Mercedes will bring their second AMG-exclsuive model to the market in 2015 in the form of the SLC. It remains to be seen whether the model will be sold alongside its SLS sibling or if Mercedes will wait until the production ends to launch the SLC.

The sports car is currently known by its internal codename W190 and set set to employ a more conventional design in comparison to its retro styled bigger brother. It is important that it appeals to the youth crowd, even though in all likelihood it will be bought by older customers," an unidentified source stated.

AMG's naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8 is leading the chase to provide power to the SLC and will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. It will be positioned as far back as possible for optimal weight distribution and should produce around 450bhp.
