Recent Changes

  • In time for the 2008 Paris Motor Show, Mercedes took the wraps of the latest addition to the soon to depart SLR-McLaren line. The SLR McLaren Roadster 722 S is a droptop version of the SLR 722 Coupe. Like the coupe, the entire car is made from carbon fibre with the exception of two aluminum frames and sports the same hand-built 5.5L supercharged V8 churning 650hp (478kW) and 604lb-ft (820Nm). Pricing will begin at €517,650 which is very expensive however only 150 units will be made which will make this one of the most rarest Mercedes-Benzes and will sure to make it a very sought after car in the vintage car market in, say, 50 years time. So if you've got the cash start lining up on January 1, 2009. It will make a very wise and no doubt fun investment. [1]
