Mercedes Benz SLC Class For Sale
The Mercedes Benz SLC Class for sale is one of those breath-taking roadsters with a history going back decades. From 1971 to 1981 the German manufacturer produced coupé SL series, the R107, and C107, scarcer than hen's teeth, and a gem for any vintage enthusiast.
Enters the sexy 2016 compact roadster: SLC200, 300, and 300 AMG-Line. With a close resemblance to its sibling the older SLK, the Mercedes Benz SLC for sale has gone back to curves and bold lines. The bumper, prominent grille and badge and slanting headlights, alloy wheels, and blood-red colour option make for an unmistakable roadster appeal. Although one is tempted to compare the SLC with the older SLK, some visible upgrades and improvements suggest the SLC is not just the SLK in a new body. The steering wheel has a new look, the instrument panel as a new, more sporty design and aluminium contrast elements support the sporty, high performance feeling on the inside. Seats are supportive and comfortable and the cabin is quite comfortable if you are not 2m tall, a length that should be a bit challenging in any roadster. All the usual refinements are present: Steering wheel controls, an infotainment display, leather seats, and of course a retractable roof that folds back in about 20 seconds. You cannot however fold the roof whilst driving, you have to come to a complete standstill. Extra padding has been added to the roof design that ensures minimal cabin noise when closed, something that is always a bit of an issue with cabriolet's. There is also a sunroof option available with clarity and opacity settings. In terms of boot space, a roadster has never been designed with optimal space mind. With the roof closed the space is ample enough for two people's weekend luggage, with the roof down however, you might fit a golf bag at best, unless you load your luggage first and then let the roof down.
Other technological bells and whistles include cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and auxiliary inputs, tire pressure monitor, automatic windshield wipers, and automatic headlights. In terms of safety, the second hand Mercedes Benz SLC for sale is fitted with ABS brakes, stability control, 6 airbags, and the Merc PreSafe system that prepares and protects passengers because of smart sensors throughout the vehicle communicating with other safety features in the vehicle. Extras are abundant, depending on your budget with the Airscarf (that keeps your neck warm) or an upgraded Harmon Kardon audio system.
Performance-wise the second hand Mercedes Benz SLC for sale is not for hotheads that want the V12 rush. It is an elegant roadster with enough power and attitude to make an impression. The manufacturer claims the SLC300 AGM accelerates from 0 – 100km in 6 seconds, more than enough power for a pleasurable drive. The driving experience is refined in all manners of speaking, fantastic handling, smooth gear shifting, and comfortable suspension. Combined fuel consumption is around 7,4litres per 100km for the 300 AGM with a slightly better consumption for the 200.
