Editor's Choice: Hamann Volcano SLR
Each country has its own automotive style. And if there’s one thing that typifies the streets of the Arab Emirates, then it’s a customised German supercar. Show Motors LLC in Dubai currently has a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in extrovert Hamann dress.
When Mercedes specialist Hamann is asked to transform an expensive SLR McLaren supercar, the order doesn’t often come from the Middle East. In this case, the so-called Hamann Volcano SLR is a factory-spec SLR given an extensive carbonfibre aerodynamics package, along with modifications to the eight-cylinder AMG engine to boost power from 626 to 700HP, and torque to a whopping 830Nm. On top of that, the interior is the recipient of much additional carbonfibre and alcantara. Show Motors LLC currently has a fairly priced and modest-mileage example of the SLR Volcano for sale; and can provide a worldwide delivery service.
