The SLR McLaren was once Mercedes’ halo car, but the machine remains a very striking and exotic appearance even today.
In other words, it remains one of the most sought-after, hard-to get Mercs out there, even though the Germans produced plenty of units (if you don’t take into account the exclusive, supercar-royalty 722 and Stirling Moss models).
Sporting some “subtle” visual cues, like the humongous Kahn-rims, this Roadster is offered for sale by the British tuning house for £349,875 ($531,162). A “hefty” price tag, but considering the fact that you get a rare car with a lot of racing pedigree and heritage (from both Mercedes and McLaren), with only 9,897 miles (~16,000 km) of strain on its 5,439 cc, 617 hp V8, and – probably – a nice set of wheels, it doesn’t seem so outrageous.
Don’t forget, it may look like a Grand Tourer, but it’s actually a proper supercar, sporting a 19-inch brake system, capable of reaching a max top speed of 334 km/h (207 mph), but not before sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds.
Kahn says this is one of only nine similar cars registered on UK roads and represents “an incredible investment opportunity that will only appreciate in value”. There’s no argue with them, the SLR McLaren is a future classic. By: Carscoops
