The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is the result of a passionate collaboration between the German Mercedes-Benz and the British McLaren. Inspired by the original SLR racing cars of the 1950’s, this modern supercar was propelled into the 21st century using cutting edge F1 technology. When you rent a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren you will find yourself at the wheel of one of the most powerful cars available, super charged with a striking 626bhp 5.4-litre V8 engine that generates a top power of 460 kW/626 hp and maximum torque of 780 Nm from 3250 rpm. It is an exceptional vehicle, boasting top speeds of over 321 km/h (200 mph), accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds and as is to be expected from Mercedes, each engine is hand-built according to the principle of ‘one man, one engine’. The 5-speed automatic transmission is designed for performance, with a Speedshift system in the newest model giving a choice between automatic or manual transmission.
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is built using an innovative low-weight carbon fiber body, and with forged aluminum double wishbone suspension at the front and rear, powerful carbon ceramic breaks and a rear air brake giving incredible stopping distances, this prestigious car is designed for speed. A range of models have been released since its introduction in 2003, including a supreme ‘722 Edition’, the convertible ‘SLR Roadster’ and limited edition ‘Stirling Moss’, which without roof or windscreen and extraordinary styling is an extreme road car. Whichever one you select, driving a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren gives you a rare experience you won’t forget.
