The new multifunction sports steering wheel in nappa leather with perforated grip area and new light carbon-grain aluminum trim, makes you believe you are on the race track. The refreshed instrument cluster, standard multifunction colour display and 7” Media Display (increased from 5.8”) are stylish finishes.

It features internet capability, a radio, twin tuner and a CD drive which facilitates networking with mobile devices via Bluetooth. The larger 7” Media Display & updated optional COMAND Online (NTG 5*1). Garmin® replaces Becker MAP PILOT.
The exterior of the SLC is fashionable, confident and brimming with sports chic. The sportier front with steep black diamond radiator grille bears the three-star Mercedes-Benz quality. There are also the additions of the louvre in iridium silver, new bumper with larger air intakes and a chrome wing offering pure Mercedes-Benz style. The re-designed halogen headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights feature LED technology and are standard for SLC 200, 300 and 250 d.
The semi-automatic closing of boot separator with KEYLESS-GO ensures that you don’t need to get out and manually close the separator, whilst the operation of the roof when driving can be completed at up to 25 mph, from an initiated 3 mph. There has also been a change to the rear triangular window, which can now be closed or raised when the vario-roof is open.
The SLC AMG 43 brings together perfectly coordinated features designed to further enhance sportiness and exclusivity. The powerful AMG body styling ensures a dynamic appearance from any angle.
The most efficient six-cylinder performance roadster on the market, the SLC AMG 43 is the first V6 model to feature the new nomenclature. It stands out with the 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine with modified engine management and higher boost pressure. A Roadster with a powerful punch: forceful, unforgettable, it has sonorous 367 hp (270 kW) and a torque of 520 Nm catapulting it from 0–62.5 mph in 4.7 seconds.
Once in the nappa leather/DINAMICA microfiber with red contrast top stitching driving seat, the sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles firmly in hand, AMG excitement simply 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.
