Mercedes SLC to be called AMG GT instead? New 2014 C190 platform AMG sports car reportedly ditching SLC moniker
Mercedes-Benz can not seem to make up its mind as to what the call the upcoming Porsche 911 rival being designed by AMG
. The SLC name has been thrown around for quite some time now. It would appear Mercedes is ditching that name and going with AMG GT instead. What we do know about the car (internally designated C190) is that it will have a lightweight aluminum structure in the 3200 pound range
and use a new turbocharged M177/M178 4.0 liter V8 direct injected powerplant
The name is not nearly as important as how the car drives or its drivetrain but if Car and Driver gets this wrong BenzBoost.com will be sure to point it out. By all accounts thus far it looks like we should get used to calling the C190 the AMG GT.
