Mercedes SLC-Class Roadster
The SLC-Class is Mercedes’ primary roadster.  Starting life in the shadow of the popular SLK roadster, the SLC is a more than suitable replacement. The SLC's body panels have been sharpened giving the little roadster a more aggressive look than it's predecessor. The revised LED headlights and taillights fall in line with the rest of the current Mercedes lineup while new exhaust outlets match the lower exterior trim tying the entire design together.
As for the SLC's power plant, gone is the old V6 in favor of a smaller four-cylinder engine. This new 2.0L four-pot develops 241-hp and 273 lb/ft of torque while a newly developed nine-speed transmission sends power to the rear wheels. Keeping the SLC tame is a 4-wheel multilink AMG suspension system which can be controlled by the driver. When the time comes and the skies clear, the SLC can put the top down to enjoy some open-top cruising. 
Inside you get the latest generation Mercedes interior equipped with 5.8-inch in-dash display and COMMAND multimedia system. This next generation SLC more than a suitable replacement for the aging SLK thanks to the liberal use aluminum to keep the weight down, an all-new engine, and that new nine-speed automatic transmission. The Mercedes-Benz SLC competes with the Audi A5, Porsche Boxster, and Jaguar F-Type.
