For 2007 Mercedes-Benz added a Roadster version of the range-topping SLR to their sports car line up. The SLR Roadster, like the coupe, is predominantly made of carbon-fiber, a material that endows the SLR with a very high degree of safety as well as extreme torsional stiffness. The top speed of the new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster, which is powered by an AMG V8 compressor engine delivering 617 bhp, is 206 mph, only 1 mph slower than the hard top version.

The Mercedes-Benz Mclaren SLR Roadster's fully retractable top, which blends into the flowing lines of the vehicle is formed from a newly developed material, and is available in three different colors. The top not only guarantees complete suitability for everyday use in all weathers, but also endows the SLR Roadster with characteristics that are unusual in an open top car.

In the wind tunnel, the SLR Roadster has been optimized for high speeds with regard to handling, aeroacoustics and aerodynamics. It likewise employs the aerodynamic concept already known from the coupe version, featuring an airbrake integrated into the access lid and a diffuser in the rear bumper to provide increased downforce on the rear axle.

The roof of the SLR Roadster opens and closes semi-automatically in less than ten seconds. To open, the roof merely needs to be unlocked from the windscreen frame and be briefly raised, after which it folds away electrically. Since an aluminum cover is integrated into its front section, the roof elegantly closes off the top when retracted.

The Mercedes Mclaren SLR Roadster is equipped with a racing-type chassis featuring high-performance carbon-ceramic brake discs, thereby setting extremely high standards. Its front-mid-engine provides for optimum weight distribution. With 617 bhp and a maximum torque of 575 lb-ft, the AMG V8 compressor engine, which is coupled to an AMG Speedshift R five-speed automatic transmission, accelerates the Roadster from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.

The exclusive standard equipment fitted to the SLR Roadster includes semi-aniline-leather-upholstered carbon-fiber bucket seats which can be individually adapted to the driver and front passenger by means of differently sized seat pads; dual-zone automatic air-conditioning; a high-quality BOSE premium sound system; a multifunction sports steering wheel with gear-change paddles, and a navigation system with integral radio and CD player.

The new Mercedes-Benz SLR Roadster, like the coupe, is produced at McLaren's Formula 1 factory in Woking, England.
