    SLR McLaren returns to the market with a new limited edition

    Market to receive 25 units of returning Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

     

    The Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren has returned with a vengeance. In fact, the vehicle is being touted to have shown rivals how to deliver an awesome performance. Autoblog Germany reports that McLaren will deliver 25 new units to the market under the McLaren SLR Edition name. The revived hypercar will be offered with an updated exterior. It features a redesigned front bumper that comes with oversized air intakes and a new type of mesh grille.

    The side air vents have a rounded shape and use a new layout. The vehicle receives several aerodynamic tweaks that include a new rear diffuser. This vehicle, which arrives in the market about a year after it ended production, was showcased at the Essen Motor Show. Actually, McLaren has yet to confirm this project. It may even be possible that this development is a customer tuning project.

    It is believed that the SLR’s technical specs are unchanged. It will still be powered by the supercharged 5.4 literV8 powerplant that produces 626 hp and a peak torque of 780 Nm (575 lb-ft). This engine distributes power to the rear wheels through an automatic five-speed AMD Speedshift transmission. With this unit, the car is capable of sprinting from zero to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and reaching a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).

    +1

    I guess They had some leftover parts enough for making 25 more cars Smiley


    Re: SLR McLaren returns to the market with a new limited edition

     A redesigned front bumper? Well, that changes EVERYTHING!

    I'm sure the SLR is a great car and no offense to anyone here who owns one, but I always found the exterior styling a bit disturbing and out of proportion. 

    But perhaps the new front bumper will change all that for me.

    Too much MP4-C12 seasoning onto a chassis that looked better in original clean form. Looks like a cheap tasteless tuner went at it with poor bondo skills. Horrible.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    You are 100% right!!

    It looks like one of them Mansory's rubbish SLRs.

    Who on earth will pay full price for this now ?? You can get almost new one for 60% less of whatever price they'll be asking for!!

     Word! For the price of an SLR, you can have an SLS and a GT2RS. Not that anyone considering buying this has to think in those terms, but still. Smiley

    Re: SLR McLaren returns to the market with a new limited edition

    To be precise, this modification of existing cars is limited to 25 packages that include coilover suspension and modified bodypanels. If one understands the principle of most "limited editions", the interest in this car cannot be too outstanding.

    It was displayed at last week´s Essen Motorshow.


    Re: SLR McLaren returns to the market with a new limited edition

    I wonder how much will they be charging for it
