Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Mercedes-Benz baby SLS, Porsche-911, SLS AMG on 06 10th, 2011

Any one out there eyeing some news on Mercedes-Benz baby SLS. Gear up.

Reports from authentic sources indicate that the so-called SLC will sport up to 500 PS (368 kW / 493 bhp) and be positioned as an arch-rival to the Porsche 911. However, you will not find the gullwing doors of the larger SLS AMG model. But, the good news is that you need to spend just €100,000, at the maximum for an entry-level model with around 350 PS (257 kW / 345 bhp).

To cut the long story short, there are two possibilites. Either the model will be a successor to the SLS replacing it in 2016 or it will be an introduction of its own in 2014.

Let’s wait and see.
