Spy photographers captured images of Mercedes-Benz next performance model previously known known as its “baby SLS” - the SLC.

The SLC was spotted at Mercedes’ Nurburgring test base in Germany.

Codenamed the C190, the prototype is heavily camouflaged but appears to be influenced by the SLS. Notable styling highlights include a long bonnet, conventional doors and a sporty rear end with dual exhausts.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but previous reports indicated the model could be powered by a twin-turbo 4.0 V8 capable of 361kW. There have also been rumours about a Black Series variant which could produce 436kW.

The SLC is expected to be launched in 2015.

      The model is SLC(C190) just like the 3 series called the E36-E90 then F30. The old SLC was designated C107.
