The new Mercedes flagship supercar is confirmed for, not this year’s, but 2010 Geneva Motorshow and will come in both coupe and roadster forms. The retro-designed Merc with gullwing doors ranks below the outgoing Mclaren SLR as it’s powered by an AMG V8 with 580hp and 640nm, which is a bit disappointing as we expect it to be more powerful than the SLR. Afterall, with the SLR gone, this SLC will be the company’s flagship model.
A year after the coupe, a roadster version will appear which has conventional doors. Technical specs are the same for both cars and will guarantee under 4 seconds acceleration and top speed of over 300kmh. Mercedes has plans to deliver 6000 units of this car for price of several hundred thousands Euros.
