  • 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC Final Edition

    Mercedes-Benz will show two special-edition roadsters at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next month and each will likely signal the end of the line for their model lines. On Tuesday, Mercedes unveiled the 2020 SLC Final Edition and the SL Grand Edition, both of which will make their public debuts in Geneva. Like the first SLK from 1996, the SLC is available in yellow. That color was called Yellowstone in Europe and Sunburst Yellow in the U.S. This version is called Sun Yellow. Both the SLC 300 and SLC 43 get the Final Edition treatment, but only the SLC 43 will be offered in yellow. The SLC 300...

    Roadsters like the 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC aren’t exactly in vogue right now. The Honda S2000 faded away a few years ago. BMW Z4 sales have fizzled to levels far below those of the more expensive 6-Series Convertible. Porsche’s pushed the Boxster upmarket. And the only bright spot on the...

    Mercedes-Benz’s entry-level sports car, the SLK-Class, is about to undergo a mid-cycle update and in the process be rebranded an SLC. According to a new report, when the SLC arrives, there won’t be a dedicated performance offering to replace the current SLK55 from Mercedes-AMG. Instead, the new performance range-topper will likely be an ‘AMG sport’ model built by Mercedes-Benz rather than Mercedes-AMG. Spy shots of prototypes have already been spotted. This model is expected to feature a version of the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 fitted to existing AMG sport models...
