    Enjoy this one guys I sure as hell did

    Re: Sweet SLR Video and Pictures

    Thanks for the video, CarreraGtRacer, I hadn't seen a video of the SLR yet

    But I like the car even less now after watching the video. The engine sounds like a truck's engine or a hot-rod (very unsporty), and the sound of slush box and its shifting , looks like he can't get on the power too quick comming out the corners either , the batman style long oversised front, not even a central RPM gauge (I know its an auto but still)... it was OK in the lauch in a straight line though, nice muscle car, though a bit expensive for that (whats its have over an SL55AMG thats worth more than three times over in pricetag? bragging rights?)

    Thank you for your post.
    As much as I like watching expensive cars around the circuit, after watching this video, I'm further convinced. You can pretty much right this car off as a GT.

    That horrible autotranny puts you in the wrong gears pretty much at every apex and exiting the corners. You can also feel the heavy weightshifting of this 'GT' through that chicane. This is a McLaren-improved SL or an SL on hypermode, not a proper sports car, simply as it does not suit it's natural environment, a circuit. I did not enjoy the supercharger sound, either. Sounds like gases whirring out of an exploding oven.

    Now only if I can compare this to a lap by Carrera GT or Enzo... Can someone please post videos?
