The Return of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

Philipp Weber December 3, 2010

A great deal of excitement and thrill is expected with the return of the Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren under the name: McLaren SLR Edition. According to a report of Autoblog Germany, 25 units will be produced for the market by Mclaren.

The come backing Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren which was displayed at the Essen Motor Show, has a more attractive redesigned front bumper with oversized air intakes and a new type of mesh grille. The rounded shape side air vents has a new layout giving it a sportier look, and add to that, the new rear diffuser for its aerodynamics.

The power plant is still expected to be the same supercharged 5.4 literV8 engine with 626 horses in it with a peak torque of 780 Nm (575 lb-ft) capable of doing 0 to 62 mph sprint in 3.8 seconds. McLaren has not released any details yet about the car, so an official confirmation on the project should say if there are any tweaks done on the engine.

The project is to show competition on how the performance-delivering job is supposed to be done. The development is some sort of a customer tuning project and it seems McLaren would like to keep info in the wraps. Meanwhile, let’s stay on the sidelines and be on the look out for that official confirmation.
