Rumormill: Mercedes SLC to Arrive in 2015 With V-6 and V-8 Engine Options

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

We have heard all kind of rumors about the upcoming Mercedes SLC . Initially, it was rumored that the model would be offered as a baby-SLS, but rumors are now pointing toward the SLC being the successor to the larger SLS .

Rumors from Car say that The SLC will be built on an updated version of the SLS’s aluminum space-frame architecture and will be offered with a choice of a V-6 or V-8 engine. Car also claims that base versions will get a 3.0-liter V-6 engine with an output of about 333 horsepower, while top versions will get a 4.0-liter V-8 twin-turbo engine with an output of about 485 horsepower. Also claimed it that there will be an SLC S version that will target the 911 Turbo S. It will get a high-output version of the V-8 engine, which will deliver an impressive 585 horsepower.

According to the report, the new Mercedes SLS will be unveiled in 2015 and will be priced from about £70,000 (around $110,000 at the current exchange rates).

With rumors like these, we have to take them with a grain of salt, but it is nice to see some word on this much-anticipated model. We’ll see just how true these really are.

It seems nice that Mercedes SLC is taking up to another level since it will have the V-6 And V-8 engine options, which will give more choices for the customers on what kind of engine they will have in 2015.

Sounds like a new super duper awesome vehicle just perfect for womensmiley

From another side, I hope these are rumors...cause I don’t think I’ll be able to have it...smiley

Watching some photos of an SLS I must say that is one of the few cars that doesn’t look ok with a matte finish.

SLS ia a awesome car from many points of view: design, performance and even price considering the first two points.

I wish that all I just read will come true and are not just rumors cause I’m very enthusiastic.

I am very happy that is not a "baby" car but a large one. Hope it’s true.

beautiful car! the characteristic elegance of Mercedes Benz.

333, 485 and 585 horsepower!! that is something. Glad to head this!
