One of the most important cars to ever appear in the supercar wilderness has been the mighty Mercedes SLR McLaren. Entering the hellish world of the super rich, the SLR successfully tied up the McLaren extreme speed with the fantastic luxury of Mercedes. And it worked great. Even today, the Mercedes SLR McLaren is considered one of the most outstanding vehicles which changed our perception of what speed has to be. Speed ceased to be a dangerous prospect only reserved for bold and courageous. With the SLR, the speed became the norm.
And now, almost 15 years after its introduction, the SLR is still hot and beautiful. Parker from Vehicle Virgins is here to give us the glimpse of this magical car and to introduce us to 10 insane features of the $450,000 Mercedes SLR McLaren.
Everything – from opening a bonnet, to opening the doors and starting up the car is different compared to other “civilian” mobiles. But, what is awesome, it all works and it is all as usable as you’d expect from a regular car. And that is the real magic about the car. It just works – well.
Now, we remember watching that Top Gear video where Clackson tested the car, and then, he successfully set the brakes on fire due to that special feature – automatic braking when cornering. We are quite sure that won’t happen ever in the real world. And we are quite sure Mercedes addressed the problem.
