Through the Swiss landscape with the SLC Roadster
– A photostory by Christian Kremer for Mercedes-Benz #mbsocialcar –
I took a beautiful little SLC 180 Roadster for a road trip through Switzerland to lake ‘Walensee’. I love the wonderful exterior color called brilliant blue. That’s one of my favorite colors! The weather was perfect for such a Roadster. So I only drove topless.
Put on your sunglasses, start your engine & enjoy the summer!

What I didn’t like so much:
Not a good ride comfort for long travels. In addition to that, i am not satisfied with the fuel consumption.
All in all the new SLC Roadster is a fabulous car for curvy country roads! I really learned to like this little Roadster! It’s a lot of fun to drive it! And I have to say in real life the car looks much better than on pictures! Thanks, Mercedes-Benz, it was a great experience! I enjoyed it very much!
