The initial production of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in Woking, England resulted in an outstanding supercar that embodies the tradition of the Mercedes-Benz & combines the fascination of the McLaren formula one experience.
The nose section of the SLR is inspired by a Formula 1 race car references McLaren and Mercedes as a race team and engine supplier. It is evident that the Mercedes and McLaren employed all the latest technologies to give the SLR not only a cutting-edge look but to stiffen the competition it faced from the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari Enzo. This is clear in the carbon-fibre monocoque that gives the (SLR) Sport Light Racing it's well deserved name, allowing the vehicle to be lightweight, but providing absolute strength and rigidity. As opposed to creating a no- compromises type supercar, in response, the Mercedes-Benz and McLaren went a different route by placing the engine behind the cabin; the car had a front-mid-engine layout with the engine placed behind the front wheels and ahead of the cabin. This gave the car a rather spacious boot and cabin, which was a rarity for cars with similar performance. The McLaren was powered by a hand-built 5.4 V8 Supercharged engine that produces 617BHP with 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds.
This car is finished in a stunning Crystal Laurite Silver with a 300 SL Red leather with carbon fibre seat back rests. This options on this SLR include BOSE sound system, multifunction steering wheel, Turbine Alloys and only has 31,000 miles from new. It was originally supplied by SLR Centre in Brooklands, Surrey, UK who have also maintained it throughout.
