Here’s you first look at Mercedes-Benz’s new Porsche killer – the SLC.

Caught here in heavy camouflage, this SLC is essentially a downsized, cheaper variant of the Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS supercar.

Built to tackle the mighty Porsche 911, the SLC is tipped to feature a smaller turbo-charged sibling of the SLS’s naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8.

Early power estimates sit at 360kW, with a rumoured Black Series model likely to churn out 435kW.

The SLC is expected to be launched in early 2015.
