  • Less than 2,850 miles from new
  • Iconic Crystal Laurite Silver over Silver Arrow Red


Looking to rekindle the romance from its iconic racing cars of the 1950s, Mercedes-Benz joined forces with McLaren for the first time outside of their Formula 1 relationship to create the SLR McLaren. Under its hood was a 616 bhp version of the supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 that Mercedes-Benzs AMG division shoehorned into cars such as the SL 55 and CL 55, albeit highly modified. The engine was revised to use dry-sump lubrication, a Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger, and a pair of intercoolers.

Mercedes-Benz and McLaren chose to utilize a carbon-fiber monocoque for the chassis, providing both incredible strength and rigidity while remaining as lightweight as possible. To optimize weight distribution, the engine was placed over three feet behind the front bumper, giving the car its impressive, long-hooded silhouette. Mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, carbon-ceramic brakes and an innovative brake-by-wire system ensure rapid stopping, even considering the cars touring-ready 3,900 lb curb weight. Gullwing-style doors added a touch of modern flair, giving a stylistic nod to its ancestors.

Testing conducted by Car and Driver magazine proved the SLR to be a world-class performer. The 0 60 sprint was over in just 3.4 seconds, while an 11.2-second quarter mile was achieved at a final speed of 130 mph. Given enough room, the Mercedes-McLaren topped out at an impressive 208 mph.

Produced in July 2005, this SLR was finished in the iconic color scheme of Crystal Laurite Silver over a Silver Arrow Red leather interior. Built to US specifications, it was delivered new to California, according to the accompanying CARFAX report. A previous California title on file shows that from 2012 to 2017 it remained with an owner in the Golden State until being purchased by the consignor. At that point, the car was shipped to Switzerland and remained there ever since, accumulating limited mileage. It still presents in excellent condition throughout, showing less than 2,850 miles from new.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am20.
