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 The SLR has since been superseded by the SLS, but certainly not surpassed.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.

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 »

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 »
