So it's a face-lifted R172, as expected. Will the new SLC get an AMG Sport model like the C-Class, I wonder, slotting beneath the V8 SLK55? Either the twin-turbo six or the turbo four would be nice. But I fear neither of those possibilities would be made available with a manual transmission. Too bad...

No reason you can't get the SLK lettering from the dealer parts counter and make the change. I doubt that Mercedes-Benz is also changing the font style along with all the designations. They did this same marketing gimmick twenty years ago, too, when they went from designations like 500SL to SL500. At least at that time, the numbers still had a solid connection to the engine size, which can't be said any more.

It will take a while to start saying ive got an slc !!
I can see K letters on ebay being sold !!

As for the looks of the new model that front end has to be seriously better looking than the 172 .

Or another model to by pass
