A few days ago, Mercedes Head of Design, Gorden Wagener, officially confirmed that the new baby SLS - also known as the SLC will officially be unveiled sometime in 2014. This new model will take on vehicles like the Porsche 911 and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, and will be priced from about $130,000.
As previously reported, the future SLC will drop the famous SLS model’s gullwing doors, but will feature the same design language as the current SLS. Under the hood, Mercedes will place a twin-turbocharged 5.4-liter V8 engine with an output of about 500 HP. There were rumors suggesting that the next baby SLS would use an inline-6 engine, but we strongly doubt that Mercedes will drop their usual V8 engine for a sports car. The engine will more than likely be a downsized version of the V8, with its capacity taken to about 4.0 liters, but those are rumors as well.
