That Mercedes-Benz is preparing a new coupe is no secret, and spy photos obtained in recent weeks have revealed more than a few key details.

Where the new model would fit into the family is unclear, however. It's possible the so-called 'SLC' will slot in below the larger SLS - but it could also be an all-out replacement.

This week, a new CarSales report suggests that the SLC will indeed be sold alongside the SLS, entering as a more affordable (and more nimble?) alternative to the top-shelf model.

Although the report offers no source for its information, a two-car standalone AMG range is not hard to imagine - and there's good sense in spreading development costs across models.

It is believed that the new model shares many components and architecture elements with the larger SLS, including a large portion of its aluminium spaceframe chassis.

Of course, even if the two cars are sold together, the current SLS AMG is likely to be retired part-way into the new model's lifetime - but likely not before a new SLS emerges.
