Design


The SLC: guaranteed to turn heads.

The SLC is beautiful to look at, with perfectly balanced proportions emphasised by a long, sweeping bonnet and short overhangs so it looks fast even when it's standing still. The diamond grille with its chrome wing and signature three-pointed star instantly identifies the SLC as a Mercedes-Benz and the rear profile is just as smart, with distinctive tail lights and twin chrome exhausts linked by a central chrome finisher.

Dynamic silhouette.

A distinctive side profile is a fusion of form and function. With the Vario roof open, the combination of steeply raked windscreen and frameless side windows give the car a classic roadster silhouette.

Muscular rear styling.

The rear aspect is even more striking with the black diffuser, flanked by two integrated, chrome-plated tailpipe trims and accentuated by two rear lamps in a new, slimmer design.

The LED rear lamps feature an array of units arranged horizontally one on top of the other: brake light and tail light at the top, brake light and tail light in the middle, turn signal indicator and reversing light at the bottom. All the elements of the rear lamps are installed under a red glass cover.

Bold, elegant styling.

When it comes to sheer presence, fine proportions and cool design, AMG body styling puts the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 into a league of its own. The steep radiator grille, front A-Wing apron design and front splitter finished in beautiful silver chrome create a lasting first impression.

Getting the power down in style.
The powerful styling of the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 wouldn't be complete without a set of 18", multi-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels finished in elegant, high-gloss black. To add more flare the optional 18-inch AMG bi-colour wheels can be selected via the Night package.

A firm grip on power.
The steering wheel is your main point of contact with your car, so it's important it feels just right. The chunky, sculpted rim is designed to give good grip and feedback, while the lower segment of the rim is flattened, making it more comfortable for you to ease in and out of the sports seat. Spokes and shift paddles are finished in soft satin silver, and "AMG" lettering completes the look.
Trimmed in nappa leather with DINAMICA microfibre, the AMG Performance steering wheel is designed to give you maximum grip. The black rim with red topstitching are offset by soft silver spokes and aluminium shift paddles, rounding off the striking AMG interior.

Please be seated and get ready for the drive of your life.
Working like discreet guardian angels, both packages consist of highly intelligent features to keep you safe, but the best thing is you won't notice them until you need them. The Lane Tracking package includes Blind Spot Assist to warn against moving into the path of an unseen road user, while Lane Keeping Assist protects you against drifting out of lane from a momentary lapse in concentration. In the Driving Assistance package, Distance Pilot DISTRONIC takes the strain in stop-start motorway traffic, so all you have to do is steer.

The AMG instrument cluster keeps you up to date with the most important information all the time. You can access the AMG main menu, which includes RACETIMER and the AMG start-up display, through the centrally-mounted 11.4 cm TFT high-resolution multifunction colour display.

As soon as you sit in the car and glance at the dash, it's clear you're in a fast one. AMG logos and chequered flag emblems adorn the large, 170 mph speedometer and rev counter, and the RACETIMER even lets you record your lap times.

Breathtakingly efficient.
With 367 hp and 520 Nm, the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 is staggeringly quick off the mark, accelerating from 0-62 mph in only 4.7 seconds. It's no gas-guzzler though, because the 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine is also frugal thanks to cutting-edge fuel injection technology.

Power with control.
Your Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 comes with one of two suspension options. The first is a specially designed AMG sports suspension, engineered for high cornering speeds and agile handling so that you're guaranteed to have fun on your favourite road.

Or, you can specify AMG RIDE CONTROL. The suspension continuously and automatically adapts to conditions and driving style to give the best possible safety and comfort, so whether you're on a back road or a motorway, the car will always be in tune with you.

Get set for full-on thrills.
With so much power at your disposal, you need to be confident that you have the best possible grip at all times. The  AMG differential lock improves traction in all driving situations, particularly in sporty driving.

Faster, more efficient, more comfortable.

With nine forward gears, the automatic transmission offers you the ultimate in efficiency, comfort and performance. The transmission is specially tuned for the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 to make shifting even faster.

Nine is the perfect number.
The 9G-TRONIC automatic gearbox has nine forward gears to give you a more comfortable, exciting and economical drive. More gears means that no matter what sort of journey you're on, you will always have the right balance between power delivery and economy. And when you need a bit of extra thrust for overtaking, the 9G-TRONIC can skip several gears at a time during downshifts, giving instant responses. The gearbox has been specially tuned for superfast shifting to match the Mercedes-AMG 43's athletic character.
