Rendering Of Porsche 911 Rival From Mercedes-Benz Released

Someone from Top Speed revealed that the company created a rendering of a car that was initially called the SLC AMG. The upcoming vehicle is reportedly designed to go up against the Porsche 911. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was supposed to the vehicle that will take on the 911. However, a number of industry watchers indicated that the curb weight of 1,620 kg of the SLS may not be enough to take on the 1,415 kg of the Porsche 911 Carrera. The new sports car that remains officially unnamed was shown through the rendering that Top Speed created. The rendered SLC is similar to the Viper or the Corvette, which… Continue Reading »

Spies Spot a New Mercedes Sports Car Prototype

News sources say that a new sub-SLS AMG Mercedes sports car prototype has been spotted recently. Being only a prototype, there are no definite predictions regarding when will the car finally make its debut or if its end product will even see the light of day. According to Autoblog, the new SLS AMG prototype appeared to be smaller than the current SLS AMG model of the famous German automaker. However, it does retain some of the car’s signature looks from the hood all the way to the back and even to the chassis. It did ditch the gullwing doors though and it seems like it barely has enough room for… Continue Reading »

SLC Greenlighted For 2016 Release

The news out of Germany confirms that Mercedes-Benz will be releasing a Porsche 911 fighter come 2016, to be called the SLC.

Tentative pricing rumors slot the SLC between a Carrera S and a 4S. To do battle with the Porsche icon, Mercedes has announced that the SLC will be equipped with a twin turbo V8.  This engine will be a new AMG development called the M177, which will boast of an output of 485 horsepower.

Mercedes-Benz working on a SLK Gullwing?

Is Mercedes-Benz prepping a new low-end Gullwing? Well according to AutoExpress, Mercedes has plans to bring a new SLK Gullwing to the masses, which may look very similar to its bigger brother, the SLC Gullwing. Besides having some amazing gullwing doors, and draw inspiration from the legendary 300SL, it is also supposed to be hybrid. With some very muscular lines, it will be a big change compared to the current SLK (which women love to drive). The hood is much longer and due to the gullwing doors, the side sills will be much higher than on normal cars. The designers actually took that weakness and turned it into an opportunity….

Fresh spy shots of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLC

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.
