Probably the only car that will ever be produced as a collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren and with a production run of just 500 units, the McLaren SLR Roadster is destined to be a true collectors car. Produced at McLaren's Woking factory, the specification was incredible from the immensely powerful 5.5 litre supercharged V8 developing 626bhp, accelerating from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and reaching an eye watering 207mph top speed, it's the most expensive and fastest convertible Mercedes-Benz has ever produced. Introduced in November 2003, it was Mercedes-Benz's foray into the world of the supercar, alongside such cars as the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari Enzo. While Ferrari and Porsche pursued creating the best all-out supercars that the world had ever seen, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren attempted to create a car that coupled the best aspects of supercars with that of grand tourers. Engineers took care to place the V8 as far back as possible in the chassis in order to improve the car's handling, giving the SLR near-perfect weight distribution. The car leads to a quarter mile in just over 11 seconds, its AMG Speedshift R transmission provides three manual modes to suit the owner's style of driving. Other remarkable technical features include the Sensotronic 'brake by wire' system, carbon-ceramic disc brakes and an automatic airbrake which can bring the SLR to a screeching halt from 120mph to a dead stop in less than 240 feet.

This spectacular example finished the stunning colour combination of Crystal Galaxit Black with leather Silver Arrow Black interior and an Anthracite/black hood. This is a two owner European car which was first registered on 12th June 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal, with just 7,700 miles and eight stamps in the service book, including the important major service carried out in October of 2017 and a more recent serviced this May. This example is, without a doubt, one of the best examples of the Mercedes/McLaren collaboration that could be found in the marketplace and still boasts the factory stickers on the windscreen.

The cockpit area of a SLR is a thing of beauty and to driving is a memorable experience, this example is no different, the engine fired up immediately when requested which is to be expected of such a car. Offered with a host of extras including the limited edition cover, this really must be seen to be appreciated. If you have never driven an SLR, the sound that comes from the V8 out of the slash-cut side exhausts is like nothing you have ever heard or likely to hear again and the driving experience is described as intoxicating. This is a truly unique supercar that any true collector must have owned and, indeed, one that will only rise in value.The service scheduled adhered to as follows on this example;1st September the details below ,592 miles29th June the details below ,319 miles28th July the details below ,519 miles3rd May the details below ,902 miles12th June the details below ,93228th August the details below ,571 miles21st October the details below ,671 milesMay the details below ,690 miles (estimated)
