2008 MERCEDES-BENZ SLR McLaren Roadster
Crystal Palladium Grey with Silver Arrow Leather Graphite Green
The SLR McLaren Roadster made its first official public appearance at the world-famous Festival of Speed at Goodwood, displayed in celebration of AMGs 40 years. Only 520 examples were ever produced worldwide, of which there were only 25 UK supplied cars, including the car we present here.
Upon its launch the SLR McLaren Roadster was deemed by many as the world’s most exciting open car. It accelerates from 0-62 mph in just 3.8 seconds, and on to a top speed of 207 mph. Power comes from a handmade AMG 5.5-litre supercharged V8 engine coupled to an AMG Speedshift five-speed automatic transmission that develops 617 bhp and 780 Nm of torque.
The standard equipment included semi-aniline leather-upholstered carbon fibre bucket seats, dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, Bose premium sound system; a multifunction sport steering wheel with gear-change paddles, and a navigation system with integral radio and CD player. In addition to the standard specification, this particular car was specified with a host of factory optional extras which included; Crystal Palladium grey paint, 19” Turbine wheels, brake calipers in red, Silver Arrow leather, contrast stitching, XL Drivers seat, XL passenger seat, woven ‘composite’ leather on seat centres, SLR logo embossed into headrests, two-tone steering wheel, carbon interior effect trim in black, floor mats with contrasting leather piping in 2nd colour, parking sensors, fire extinguisher and garage door opener.
