Expect two trim levels for the twin turbo V8 one with 485 horsepower aimed at the Carrera S and then an SLC S trim model with 585 horsepower set to match up against the 991 Turbo. A dual clutch transmission will be standard as in the SLS AMG.
Pricing will start in the $120k range and move up from there depending on trim and options. The platform is known as C190 internally.
If the projected 3400 pound weight is met Mercedes will have a hit on their hands. Great stuff Mercedes-Benz and AMG! Don't forget a Black Series variant to take on the GT2 either!
