First Look At What’s Being Called The SLC, Mercedes’ New High-Powered Coupe

I’m taking this all with a grain of salt, but according to the fine gentlemen over at Winding Road, pictured before you is a test mule for Mercedes forthcoming Audi R8-slayer, dubbed the SLC. If the rumors are to be believed, the SLC (which will be built by the German company HWA) is set to be powered by AMG’s 6.2-Liter V8, and will be based on the next-generation SL platform. As a result, a front-engine design is expected along with a non-retractable carbon fiber roof.
