Quote:
Instead of replacing the existing SLS with a like-for-like model, the new car will be smaller in order to allow it to more readily compete with the Porsche 911.

Both coupé and cabriolet models of the front-engined, rear-drive SLS successor are set to be offered, with a mooted price tag of between £80,000 and £120,000. Originally thought to be badged the SLC, it is now understood that the model will not have an 'SL' prefix.

Set for a launch in late 2015, the new sports car is hoped to help Mercedes appeal to a wider market. Codenamed C190, it is predicted to sport a more contemporary appearance than the retro-inspired SLS as part of the new Mercedes push to attract younger buyers.

I can totally imagine Bane doing rounds of Gotham city in this.

Good thinking. The current generation R231 SL still weighs close to 2 tonnes!
