Sports Car Of The Year – Mercedes SLC 300 AMG

Why do people buy sportscars? Too many reasons. You, of course, want performance. You want something that looks fast. You want to make a statement. You want to be seen making a statement. Well there’s only one sportscar that can deliver on all of these and it’s the SLC by Mercedes-Benz. Forget all this talk about ‘lifestyle’ SUVs, the SLC 300 does lifestyle and seasons its with substance and fun tech.

When you’re done with the outside world, the Magic Sky Control instantly turns its glass sunroof opaque and the Harmon Kardon sound system takes over. The 2-litre powerplant delivers everyday economy and yet will still get you from 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds. The SLC wins because it not only ticks the performance box, but every other box as well.
