EXTERIOR
Inspired by the legendary 300 SL the Mercedes McLaren SLR has become an icon in its own right. Finished in Crystal Galaxite Black paint this example presents beautifully, with the metallic shade enriching the fluid and elegant lines of the car.

The long bulged bonnet features a prominent nose with an integrated Mercedes star and runs back towards the windscreen where two silver grilles are fitted either side, these are dwarfed by the size of the side fitted vents and combined do their best to remove heat from the engine bay and cool the aggressively designed duel exit exhausts located just behind the front wheels. Add in the deep lower rear air diffuser (a reason for the side exit exhausts) and the styling package perfectly combines form and function.

INTERIOR
Echoing the elegant styling cues of the coachwork, the cabin of the SLR is a wonderfully refined affair. Opening the gullwing doors reveals a space filled with carbon fibre and luxurious red leather, contrasted beautifully by brushed metal details throughout the cabin. Situated millimetres from the floor the low slung bucket seats are wonderfully supportive, perfectly fitting the GT/Supercar character of the SLR.

Discreetly placed behind a badged blanking plate is the factory Becker headunit which provides navigation and Bluetooth, in addition to climate control along and generous selection of other standard equipment that provides all the essentials for a luxury grand tourer.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The SLR engine is a hand built 5,439cc supercharged all-aluminium alloy V8, with a twin-screw supercharger producing 0.9 bar (13 psi) of boost.

McLaren took the original concept car designed by Mercedes and moved the engine 1 metre behind the front bumper, and around 50 centimetres behind the front axle to improve handling, to accommodate this they optimised the design of the centre firewall.

Power is fed to the rear wheels via an AMG five-speed automatic transmission with three manual modes. For durability Mercedes selected a five-speed transmission rather than their seven-speed gearbox which was more complex and used more parts.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The SLR sits on stunning model specific 19″ Turbine Alloys which all present in excellent order with no marks or scuffs to note. These are wrapped in matching Michelin Pilot Supersport tyres, the fronts just replaced.

Contrasting the dark coachwork the vibrant red spokes show through the turbine spokes, as do the huge carbon ceramic brakes which bring the SLR to a halt with ease.
