    Best rendering/picture of the Mercedes-Benz SLC sports car yet

    A German artist has created the best looking rendering of the upcoming Mercedes SLC yet. In case you forgot, Mercedes will be competing directly with the Porsche 911 with the SLC. There will be a 6 cylinder, likely turbo, engine option along with V8's we believe for the higher range models. The graphic artist clearly based this rendering on the SLK but if the front looks anywhere near this good, sign us up.

    If the SLC comes with a bunch of different turbo motors it is more interesting in ways that appeal to enthusiasts vs. the SLS.

    $100k less, but with a turbo V8 or V6? Sign me up.

    This may end up taking a few sales from the SLS.... a V8 twin turbo should be able to surpass the SLS power in a heart a beat after modding.

    Exactly, but the SLS will have doors that go up, and that is worth $100k apparently.

    I'm sure it will be much nicer, but I see some Crossfire looks, no?
    It will be a nice coupe, but after spending some time in an SLS at the track, I have a feeling that side by side, the SLS will prove it's superiority with little effort.
    I love the SLS and would totally have one if I had the excess cash and probably a divorce tooClick here to enlarge
