A Video Reminder Of The SLR’s Brutality

Produced from 2003-2009, the Mercedes SLR McLaren is a supercar with an impeccable pedigree. Made in England with a hand-built engine and a carbon fiber body, this car could accelerate to 60 mph in around 3.4 seconds from the almost 620 horsepower produced by its supercharged, 90-degree V8. The SLR has since been superseded by the SLS, but certainly not surpassed. And despite a projected run of only 3,500 units, the SLR spawned several variants. Among them was a roadster edition, the 722 editions and the Stirling Moss and McLaren special editions. These were produced in very limited numbers with prices topping more than a million dollars in many cases…. Continue Reading »

Spotted! The Mercedes McLaren SLR 722

If ‘old’ cars capture your attention, then you must be like Shmee150 who took this video. He spotted the McLaren Mercedes SLR 722 in the streets of London and he knew instantly that it is Youtube-worthy. The car has black light-alloy wheels that are 19-inch in size. The badge in red that says “722” adorns the car, the slightly modified tail lights made the good-looking car to appear even better. Performance wise, the car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 300km/h in 21.4 and 200km/h in 10.2. Top speed is at 209mph which is tad faster than the standard SLR (by 1.9 mph). For an older… Continue Reading »

McLaren Received a Ticket from an Officer in a smartfortwo

What happens if you race the McLaren, one of the fastest cars in the world, with another Daimler car, the smart? Well, no doubt, McLaren will win. In a very ironic situation however, the smartfortwo seems to have won. But this is not a race. A police officer in the smallest and cheapest car in Daimler’s umbrella was seen writing a ticket for a parked Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster in Beverly Hills. What happened when the owner of the stickered car saw the ticket is unknown. Well, there is nothing he can do right? It’s just funny, at least once, the smartfortwo wins.

Video: SLR McLaren is a sitting duck

This is embarassing. Imagine scooting around town in your badass Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren only to end up being handed a parking violation ticket by an officer driving a Smart car. In case you’re wondering, a new SLR McLaren held a price tag of just over half a million dollars during its time. It seems the wealthy owner, self-titled “Prince of Germany”, was simply begging to get caught by displaying his ride in the wrong place at the wrong time. The officers just happened to be driving along Beverly Hills, California in their Smart Fortwo when, lo and behold, there sitting in a no-parking zone was the 617hp supercar dressed up… Continue Reading »

McLaren Mercedes SLR 722 GTB by Sievers

Launched at the 2011 Essen Show is this McLaren Mercedes by Sievers. Based on the already powerful SLR 722, Sievers has bumped the output of this car to a heady 814 horsepower. And while they were at it, the tuner also found enough weight savings to trim the car down to the 1,500 kilo range. Sievers hasn’t released any numbers but horsepower calculators you’ll find online predict a sub-3.5 second 0-60 mph time.  Although these numbers would make you think that this is a race car, it is in fact street legal. The only numbers the chief executive officer would release were the top speed of over 350 kilometers per… Continue Reading »

A Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren can’t save you from danger

An unidentified Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren car owner in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, was speeding through a corner and suddenly lost control going head to head with the pavement. As you can see on the picture above it is not a pretty sight. Apparently, that man wanted to dance with the devil and the devil, not so politely, rejected the invitation by slamming him to a stop. Miraculously, the man was unharmed during this debacle. Hope this serves a lesson to all of us. Most especially the reckless drivers, who doesn’t know the meaning of the phrase “Slow Down”. Speeding is one of the biggest factors that contributes to car accidents and… Continue Reading »
