2017 Mercedes-AMG SLC43 to get C450 Engine

In a surprising turn of events it looks like AMG may be changing its philosophy of one man one machine with the SLC. The new SLC replaces the SLK as part of Mercedes new name scheme we have seen throughout the 2016 line. According to Car and Driver the non-amg models will receive 4 cylinder engines, while the SLC43 will receive a 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque V6 engine... I feel like we have seen that somewhere before, but who am I ;)

 

The bigger question is will this be a fundamental shift in Mercedes AMG performance line or is this possibly just a one off model? Only time will tell...
