Dynamic silhouette.

The profile features fascinating signature roadster bodystyling with the passenger compartment set well back. With the Vario roof open, the steeply-raked A-pillar and the frameless side windows catch the eye.

The vent grilles on the front wing feature a fin in high-gloss chrome which is reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL.

Muscular rear end.

More muscular than ever: the rear end. Even more striking with the black diffuser, flanked by two integrated, chrome-plated tailpipe trims. Emphasised by narrow tail lamps.

The LED rear lamps feature an array of units arranged horizontally one on top of the other: brake light and tail light at the top, brake light and tail light in the middle, turn signal indicator and reversing light at the bottom. All the elements of the rear lamps are installed under a red glass cover.

Striking front section.

The SLC makes its mark and wins hearts with unique details. Leading the way: the striking front with diamond grille, one of a kind with optional pins in chrome and integrated Mercedes star.

Sporty interior.

The sporty interior design is an invitation to indulge in some open-top driving. Airing the sports seats or the sports steering wheel with perforated grip is sure to attract even more admirers.

Ambient lighting showcases the interior in impressive style, optionally in the right colour to suit your mood.

Vast skies above you: with MAGIC SKY CONTROL the transparency of the panoramic Vario roof can be electrically controlled. This enables you to enjoy a light and friendly atmosphere in the interior.

A scarf made of warm air.

Pleasantly warm air is blown out from adjustable air outlets in the head restraints and warms the neck and shoulders of driver and passenger like an invisible scarf.
