The Model: Born out of the Mercedes Vision SLR concept of 1999, the SLR McLaren emerged as a joint venture between Mercedes­-Benz and McLaren as an outgrowth of their F­1 partnership. The result was a technological tour de force that brought many F­1 developments to the street. The carbon-­ceramic braking system boasted eight-­piston calipers for the front and received assistance at high speeds from a deployable aerobrake. The SLR makes extensive use of lightweight materials yet delivers all the luxuries expected of a modern Mercedes. After releasing a mere 2,000 examples of this incredible car, Mercedes­-Benz and McLaren parted ways. Most great cars spawn only one successor. The SLR gave rise to two great cars, the Mercedes­-Benz SLS AMG and the McLaren MP4­12C.

The Car: This SLR is effectively a brand new car. With only 4,300 miles over ten years, this SLR is virtually flawless. Amenities include a Bose surround-­sound stereo system with six­-disk changer, F­1 paddle shift, rain-­sensing wipers, dual-­zone climate control and adaptive cruise control. Also included are the optional 19­-inch silver forged aluminum wheels. This car is absolutely spectacular in Crystal Laurite Silver exterior with a flawless leather interior in 300 SL Red. Carefully stored and maintained since new, this is an incredible opportunity to secure perhaps the finest GT Supercar of the past decade.
