The SLC is a visionary roadster with roots that go back to the 1970s when Mercedes-Benz first introduced the SLC name. After almost twenty years later, the SLC was discontinued, but reborn again as the Mercedes-Benz SLK in 1996. Another twenty years slips by and the proud SLK is celebrating its birthday by re-establishing its dominance as the Mercedes-Benz SLC. The new design and state-of-the-art technology make it a hot commodity for Mercedes-Benz collectors and driving enthusiasts everywhere.

The SLC is available in two variants. The SLC 300 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG® SLC 43 mark the premiere of the SLC of the 21st century. In the SLC 300, a 2.0-liter bitrubo 4-cylinder engine pushes 241 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. This admirably powerful and efficient engine accelerates the SLC from 0 to 60 in just 5.7 seconds. Impressive as that may be, the SLC 43 AMG® uses a handcrafted 3.0-liter biturbo V6. With this secret weapon, 362 horsepower come out of the woodwork like magic, topped only by the 384 lb.-ft. of torque. This deadly combination lowers the 0 to 60 time to 4.6 seconds. For the icing on the cake, both SLC trims come standard with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
The SLC roadster is made to dominate the asphalt and make drivers smile without the need for excessive power or expensive price tags. With a perfectly balanced powertrain, the SLC 300 tops out at 130 MPH while the SLC 43 AMG® can keep going until it hits a limited 155 MPH.
There are two options currently available for the SLC, which are a 2.0-liter biturbo and a 3.0-liter biturbo. In the future, it is likely that we will see an SLC 45 AMG® with a more powerful V6 or even a monstrous V8 engine.
With its friendly price tag and light-weight characteristics, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC provides top-shelf efficiency that will save you money not only at the checkout, but also through years of use, thanks to the highly-efficient 2.0-liter turbo engine.
Just in time for its 20th birthday, the SLK chassis gets a body redesign that really shows off its muscle without losing touch with the historic Mercedes-Benz culture that set the SLC in motion in the first place. The upgrades do not end with a redesign, however. The SLC now also features a slew of new aluminum trim pieces that come with a carbon fiber finish. The instrument cluster in the dashboard has also been redesigned for maximum comfort and convenience, complete with a new sport steering wheel.
The 2017 SLC passes another milestone with advanced driver-assistance features and wide range of DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes. The SLC now comes standard with premium technologies such as Active Brake Assist, DYNAMIC SELECT, and for the grand finale, a 9G-Tronic 9-speed transmission. This transmission has also been adopted by the GLC, but is unheard of anywhere else in the industry. As available options, SLC owners can also enjoy MAGIC SKY CONTROL®, COMAND® Infotainment, ambient lighting, and Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF®.
