2017 AMG SLC43 Roadster

Was at the local dealer yesterday and they had a brand new 2017 AMG SLC43 Roadster on the showroom floor. Bright red with about $14K in options for a total MSRP of $75K USD. Looked really hot and I couldn't help but want it.

As soon as we win the lottery I will be buying one.

Lottery or not, get a written guarantee from Mercedes or at least have the dealers kids under threat of incarceration as lifetime garden gnomes should the red paint bubble.

It appears that MB does not know how to do red!

Ditto on the red! !

Get the "offfical" colour name and check online for problems with that colour..

Yes it's good to dream.
I sat down as I'm sure many do with the Mercedes configurator & specified my dream 43 & the price was stupid ... but if I could afford to waste the money & not worry about residual value I might be tempted.
But & here's the but, the principle of placing unnecessary money into the hands of a salesperson & Mercedes offends me
For half the price I could buy the very nice low mileage SLK V8 that's on the forecourt of a local dealer & have the better car.
