The 2018 AMG-powered SLC will undergo the same treatment as the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-class. The Germans have prepared a special edition for 2018 model year in order to attract more buyers. Even in Europe where Germans have sold usually three times more SLC’s than in U.S. the sales are slowly decreasing. Thus 2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC-class will also come with RedArt Edition.
2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC-class – Red Accents In and Out
The regular SLC-class got RedArt Edition as a new model, but AMG version will have it as an option package. Although it’s the same edition there are differences between them. The 2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC-class RedArt Edition will come with red accents on the front bumper, the outer line of the air intakes, side fins, and rear diffuser. That’s the same, but unlike 5-spoke wheels of the regular SLC, the AMG version comes with 10-spoke alloy wheels with an outline of rims are also painted in red. Also, the red brake calipers with AMG lettering are visible behind the wheels.
On the inside, there isn’t so much red paint as in SLC-class where seats come completely in red. AMG also has seats tailored from Nappa leather but they come in black. Of course, there is red contrast stitching, and the seat belts come in red color. Outline of the center console is also in that color as well as elements on the door panels. Headrests are carbon-fiber inspired with RedArt Edition logo on them. Floormats have AMG lettering (shift level also) with a red outline. Seat heating and AirScarf heating system are standard on this convertible.
2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC-class – Same Engine
There, however, aren’t any changes under the hood, unlike most AMG models that came with new engine lineup for 2018 model year. AMG E63, AMG GLC, AMG S63, and S65 are just some that got new engines. But the 2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC-class comes with same 3.0-liter twin turbo V6. It produces 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. This isn’t extraordinary since this model is only one year old. Like the regular SLC-class, this one also only comes with the nine-speed automatic transmission.
2018 Mercedes-AMG SLC-class – Release Date
This luxury roadster will be available this summer, but the price isn’t yet announced. As far as our opinion is concerned it will probably stick close to currents $61.225.
