Yeah I believe this was posted some time ago in the SLC section.
But pricing it significantly more than the SLK/SLC will take away one of its biggest strengths... price of entry. Add into that the fact that any convertible variant will most likely be soft top and... yeah.. Then theres the whole turbo 4cylinder aspect.
I cant even really classify it as an SLK replacement. The SLK will be dead. This is its own thing. If they had MARKETED the SLK better, given it more showroom space instead of filling dealerships with C and S classes, and updated the interior, I bet it would have sold mich better. Dealerships dont even try to show you SLCs. You have to go looking for them. SMFH.
