The Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is the final swan
son for the SLR supercar. The SLR Stirling Moss is a limited
edition version strictly limited to 75 units.
The equipment of the SLR Stirling Moss is extremely sophisticated
and yet at the same time decidedly Spartan, doing without both
a roof and side windows. There are just two wind deflectors
a couple of centimetres in height to protect the driver and
passenger from the airflow. Two air scoops integrated into the
carbon fibre bodywork serve as roll-over bars.
The SLR Stirling Moss sports an exciting, pronounced arrow-shaped
form and is characterised by an elongated bonnet and a compact,
muscular rear. As there is no windscreen, the exterior and interior
flow smoothly into one. The bonnet also stretches from its striking
tip right down into the interior, giving the vehicle body a
distinctly sleek and purposeful appearance.
In case of bad weather the vehicle can be closed by two tonneau
covers which are carried in the trunk.
Powered by a front mounted 5439cc supercharged V8 which develops
650 horsepower, the SLR Stirling Moss can reach 60 mph in just
3.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 217 mph.
Thanks to the high-precision work carried out in the wind tunnel,
the SLR Stirling Moss always generates sufficient downforce
for extremely safe handling. But the driver can also manually
operate the AIRBRAKE in order to increase the contact pressure
