Mercedes-AMG SLC43 – the top-end version of the Mercedes SLC coupe-cabriolet, which replaced the “charged” modification SLK 55 AMG. News premiered at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2016.
And if the standard model modifications SLC escaped mostly only external changes, the car from the AMG division has got a totally different engine, which surprisingly turned out to be less powerful than the one that was on its predecessor.
As for the Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 exterior. Naprimer, front mersedes completely redrew: changed the headlights, grille and bumper. Rear bumper undergone revision and lights.
From a conventional coupe-cabriolet top-end modification allocate spoiler on the trunk lid, divided in two exhaust pipes, wheels of special design and rising above them the red brake calipers.
Inside, Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 sports a generous set of inserts of carbon fiber, leather sports seats and sports steering wheel. Compared with the pre-reform machine are changed design of the instrument panel and screen multimedia system on the center console has become larger.
If the former Mercedes SLK 55 AMG sets in motion a major 5.5-liter V8 rated at 421 hp (540 Nm), combined in a pair with a 7-band machine, it has come to be replaced by Mercedes-AMG SLC43 got a more modest 3.0-liter “six” biturbo with 367 returns in power and 520 Nm (from 2 000 to 4 200 rev/min). Labor he is paired with 9-band automatic transmission.
And it may become a little more traction, but once the power has fallen by 54 “horses”. This engine is already familiar on models C 450 AMG, as well as the GLE 450 AMG and a similar version in the back of the Coupe. But here it is elevated to the higher rank, although previously assumed that a top SLC still get a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo – though not 510 hp, but with at least 462 hp
The Germans retort? They point out two things: first, to disperse hundreds in SLC 43 decreased only 0.1 seconds – to 4.7 seconds. Second, the average fuel consumption in the combined cycle fell by 0.6 l/100 km – 7.8 liters per hundred kilometers. Yes, they are absolutely seriously believe that this is extremely important. But in any case the maximum speed is limited to 250 km/h.
