The Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC AMG Mampe made its debut in 1978 – as AMG’s sole representative in the European Touring Car Championship, Group 2. A true 2+2 seater, the SLC measured itself against other, well, coupé sedans of the BMW CSL type. From a marketing point of view, this was also a clever choice.

Mercedes-Benz is a global automobile manufacturer and a division of the company Daimler AG. The brand is known for luxury vehicles, buses, coaches, and trucks. The headquarters of Mercedes-Benz is in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
