The Mercedes SLC which is also often referred to as the Gullwing has yet to hit full prototype form, it has continued to sport the temporary body panels as it continues its lengthy development process leaving many guessing what the final design may be. Of course, the Mercedes line-up has a very clear, yet similar design through its entire product range meaning renderings such as the superb version produced from WCF resident renderer Larson(see right) surely won't be too far off.

Just to state the obvious, the Gullwing name comes from the top opening entrance doors and it will replace the Mercedes-Mclaren SLR which will soon come to its production end after the upcoming SLR speedster.

Power will come from AMG's 6.3-litre V8 with a power figure in the region of 571bhp expected. Courtesy of a lightweight aluminium spaceframe chassis, Mercedes will aim to keep the overall dry weight below 1650kg and pricing will likely start at around €150,000.
