Mercedes-Benz SLC: Mini SLS to fight Porsche 911 in the works!

Mercedes-Benz SLC

Mercedes-Benz is reportedly working on a mini SLS called the Mercedes-Benz SLC to fight the Porsche 911.

They’ve confirmed to Autocar that the new V8-powered two-seater has been granted an official codename — traditionally the first step towards intensive development and a production future.

The new sports car is scheduled for launch in 2014 and has a projected price of £75,000. The evocatively styled two-door has been conceived in a joint exercise between Mercedes-Benz’s regular passenger car department and its performance car division, AMG.
