South Africa might seem a strange place to launch a 200-mph exotic sports-GT car that will find owners mainly in the U.S. and western Europe. More so when you consider that the most significant achievement by an MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN model was in Italy, at the Mille Miglia event of 1955.But MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN has conducted operations in South Africa for more than 45 years, including complete vehicle assembly. More important, the weather in mid-November is fabulous.
MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN Piloting these left-drive-only coupes in a right-hand-drive market took only a short adjustment, leaving us free to enjoy the MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN addictive power against the spectacularly scenic backdrop of the Cape mountains.In MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN the audio soundtrack wasn't bad, either, with a muted but shrill scream of a twin-screw Lysholm blower accompanying a distinctly staccato roar from the 617-hp V-8's side pipes every time the driver stabbed the pedal.

Each of the MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN engine's cylinder banks enjoys a stream of condensed intake air from separate intercoolers, together producing a torque curve quite similar to the profile of Cape Town's Table Mountain. MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN already 440 pound-feet of torque by 1500 rpm, and well over 500 pound-feet between 3000 and 5000 rpm. This lends mind-boggling elasticity to the SLR, with passing performance that has to be felt to be appreciated.
We've become fairly accustomed to huge output from AMG-built engines, but most of those are housed in conventional steel models weighing quite a bit more than the 3800-pound, carbon-fiber-bodied MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN. This isn't exactly svelte when one considers that carbon fiber weighs half as much as steel. Mercedes claims 3.8 seconds for the 0-to-60-mph scramble, and we think that might be a conservative estimate.

  • MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN has carbon-fiber structure, produced in an all-new facility in Woking, England, is the real story of the MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN, and it celebrates the relationship between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren in the Formula 1 circus. Under McLaren's management, this new plant conducts the high-tech assembly procedures that will give birth to 3500 examples of the MERCEDES BENZ SLR MCLAREN over the next seven years.
    This carbon-fiber road car exploits that material's amazing strength and feathery weight for high performance and safety. The entire body is a composite molding, with beautiful front and rear aluminum subframes bolted and bonded to the tub to mount the engine and undercarriage. Below the tub is a completely flat underbody.
    True to its purpose, the Stirling Moss SLR bares similarities to the renowned Mercedes 300 SLR. Its
