    They told us 275 cars they will build. Also - think about the option of a later following Spyder in a even more limited way.

    I know also of about 3 Owners in Germany and 5 more international. But I know of even many more which been turned down. Some are pissed, some others are quiet relaxed.

     


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    I heard that roughly 1400 buyers commited to the car but only 275 will get one, difficult to find the right owners. Apparantly they hired an external counsultancy firm to find a fair and objective selection process (not sure whether this is true).

    The external consulting company been leading through the entire process. The process was not very professional from my point of view. I wished they would have given more information's in between. Also - the various people got their denies on a very different date. Some heard back days after Geneva, some others in June, July, etc. Myself, I just heard back couple of days ago. Means - I really had hope as we been in the cycle until the end. Last not least - if you give a no, I thought it would have been more appropriate making a nice letter instead of an email from an external consultancy.

    Yes you are right, 275 cars. I stand corrected. 250 was the initial estimate but they ended up with 275. Amazing target performance though.

    2.3 to 100km/hr

    5.9 to 200km/hr

    11.2 to 300km/hr.

    Our lead investor was turned down in mid-summer. Massive collection but outside of a 300sl gullwing no MBs of note.

    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Ehhhhh not so pretty. Cool, but doesn't really have the presence of the CLK GTR or a Porsche GT1. No doubt it will decimate everything else (except maybe the AM), and you're getting insane technology for the road, but still not really a looker.

    Looks to have an active spoiler on the rear that isn't up.


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Whoa, cool!kiss

    Could do without the shark fin though, imo. I wonder if they'll send it out for a lap of the 'ring..

    Not pretty indeed, was expecting more of the styling. This is pretty bland?

    Best quote I've seen about its looks; "It’s long, low, and aggressive, looking sort of like a McLaren F1 was fed steroids and cocaine and given a generous jewelry allowance."

    Yeah, saying it's low would be an understatement. It looks waist high.


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Yuck.


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Don't you mean  "meh"....?


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Meh means underwhelming. This isn't underwhelming by any means, it's just pretty fucking ugly. Just give me a CLK GTR with a 2018 interior and all the fancy new mechanical bits.


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    You have to give the Mercedes designers a standing ovation for having used Dieter's mustache as inspiration for the front facia. Ingenious indecision

    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    But why does it have an Audi's rear lights? Similar to the ones on the A7


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Love the seats and interior in general.


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Looks like they crossbred a 918 with an AM Valkyrie and a Chiron, and then it didn't come out as well as expected :-P

    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Just change the front and rear lights and put a Porsche badge on it. 


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Definitely, the best way to describe it is meh in terms of design. Performance-wise is other story but it looks like a freaking Lotus.


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Sorry gents, but for me this is one of the ugliest designs in recent car history. Period. mail

    It may be technically brilliant (though I still can't see the attraction of a 1.6-V6-Turbo), but IMO everybody who wanted one in the beginning and didn't get one in the end should consider himself lucky. angrysmiley
