Mercedes-Benz SLC "Gullwing" interior has been revealed in scans that appear leaked from within Mercedes-Benz.

A few photos showing the new Mercedes-Benz "Gullwing" SLC have creeped up again. This time the interior is under the spotlight showing a very retro look. Interestingly we have no source for this photography, but we are inclined to believe they come either from Mercedes themselves as a marketing "leak" ploy or from an insider. Quality is not exactly up to our usual standards; take the slanted borders on the left and right sides that lead to suspicions of a scanned document, an internal pamphlet/brochure perhaps. And the instrument cluster image, our spy photographers are good but not so good as to get inside the car and take a straight-on shot like that.

Shared Mercedes switchgear is pretty evident, such as the COMMAND knob at the centre console, temperature switches, flat-bottomed steering wheel and headlight switch.

SLC is of course the in-house Mercedes supercar brought on to replace the SLR, since McLaren and the Germans are parting ways, developing their own cars. Power source is the 6.2-litre V8 producing upwards of a highly desirable 550bhp and 445lb ft of torque. We should start to spy the car in its own skin, out of that Viper garment, pretty soon.
