2009 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

Monday, April 4, 2011
Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, the 2009 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is the last car to be built under the Benz and McLaren partnership. Only 75 of these beautiful cars will be built, I’m sure most of them are spoken for. The Stirling Moss costs €750,000 (over $1,000,000)! It is powered by a 650-hp supercharged 5.5-liter V8 and a 5-speed automatic transmission. The car does NOT feature a roof or windscreen, however it is capable of doing speeds up to 217 mph and can reach 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. It does sport; “swing-wing” doors, an air brake, and a 2-piece tonneau cover that can cover just the passenger seat or the entire cockpit. I wonder what this car would cost once it becomes a collector.
