2018 SLC Roadster

SLC Roadster

Where the open road reaches for the sky.

2018 SLC Performance

PERFORMANCE

The innovative SLC engines combine fire-breathing power with free-breathing efficiency. Both the 241-hp 2.0L turbo-4 in the SLC 300 and AMG-enhanced 362-hp biturbo V6 in the SLC 43 turn motion into emotion. Their multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection self-tune every few milliseconds, so they turn fuel into good, clean fun.

Shifts like a dream, swings with your mood

A slick paddle-shifted 9-speed automatic combines a wider range with shorter steps between gears, to make the most of the torque curve. It's also light, quick and efficient. DYNAMIC SELECT has a mode for every mood, from ECO to Sport+. Each one varies the throttle, shifting, steering and more. There's even a mode you can customize.

When corners get sharp, it gets sharper

Every SLC embraces the curves and clings to the road with a sport-tuned suspension. An adjustable suspension option continuously adapts the SLC 300's damping to the road surface, or you can dial it in via DYNAMIC SELECT. The SLC 43 features its own standard AMG RIDE CONTROL Sport Suspension, with more rigid components and adaptive damping.

Roadster freedom, track-star performance

The Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 is not just a more powerful SLC, it's pumped up in virtually every way. Big, perforated brakes with 4-piston front calipers lurk behind 18-inch AMG wheels. Its 362-hp V6 biturbo engine features increased turbo boost. Its 9-speed is quicker-shifting. And an AMG Driver's Package hones its performance to an even finer edge.

DESIGN

From its chrome diamond-block grille to its "twin torch" LED taillamps, the SLC wraps its long-hood/short-deck balance in brilliance. Designed to slice through the wind and through corners, its sleek muscle and wide stance reveal its pure sports-car soul. And its power hardtop is among the industry's most elegant.

Easygoing hardtop, open even when it's closed

In around 20 seconds, the SLC's signature power retractable hardtop folds into the trunk, delivering open-air euphoria while leaving ample luggage space. An electric trunk divider makes top-lowering even easier. Two types of Panoramic roof are available: with a tinted see-through panel, or the electrically variable tint of exclusive MAGIC SKY CONTROL

Take in the air, and the airwaves

Craftsmanship meets connectivity in the SLC cockpit. Advanced technology is available in abundance, along with the timeless open-air joys of a two-seater. Clear analog gauges team with vivid colour displays. Even the electronic gear selector wraps high-tech operation in a sculpture of aluminum and leather.

When it comes to style, the sky's the limit

The open-air SLC is always open to showing your style. A wide array of colors, 18-inch AMG wheels and options let you take it up a notch or two. Standard AMG styling on the SLC 300 is set off by a chrome diamond-block grille. And on either SLC, a Night Package cloaks key elements in gloss black.

Technology

The SLC's available AIRSCARF neck-level heating system envelops your neck and shoulders in warmed air. It's like a virtual scarf you don't have to tie, so you can keep the top down longer after the sun goes down, or as summer turns to fall. Three heat settings and speed-dependent airflow help make cool days and evenings cozier.

Line up the stars, or block out the sun.

A Mercedes-Benz exclusive, MAGIC SKY CONTROL turns the Panoramic roof transparent by electrically aligning tiny particles within its special glass overhead panel. Switch off the power and it darkens, to help keep out harsh sunlight and its thermal energy. It effectively blocks UV and infrared rays in either mode, helping keep the cabin cooler.

Entertainment from everywhere, as close as your cockpit

The advanced entertainment and information systems available in the SLC put the world at your fingertips. You can stream audio from your Bluetooth® device, or opt for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto, which put their own interfaces, apps and voice control into your SLC. [1]

In the moment, and for your future.

The SLC's safety engineering stretches beyond its reinforced body and dual roll bars. Its systems use a variety of advanced sensors to look out for you. Among them, radar-based Active Brake Assist can help reduce collisions with traffic ahead. And standard Blind Spot Assist keeps a watchful eye to either side. [2]
