Mercedes-Benz SLC AMG to make 2015 debut

by SpeedLux

Details have emerged about the upcoming Mercedes-Benz SLC AMG which will possibly out in 2015.

It’s been quite some time since we last heard about the SLS, but now a well known magazine has obtained new details about Mercedes’ 911 rival.
Named as “C190”, the SLC AMG is set to use a revised version of the SLS’ aluminum space frame architecture.

There is information to suggest that it will lose the gullwing doors in order to shave off weight and improve body stiffness.
Initially, a coupe version has been planned but a roadster version could also be introduced later.

The 1,550 kg (3,417 lbs) car will be launched with a new V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine producing 485 hp (362 kW) and 500 lb-ft (677 Nm).
It is likely to cost about 80,000 GBP (93,164 EUR or 126,568 USD).

The SLC S will carry a price tag of around 115,000 GBP (134,145 EUR or 181,493 USD) and include a performance pack with carbon-ceramic brakes, bucket seats and a tuned V8 engine generating 585 hp (436 kW) and 553 lb-ft (749 Nm) of torque. Both V8 variants will feature a dual-clutch, 7-speed transmission with shorter final drive ratio and a limited slip differential.

The entry-level version will have a 333 hp (248 kW) 3.0-liter V6 engine and will be available later in 2016.
The base V6 model is expected to cost 70,000 GBP (81,653 EUR or 110,747 USD).

So far we have heard only about the engine and the price tag it carries, but there is no word yet on performance and other specifications.
