Lot #1394 - Built as a collaboration between the world championship-winning Formula One team McLaren and legendary auto manufacturer Mercedes-Benz AMG. Quoted by the manufacturer as being capable of 206 mph top speeds. Features an all-carbon-fiber monocoque structure with a front/mid-engine layout. The SLR's SOHC 5.4-liter V8 engine was hand-built by AMG and features a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger with dual intercoolers producing 617hp. The transmission is an AMG Speedshift R 5-speed with three manual modes. Factory options include carbon-fiber interior trim, carbon ceramic 15" and 14" brake rotors with 8-piston/4-piston red brake calipers, 19" turbine factory wheels and SLR-embossed floor mats. The SLR has one of the most interesting exhaust configurations, with vertical mufflers exiting just behind the front wheels for mass centralization. Even more extraordinary, the SLR features an active Air Brake in the form of a rear spoiler that tilts forward into the vertical position under high speed braking. Mercedes-Benz quoted near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution and .97g skid pad stats. Produced in the outstanding color combination of Crystal Laurite Silver with 300SL red semi-aniline leather, it comes complete with all books, two keys and clean CARFAX.
