When Mercedes puts the brakes on the production of the SLS AMG in June 2014, its place will be taken by the new SLC , also known as the AMG GT or C190. However, the new AMG GT is not a true successor for the current SLS AMG.
According to former AMG CEO Ola Källenius, the SLS AMG will eventually receive a successor, but this won’t happen anytime soon. This is mostly because a car as unique as the SLS simple cannot be seceded by just any car.
Källenius said that the SLS AMG enjoyed huge success and requires its own "chapter in the automotive history." No matter when the successor arrives, it will be a true flagship supercar .
Until the day the SLS’ successor arrives, Mercedes will develop "another true AMG in an interesting sports car segment" — aka the C190 project that will arrive on the market in 2015.
