Premium Super Sports Car

Formula One-derived auto constructor McLaren Cars cooperated with
DaimlerChrysler to produce the Mercedes-Benz SLR, which debuted at the 2003
Frankfurt Motor Show. The long nose/short deck body is built of carbon composite
material, and a powered by an AMG tuned 5.5L V8 screw-type supercharger engine,
located in front position for optimum weight balance. Monstrous power output of
466.8 kw at BSOOrpm (626 hp) and 79.6kgm torque at 3250 - 5000 rpm is handled by
a 5-speed automatic transmission. The car Is capable of amazingly fast
acceleration and super-quick braking thanks to its massive carbon ceramic brake
discs and pop-up rear spoiler. The name SLR (Sports Light Racing) was originally
used on the 1955 sports radng car 300 SLR, and made a comeback with this
Benz-McLaren machine.
