Please email concierge@fusionluxurymotors.com or call 1-818-773-8181 About the SLR: The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is a grand tourer jointly developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive, built in Portsmouth and the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England and sold from 2003 to 2010. SLR is an abbreviation for Sport Leicht Rennsport (Sport Light Racing), an homage to the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR which served as the cars inspiration. The car was offered in coup, roadster, and a limited edition speedster variants. At the 1999 North American International Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz presented their Vision SLR concept, inspired both by the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coup of 1955,which was a modified Mercedes-Benz W196S race car, and the design of closed-wheel Formula One cars, a field in which Mercedes had prior experience, providing engines for McLaren bodies, as Mercedes-Benz were already designing and developing powertrains and electronics for McLarens Formula One Team. The production version of the car was unveiled to the general public on 17 November 2003. This version was a bit different than the concept, the adjustments included more complex vents on both sides of the car, a redesigned front with the three-pointed star plunged in the nose and red tinted rear lights. The SLR features Sensotronic Brake Control, a type of brake-by-wire system. The brake discs are carbon-ceramic units and provide better stopping power and fade resistance than steel discs when operating under ideal working temperature. Mercedes-Benz claims these discs are fade resistant to 2,200 F. The front discs are internally vented and measure 14.6 in diameter; eight-piston calipers are used. Rear discs are 14.2 in diameter with four-piston calipers. During wet conditions the calipers automatically skim the surface of the discs to keep them dry. The SLR features active aerodynamics; there is a spoiler mounted on the rear integral air brake flap. The spoiler increases downforce depending on its angle of elevation or angle of attack. At a set speed, the spoiler/brake automatically raises to 10 degrees, when demanded via the drivers switch, the elevation can be increased to 30 degrees for increased rear downforce, at the cost of increased steady state drag. The car has a flat underbody and a rear diffuser for improved downforce. Due to this, there was no other place for the exhaust pipes to exit, other than the sides of the car, making it another unique feature of the SLR. The SLR has a 511 lbs hand-built 5.4 L. supercharged all-aluminum alloy, SOHC 3 valves per cylinder 90 V8 engine, with a compression ratio of 8.8:1. The engine is lubricated via a dry sump system. The Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger rotates at a maximum of 23,000 rpm and produces 13 psi of boost. The compressed air is then cooled via two intercoolers. The engine generates a maximum power output of 617 HP at 6,500 rpm and maximum torque of 575 lbf ft between 3,250 to 5,000 rpm. McLaren took the original concept car designed by Mercedes and moved the engine 39.4 behind the front bumper, and around 19.7 behind the front axle. They also optimized the design of the center firewall. The car uses carbon-fiber reinforced plastic construction in order to keep the weight low. The SLR could attain a top speed of 208 mph Car and Driver achieved a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 3.4 seconds, and a 1 4 mile time of 11.2 seconds at 130 mph. Car and Driver also achieved top gear acceleration 30 50 mph and 50 70 mph times of 1.7 and 2.4 seconds, which are the fastest ever recorded by the magazine in a production car. The SLR also pulled 1.13 g on the skid pad. The magazine suggested that the times may be even lower if temperatures were lower. Motor Trend tested the SLR and achieved a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.3 seconds in April 2006.
