The McLaren SLR is Mercedes answer to the Ferrari Enzo and Porsche Carrera GT with performance statistics to match those two Supercars. This Mercedes is a showcase of cutting-edge technology, not only for its incredible engine but also for its novel use of carbon fiber and other exotic innovations.
It catapults to 60 mph from rest in 3.8 seconds and hits a top speed of more than 200 mph.The $450,000 SLR brings together two of the most respected names in the automotive industry: Mercedes-Benz’s in-house AMG performance division supplies a 617-hp supercharged V8, while British firm McLaren Automotive, creator of Mercedes-Benz’s Formula One race cars, designed and hand assembles the car itself at its facility in Working, England.
One dramatic example of technology transfer from Formula 1 racing is the carbon fiber composite material of the new SLR body, which provides rigidity and strength never before achieved in road-going vehicles. Equally impressive is its high level of occupant protection. The SLR is distinguished as the first series production vehicle to utilize a front crash structure made exclusively of carbon fiber. Specially designed to absorb crash energy at a constant rate, the carbon fiber crash structure absorbs four to five times more energy in a severe frontal collision than similar structures made of conventional steel.
The high-performance SLR supercar is one of very few production cars to make use of ceramic brake technology. The brake discs on the SLR are made of a new composite material – a fiber-reinforced ceramic with astounding stopping power, high heat resistance, outstanding structural strength and long service life. The discs weigh less than half that of conventional brakes, and are fitted with eight-piston calipers in front and four-piston calipers in the rear. The brake system alone can decelerate the SLR up to 1.3 g, producing the theoretical equivalent of 2,000 horsepower. In addition, an innovative airbrake in the form of an adaptive rear spoiler in the trunk lid increases downforce, improving stability and braking even further. Under hard braking above 59 mph, the air brake pops up at a 65-degree angle, helping to stop the car from 62 mph is just 114 feet.
The SLR doesn’t compromise luxury and comfort like other supercars do. Truly an exotic car that is drivable on a daily basis.
Production capacity is limited to 500 cars per year for the world. The first SLR rolled off the line in May 2004, and the 1,000th SLR for worldwide production left the building in February 2006. Production was ended in May 2009 for the SLR, with the coupes being 2005- 2006 US models, and the Roadster labeled as 2008-2009 US models.
