo.

Expected to surface in 2015, the aluminium-bodied SLC will be joined by the new C-Class Cabriolet and GLA-Class crossover based on the recently shown concept. An SLC Roadster should follow in 2016.
