An Icon Reborn.
In 1996 Mercedes-Benz introduced the SLK, an automotive icon that redefined the compact roadster. Now, 20 years on, comes the latest version: the Mercedes-Benz SLC.
Like its predecessor, the SLC combines athletic styling and performance with exceptional comfort. Top-down motoring is a pleasure thanks to the electro-hydraulic vario-roof, which you can open or close at the touch of a button. Optional extras, such as AIRSCARF neck level heating and the AIRGUIDE, which reduces in-cabin turbulence, provide an even more refined open-top experience.
Driving dynamics are exemplary, with a range of petrol and diesel engines offering formidable power and efficiency. In addition, DYNAMIC SELECT lets you adapt the car’s on-road manners to suit your tastes.
As for design, the SLC features a host of dramatic new styling elements: from the snarling front section, with new-look headlamps, to the sports steering wheel with its signature flattened bottom section.
The new SLC Sport already conveys a strong presence even at a standstill. The comprehensive safety equipment and numerous exclusive details such as the multi-function sports steering wheel in a 3-spoke design, firm sports seats, the air conditioning and headlamps with integral LED daytime running lamps give your roadster that very special something. The Audio20 CD ensures yet more music and the best connections. It features internet capability, a radio, twin tuner and a CD drive which facilitates networking with mobile devices via Bluetooth.
The SLC AMG Line brings together perfectly coordinated features designed to further enhance sportiness and exclusivity. The powerful AMG bodystyling ensures a dynamic appearance from any angle.
A roadster like a thunderbolt: forceful, unmistakable. Sonorous 367hp (270kW) and a torque of 520Nm catapult it from 0–62.5mph in 4.7 seconds. Pressed into the sports seats in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre by the acceleration, the sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles firmly in hand, the AMG excitement sweeps you away. Everything points to sport on the exterior, too: 18" AMG alloy wheels, painted black or titanium grey with a high-sheen finish, two chromed tailpipe trims with a centrepiece, black exterior mirrors – and the inimitable face of AMG.

From sports seats with optimised lateral support to the new 7-inch media display, every element of the SLC interior has been designed to maximise your driving enjoyment. Depending on the model line, premium materials range from leather upholstery to light carbon-grain aluminium while dynamic design features include a flat-bottomed sports steering wheel and brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs.
To further enhance your SLC experience, extensive optional equipment ranges from ambient lighting to our acclaimed AIRSCARF*. Using air outlets in the head restraints, this neck level heating system channels warm air around the necks of the driver and passenger, enabling you to enjoy top-down motoring even in bracing conditions.
The optional AIRGUIDE draught deflectors are also available to help minimise turbulence and noise within the cabin.
Exterior highlights include a dramatic new front section, featuring larger air intakes, a restyled bumper and apron, and expressive new-look headlamps. Meanwhile the rear boasts redesigned wings, tail lights, bumper and tailpipes.
For an even more dynamic look, the AMG Line comes complete with muscular AMG bodystyling, lowered Sports suspension, and an eye-catching diamond radiator grille with chrome accents.
Naturally, the SLC retains the electro-hydraulic vario-roof, which you can automatically raise or lower in a matter of seconds. Options include the panoramic sunroof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL, which can be switched from tinted to transparent at the touch of a button.
The SLC Roadster offers a choice of four powerful yet efficient engines that deliver all the performance you need, whether you’re on a motorway or a winding country road.
With the 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission*, the petrol-driven SLC 200 can return up to 47.9 mpg** combined and sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds.
The SLC 300, meanwhile, can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.8 seconds and return up to 47.1 mpg** combined.
Like all the great Mercedes-Benz roadsters, the SLC offers an irresistible blend of power, agility and composure.
9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission* delivers supremely smooth and responsive gear shifts, while DYNAMIC SELECT puts a range of driving modes at your disposal.
From Comfort and Eco options to Sport, Sport+ and Individual, each mode adjusts parameters such as steering and transmission to create a distinct motoring experience. Meanwhile, the new Sports Exhaust System lets you tailor acoustics for maximum excitement.
For peace of mind, the SLC also incorporates various driving assistance systems, including new ACTIVE BRAKE ASSIST. This warns the driver if the pre-set safety distance from a vehicle ahead narrows, and intervenes with autonomous braking if required.
