Mercedes-Benz has imported the SLC 43 AMG to India for homologation. The top-spec SLC is expected to be launched for the Indian market by the end of this year via the CBU route.
The Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 is a powerful version of the SLC and comes powered by a 3.0-litre V6 mill that churns out 367bhp of power and 520Nm of torque. This motor comes paired to the brand’s 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. It does the 0-100kmph sprint in 4.7seconds and an electronically limited top-speed of 250kmph.
The Mercedes-Benz SLC 43 is a replacement to the SLK 55 AMG all over. It is a facelifted model of the SLK and not a completely new car. The SLC name, instead of the SLK, comes due to Mercedes’ new nomenclature. The styling and cabin features are in line with the current range of Mercedes-Benz cars.
The Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 will step into the shoes of the SLK roadster and carry forward the legacy of one of the best luxury convertibles in the world. With the launch of this two-door open top car, the Stuttgart-based carmaker might also launch the regular SLC for the Indian market at a later stage.
