The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren concept was a belated continuation of the legendary 300 SLR Coupé of the 1950s, the new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is the perfect synthesis of tradition and innovation.

Breathtaking performance, striking looks and the use of lightweight materials such as carbon fibre for the chassis make the SLR a true super car.

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is the culmination of several years work between the two respected companies.
The vast 5.4 litre supercharged V8 engine is mounted in the front, dictating the cab rearward styling of the SLR. Access to the SLR is gained through impressive swing wing doors hinged along the 'A' pillar.

The SLR draws on McLarens F1 experience and uses underbody aerodynamics to suck the car to the road.

The SLR also uses a variable geometry spoiler placed at the extreme tail of the car, this raises to a 10° angle at 59 mph and during heavy braking it increases to 65° to keep the rear end planted firmly to the road.
