The closer distance of the spy photos and less headache-inducing camo from the last time we saw the car gives a much better idea of its shape. You can easily discern the headlights arcing over the fenders and lower air intakes. From the front, it looks a lot like the SLS, but the profile and rear show progress. Mercedes' designers have taken the rounded rump of the earlier car but made it a bit more sleek and stylish.
A release date for the SLC hasn't officially been announced yet, but it should be soon. The 2014 German Grand Prix in July has been raised as one possibility. Power is expected to come from AMG's new 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 pumping out around 450 horsepower. Given its chartreuse color scheme, the promotion of Mercedes new sports coupe has seemingly begun.
