Mclaren Mercedes SLR

After many teaser shots and numerous magazines publishing spy shots of the SLR laden with disguises we now get to see the new monster in all its glory.

The powerful GT car draws upon many of Mercedes classic cars for its design influence. Whether it will be perceived as an object of beauty of extravagence remains to be seen.

Full technical details have yet to be released but it is well known that it will be powered by a 5.4 litre V8 breathed on by AMG. Power will be a monstrous 600bhp.

The SLR will make its official debut in the Autumn.

    I actually like the car the way it is so much so that i actually purchased one and throughly enjoy driving it everyday even if it does cost a fortune in petrol i think it is definately worth it.


    Yes, but would Sir Tom approve?

    The first time I saw one (from the offices, looking down onto the carpark, so not a very good look initially) I thought it was a blinged-up SL55 AMG.

    Kind of sums it up really.

    Im sure this seemed like a good idea for Mc back when they first startedto plan it but the SL55 came along and kind of spoiled the party (a little) ok its more powerful and must be a lot lighter than the SL but it really seems kind of redundant in a way,,,left hand knowing what the right hands doing or what


    hey how can you lot not like the slr omg it is legendary any one the original price?


    and you just looked throught the archives to post that?!
