Fresh spy shots of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLC

Muamer Hodzic January 28, 2009


New spy shots have emerged of the much rumored Mercedes-Benz SLC supercar, which is said to replace the already legendary SLR. AutoWeek has published pictures of a test mule making rounds on a track, but heavily masked with plastic and tape. Rumor has it that the codenamed C197 will have a AMG V8 with 580 to 600hp and go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds. Even with a V8, the supercar should be on par if not better than the outgoing SLR, due to its weight advantage, mostly because aluminum and carbon fiber will be used in the construction of the frame and body.

  1. “Even with a V8, the supercar should be on par if not better than the outgoing SLR, due to its weight advantage, mostly because aluminum and carbon fiber will be used in the construction of the frame and body.”

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but the SLR already has a body constructed 100% of carbon fibre, so I’m not sure why this new car will have any advantage over the SLR based on it having a carbon fibre body.

  2. Good point. Yes, the SLR does use CFRP for its entire body construction. The weight of the SLC should be at around 1,650kg, whereas the current SLR is around 1,800 kg, which is what I was trying to point out :)
