With each having an enviable racing record, few partnerships in the automotive world have been more fruitful. Mercedes-Benz had been supplying engines to McLaren in Formula One since the mid-1990s, and over the course of the following 15 years, McLaren F1 cars racked up numerous wins. Mercedes-Benz eventually acquired 40 percent of the McLaren Group, and at this time, the two companies produced their first road car together, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Rather than creating an all-out, no-compromises supercar, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren decided to go a slightly different route. Instead of placing the engine in behind the cabin, the car had a front-mid-engine layout, with the engine sitting behind the front wheels and just ahead of the cabin. This not only helped to improve the SLR’s handling by giving it near-perfect weight distribution, but this also gave the car a rather spacious boot and cabin, which was not common in cars boasting such performance credentials

The SLR McLaren is powered by a hand-built 5.4-liter V-8 fitted with a Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger. As the car could produce 617 brake horsepower at 6,500 rpm, it goes without saying that acceleration was phenomenal, with a dash from 0 to 60 mph taking just 3.8 seconds. Of course, a car with such impressive speed credentials also requires an equally impressive braking system. An automatic airbrake and Mercedes-Benz’s Sensotronic “brake by wire” system assist the massive carbon-ceramic disc brakes and help bring the SLR McLaren down from 120 mph to a stop in less than 240 feet.

This Mercedes Benz SLR was factory finished in the classic Crystal Laurite Silver Paint complemented by the 300SL Red Leather interior which is a timeless combination. This modern supercar comes factory standard with sport-tuned suspension, electronic stability control with traction control, 19-inch turbine design wheels, Bi-Xenon high-intensity headlights, carbon-fiber sport seats with leather trim, dual-zone climate control, Bose sound system, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, aluminum interior trim and six airbags. With only 3,500 miles on the odometer, this car has been collector owned since new and driven sparingly.  Most recently the car underwent a complete no expense spared major service including plugs by Mercedes-Benz. Also included with the car are the original owner’s manuals, service receipts and battery charger.

Though the partnership between McLaren and Mercedes-Benz to produce a road car was a brief, it was also a spectacular moment that may never occur again. With only 3,500 miles on the odometer and being collector owned since new, this SLR is the perfect candidate for any serious collector.  Given the significance of this venture, there is no doubt that this is the moment in time when a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren should be considered for one’s collection.
