360° video drive in the SLC around London.

Experience the new SLC in a 360 degree video driving through London. For the 360° effect, watch this clip on the YouTube App on iOS or Android, or use the Chrome browser in 2160s (4k) resolution on your computer. 20 years on from the birth of its segment, the archetypal compact roadster is to be relaunched with a new name – the Mercedes-Benz SLC – significantly optimised in terms of both technology and an enhanced look. The name change acknowledges the traditionally close relationship with the C-Class, from which much of the roadster’s technology is derived. There are new additions to the model line-up – the sporty top-of-the-line Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 and the entry-level SLC 180.

We headed to Azekel’s home turf where he tested out the car’s 3.0-litre V6 engine during a dark summer night in the city. The model boasts 367 hp and 520 Nm of torque, catapulting the car from 0 to 62.5 mph in just 4.7 seconds.

Looking for a musical equal.

Looking for a musical equal.

The car’s dynamic capabilities needed a musical equal. Azekel is a British singer-songwriter, musician, and producer; he’s released three EPs and recently featured on and co-wrote Massive Attack’s “Ritual Spirit”.

The musician wrote and produced “New Romance” — the track featured in the video — from his East London flat. Layering rich vocals over a downtempo beat, Azekel’s raw sound contrasts the Mercedes’ high-octane performance in the fast-paced capital.
