Mercedes-Benz SLC shows some skin at the 'Ring
Tipped to be called SLC, it's expected to pack a twin-turbo V8 and take aim at the upper end of the Porsche 911 range. Project C190, as it's known internally, will offer a variety of outputs starting at around 485 horsepower in the base model and reaching as high as 600 hp in the anticipated Black Series model.
The prototype pictured here testing at the Nürburgring is still all taped up, but without any major body cladding, this is our best look yet at the coupe's overall shape. Expect a 2+2 layout (instead of the strict two-seat layouts of the SLR and SLS), probably with conventional doors (instead of the SLR's butterfly portals or the gullwings on the SLS), and with the possibility of a convertible version to follow after it hits the market a little over a year from now.
