My new SLC arrived today! Wow, it's certainly more than just a facelifted SLK!
Everything about it seems a bit more stylish, a bit more modern. Even the smaller, chunkier wheel feels better to use. The roof can now be opened on the move (up to 30ish) and all 4 windows can now be closed...
Hi guys, just a quick hello from Portsmouth in Hampshire. Finally bought an SLC something I've come close to a few times but never done. I have a '79 450 SLC, this is not my first Mercedes. A few years back I had a'78 450 SEL 6.9 a fantastic car but scarily expensive to fix should the suspension...
I have a 2016 SLK, and would like to ift the grill from an SLC, the one with diamond shape insets in circular patterns. From the parts list, the bracket behind the grill is a slightly different shape, and the tabs appear to be in a different place.
Has anyone here seen or done the conversion...
Parked my SLK next to an all-new SLC yesterday.
Essentially the cars are the same, but in my opinion, some of the style of the 172 has been lost. Grafting the C class front and chromed up, fake pipes on the rear, plus losing the strong skirt design of the AMG sport model has done the shape...
Just received this from the M-B press office.

Yesterday I went to a well known Mercedes enthusiast in my area. Was amazed to find he had 40+ Mercedes in a mixture of his garages.
The one I had my eye on was a 1979 450 SLC.
Covered in protective oil (the garage wasn't damp but he is OCD) it needs some work as it's been stood for four...
From the article:
An almost production prototype of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLC (SLK facelift) was caught on video testing at the Nurburgring.

Good morning and hello to one and all.
I have just 'acquired' a 1979 SLC450 (pictures to follow when I can work out how).
Found in a French farmhouse, it hadn't seen the light of day since 2002.
A battery and a bit of encouragement and it fired up on 13 year old fuel!
Still UK registered...
I recently saw this ad for an 89 SLC and was rather taken with the car. I confess that the colour scheme - and the interior in particular - was what attracted me, but I wondered if I was in danger of committing myself to something regrettable!

I'm looking at growing my small collection of cars and I've been on the hunt for something pre 1993
I've got a 1990 300ce 24 valve which I will be keeping as ifs a cracker but if anybody on here has something interesting and if I'm honest quite cheap (sub £1500) I'd be interested. Maybe even...
Hi there, I have a 350slc chassis 107.023 engine 116.982/4 it currently runs the original 3 speed box but I'm wondering if there is an easyish swap for a 4 speed box and would it improve cruising performance and perhaps fuel economy? thanks
I’m going to buy something a little sporty. Not fond of soft-tops, I’m going to look for a Lexus 430sc, or, staying in-house, an SLC.
I’ve been browsing and the very big issue on the SLC (all 107’s) seems to be sub-frame failure.
In the US forums they refer to an MB recall with...
On my hols last week I could not ignore the handily timed local rally action.........where the first car to draw my interest was this R107 SLC rally car.
There are some pics of the build here:
