I'm not about this life anymore... I'm down to 2 or 3 near death experiences a week

Having a kid really changes ALOT of things. I still really enjoy driving my car to and from work but I lost all ambition to dump money into it. Gave up that Tokyo drift lifestyle too haha rarely have the car sideways anymore or really test it limits.

Soon I'll be in a position where having a dd and a "weekend car" would b much more feasible...

The cla and an older stang gt or g35 will prob be the move by next summer

Not point in making a thread for this yet because no pics have surfaced but since this is the baby CLS, I figure I can sneek in this discussion the baby SLS, the SLC (911 fighter/killer?).

Quote:
Mercedes insiders have revealed to Britain’s Car that the SLC will be available with no less than three engine options. At launch, the standard motor will be a version of AMG’s upcoming twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 with 485 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. A range-topping model, the SLC S, will feature a hotter version of the 4.0-liter that produces 585 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of twist.

Roughly a year after the SLC hits the market, Mercedes will introduce an entry-level model, powered by a 333-horsepower V6, that will compete with the standard Porsche 911 Carrera. All variants will send power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The SLC will ride on a shortened version of the SLS AMG’s platform, although the latter car’s signature gullwing doors will be replaced with conventional units to improve structural rigidity and reduce mass – overall, the SLC is expected to weigh in at around 3400 pounds.

Though prices from foreign markets rarely translate directly to MSRPs in U.S. showrooms, it’s worth noting that the Mercedes insiders have revealed tentative SLS pricing information for the British market. The V6 model will reportedly start at 70,000 pounds ($110,474), the standard V-8 will command 80,000 pounds ($126,256) and the high-performance V8 will run 115,000 pounds ($181,493).

The SLC is slated to launch in V8 form in 2015, while the V6 model will follow in 2016.



Even if it isn't a gullwing, this car will be beautiful like the SLS. I just wish it starts at $80k like the 911. A V6 with 350hp at around $85k-$90k will sell like crazy.

That is one of the coolest things in the SLS, they probably fear that it'll take sales away from their $200k car, probably cost a lot to put one in a car too and could bump that price an extra $10-$15k. Plus I have read a few complaints about it and that the traditional door on the roadster was just much better and easier. I personally would prefer the gullwing but damn make the SLC as nice as SLS and price it right and people would flock to it instead of the R8.

The SLC is looking good.

I feel like they took the CLS500 and shrunk it. I have mixed feelings about this one
post #224 of 404
Man that slc looks so sick. Not sure how it will compete with whips like the r8 and Maserati gt. regardless it will be on my radar in a few years

Nah, you guys are crazy. Plenty of men are driving around in FRS/BRZ these days and that thing is barely bigger than a Miata. Lost men drive the TC, 1-Series, A3, Golf, etc... All compact cars. This car is probably about the same size as a TSX, IS, I mean this is already 2" longer than the current C-Class (C-Class = 180" vs CLA = 182").

brz, frs, a3, golf, tc...those are all tuner cars.

frs and brz are strictly cars for tuners..that's why they're lightweight and rwd.

This benz is 208 hp pig. Big difference.

What are these things gonna cost when u tack on options..40K? No thanks..get a TL, a3, is250 with that.

So what if all those are tuner cars, what does that have to do with "only females buying the CLA if it's too small"? Everyone that buys those cars are tuners? Golf is one of the best selling VW cars, you telling me only tuners buys those cars? I see plenty of females driving Golfs/Rabbit too.

Who says you have to option it out either? IS250 starts at $35k now bonestock, those optioned out is also going to hit $40k easy. Same with the TL. The CLA starst at $30k, at $40k, that will include all the option possible.

car is camo'd though so you can't even really tell how it'll look with all the details though. i think the car is gonna take away mad sales from the SL which has personally always been a favorite of mine.
