The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is the prodigy of the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. From the mid-nineties, Mercedes-Benz began supplying engines to McLaren for their Formula 1 efforts. This led to two decades of numerous podiums and wins for McLaren in F1. In 2000, Daimler AG acquired 40% of the McLaren Group and together they decided to make a statement with their newfound relationship. In 2003, the SLR was conceived and would prove once and for all that McLaren could produce a production road car. Mercedes-Benz would be responsible for the styling while McLaren, under the watchful eye of Gordon Murray, took responsibility for everything else. Murray insisted that their collaboration needed to produce a fine piece of machinery that would be worthy of the SLR acronym (Sport Leicht Rennsport). Car enthusiasts, journalists, drivers and racers will agree they did just that.
The car seen here comes to us from a long-term client who has come to terms that he will no longer drive the car as intended and it is time for it to find a new owner. It is a two owner, 8,250 mile example, and has been serviced and maintained to a high standard. The car boasts a 5.4 liter supercharged V8 with an output of 617 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque. Ceramic composite brakes don each wheel and new tires (all dated '21) are mounted on the car. The car is still in its original colors of Crystal Laurite Silver and a $9,900 optional "Silver Arrow" 300SL Red Leather interior with black carpets and special order XL seats. The records and CarFax indicate consistent services along with a major service in '21 which included new tires, oil, brake fluid, battery, door struts, spark plugs and coil wires. Only under a close inspection are you able to find several minor rock chips due to light use over the years.
Just recently, the SLR was named to Hagerty's "2023 Bull Market List: This year's 11 hottest collector vehicles."
