Next Mercedes Sport Car - SLC
As you already know by now Mercedes and Mclaren split after the SLR didn’t have the success everyone expected. As a result, the next sport car from Mercedes will be built without McLaren’s help.
The next sport car will be called SLC and will be built in cooperation with DTM. It will be based on the next-generation SL and will be a front/mid-engine car with rear-wheel drive model. A first concept will be unveiled next year at Geneva Motor Show.
The SLC will have a fixed carbon roof to lower the center of gravity and gullwing doors to link it with the SLR. The SLC will be a 2-seater, although one of the design goals is that the car provide more than adequate space for two people and their luggage.
It will be powered by a modified 6.2-liter AMG V-8 engine with an output of 700 hp. Price will be around $200,000 and will be limited to only 500 units.
