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.
