New Mercedes S-Class to get V12 engine after all - report
But the Maybach GLS isn't getting it.When Mercedes-AMG unveiled the S65 Final Edition at the Geneva Motor Show back in March, many believed it represented the end of the road for the mighty V12 engine. However, it appears that’s not the case as the powerhouse is set to make a comeback in the next-generation S-Class. Speaking with GT Spirit at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China, Daimler’s chairman Ola Källenius shared the good news – the V12 is not dead.
Mercedes -Benz has announced it will end production of its SLC convertible later this year, and has revealed the SLC Final Edition to commemorate its end.
The 2020 Mercedes -Benz SLC Final Edition bids adieu to the two-seater roadster that has been on sale for nearly 23 years.
The Final Edition Premium costs £3,795 more than the Final Edition, and for that you get a reversing camera, panoramic roof, high-functionality LED headlights, a wind deflector and online features. The AMG 43 model, which costs from £49,855, also gets a Harmon Kardon stereo.
Two versions of a 2.0-litre petrol engine, a 181bhp SLC 200 and 242bhp SLC 300, are available. They manage up to 40.4 and 37.2mpg respectively. The Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 has a 3.0-litre V6 with 385bhp, and its 32.5mpg figure is somewhat justified by its 4.7-second 0-62mph time. The SLC 200 comes with a six-speed manual as standard and a nine-speed automatic gearbox as an option, while the auto gearbox is standard on the SLC 300 and AMG 43.
