Spies Spot a New Mercedes Sports Car Prototype

News sources say that a new sub-SLS AMG Mercedes sports car prototype has been spotted recently. Being only a prototype, there are no definite predictions regarding when will the car finally make its debut or if its end product will even see the light of day. According to Autoblog, the new SLS AMG prototype appeared to be smaller than the current SLS AMG model of the famous German automaker. However, it does retain some of the car’s signature looks from the hood all the way to the back and even to the chassis. It did ditch the gullwing doors though and it seems like it barely has enough room for… Continue Reading »

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 The SLR has since been superseded by the SLS, but certainly not surpassed.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

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 »

RENNTech SLR Shows Extreme Performance From Minimal Mods

Some people just have no respect for the Mercedes engineers who spend hundreds, if not thousands, of hours testing and tuning the carmaker’s products for the best performance. And that’s actually a good thing, because if there were no tuners like RENNtech who seek to obtain the ultimate performance from cars they lay their hands on, we wouldn’t be seeing this video. Billed as the world’s fastest Mercedes-powered Mercedes, this video shows a RENNtech-tuned Mercedes SLR McLaren doing a 10.31 in the quarter mile. With a trap speed of 136 mph, it’s pretty quick, considering that the mods done to it consisted only of bolt-ons. Combining a smaller supercharger pulley,… 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 »
