If you are planning a cross-country drive and want to make it the drive of your life, look for the Mercedes SLR McLaren. A grand tourer built with the passion for racing and with the knowledge gained from racing, the SLR represents a synthesis of the past and future of the Mercedes. It arrives in two body styles - a 2-door coupe and a 2-door roadster. The term 'SLR" stands for 'Sport; Leicht; Rennsport' which translate into 'Sport; Light; Racing'. At $616,000, this grand tourer proved to be one of the top ten expensive cars in 2008 which are street-legal. It has now been succeded by the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

Open the doors and step into a haven of safety, security, luxury and comfort when you have an SLR standing in front of you! The passenger cell has been constructed completely from carbon fiber to protect the passengers in the event of a head-on or side collision. A single piece makes up the window sills, the roof spider, the roof frame and the door apertures. Then, there are the airbags to protect the head, knees and sides. One can also add acceleration skid regulation (ASR), ABS, ESP, sensotronic brake control (SBC) and brake assists (BAS) to the safety features. The multi-functional steering hosts a variety of control buttons which include climate control within the car. Bose audio systems provide a glorious 'sound' output as one sits back in the highly adjustable seats and relaxes. There are standard Mercedes handsets in the armrests with the option of hands-free too!

SLR racing cars of the 1950s have been legendary when it comes to their styling and the SLR McLaren from Mercedes too has adopted the styling elements from them. The remaining elements have been developed from the innovative design language used in the latest Mercedes passenger cars. The basic monococque is built of carbon fiber for ensuring strength, stability and lightness. There are long lines which sweep along the bonnet and seem to originate from the stylish air-exits on the wings. The doors open up like the folded wings of a swooping bird whose tail has been kept broad yet compact. All the aerodynamics has been borrowed from F1 racing to model a car that is both - furious and luxurious!
