Parked next to a Maybach 62 (nearly 1,000,000€ both cars), in front of a yacht of some rich person of Dubai. The photo is not good because I do not dominate the flash…


The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is a Anglo-German supercar jointly developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive. It is assembled at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey . Daimler owns 40% of the McLaren Group.

Classified as a supercar and compared to cars like the Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Enzo, the presence of the automatic gear box, front mid-engined arrangement and its driving characteristics lead some commentators to classify the SLR McLaren as a Super GT whose closer rivals are the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish and Ferrari 599 GTB. One of the goals of the SLR was to combine both supercar and GT characteristics.

It is the fastest automatic transmission car in the world. SLR stands for "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing). Mercedes-Benz has stated that they will build 3500 SLRs in a span of 7 years, with an annual production of only 500 cars. The car’s base price is £300,000 or 2,000.

Depending on the source, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in approximately 3.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 10.6 seconds, and 300 km/h in 28.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 334 km/h (208 mph), and has once reached a speed of 210 mph (340 km/h).
