Rumors of a new Mercedes supercar called the SLC have been around for a while now, but just recently, Drive.com.au caught some spy shots of a prototype with is gullwing doors open.

Apparently, the 21st-century version of 1950s Mercedes 300SL ‘Gullwing’ will go on sale in 2010 – with the goal of matching the world’s fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron. That’s a pretty substantial goal, and it’ll have a pretty substantial pricetag: $650,000.

Let’s put that in perspective. The Bugatti Veyron can accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds, and hits a top speed of 250mph. Even though the the Mercedes will probably be limited at around 200mph, they’re still looking to match it’s the Veyron’s acceleration performance. Good Luck with that.
