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.

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.
