Extérieur

The body of the vehicle is constructed completely of carbon fibre. Upon further inspection one notices the immaculate build quality standards that both Mercedes and McLaren are famous for from the fitting of the panels to the stitching in the seats, perfection is the standard. Through the life of this vehicle, that perfection has remained intact, making this perhaps the best condition SLR available on the market today. One of the signature features of the SLR is the butterfly doors, spring-loaded and easy to operate they make a bold statement upon entry and exit. The Crystal Cassiterite Black Metallic paint is immaculate and shines with a deep obsidian glow.

Motorisation

The SLR boasts a 3 valve, 5.5 litre supercharged V8 producing 617 horsepower and 580 lb/ft of torque. Coupled with an AMG Speedshift R 5 speed automatic transmission, the SLR is capable of 0-60mph in a blistering 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 208mph (334km/h), making it the fastest automatic in the world in 2009 and still has the ability to keep up with most modern cars. With just 709km (440 mi) this vehicle has been meticulously maintained and the engine still retains all the power it had eleven years ago and remains fully EPA DOT compliant (CA OBD II). As good as the car performs under 100mph Gordon Murray designed the car to really come into its element at 100mph plus. The handling, traction control and aerodynamics shine at high speed and many have described the feeling at max speed as “rock solid”.

[Hist]

The SLR was produced from 2003-2010 as a joint venture between Mercedes and McLaren, due to their F1 collaborations at the time. Although the car wears the silver star badge the SLR wasn’t made in Germany, but rather at McLaren’s factory in the UK. Designed by the legendary Gordon Murray (the famous designer of the F1 McLaren and Formula One cars from 69-91) this machine serves as a beautiful homage to the infamous Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. Driven by the formidable Sir Stirling Moss, the 300 SLR is known for averaging 100mph for 1000 miles, winning the Mille Miglia in 1955. Upon its unveiling, automotive journalists were quick to call the SLR a GT car, but with its mid-engine mounting and raw performance, one could easily argue for this as a sports car. No matter which side you take, it doesn’t take long behind the wheel before you realize that this car is simply fantastic. This investment-grade example of the Mercedes SLR McLaren is a grippy, agile adrenaline rush. Seriously aggressive yet civilized. Ludicrous yet liveable.
