McLaren’s MP4-12C sports car, which was introduced 2 years ago, is finally nearing its availability date and the price has been set at ($229,000). The luxury car company hasn’t released a new car model since the release of the popular SLR back in 2003, which they built in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz. Powered with a twin-turbocharged V8 M838T engine that outputs 592 horsepower, the MP4-12C goes from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 220 mph. More looks below.CONTINUE
Swiss car designers Ueli Anliker have taken the Mercedes McLaren SLR 999 and literally upgraded it to gold status. Gold was added to the red body finish, the rims as well as the interior, and to top it off, Anliker threw in ruby stones. With over 11 pounds of gold detail and 600 rubies, this McLaren SLR 999 has an estimated value of ($5.2 million). What do you think, too much gold or just enough? More pics below.CONTINUE
In the mist of a global economic recession, companies all over the world are either merging, selling, or shutting down completely. But some companies are standing tall and doing what they do best- release uncanny luxury sports vehicles. Mercedes Benz is finally unveiling their new SLR the highly anticipated 2009 Mclaren SLR Stirling Moss. This seductively exotic SLR was designed in cooperation with Mclaren and was named after the legendary driver Stirling Moss.
STOP! At this point I think its only right that I call for everyone to stop reading entirely because unless you use $100,000 checks to wipe your mouth at the dinner table there’s no reason to continue onward because this cars just too expensive. Your only chance of seeing this car is on TV or reading about online just as your doing now. Even if you are rich it’s pointless reading any further because the 2009 Mclaren Benz will be limited edition; only a total of 75 will be built worldwide.
This sleek gorgeous work of art is topless with V8 650 horse power, a retractable air-brake, and a 5 speed automatic transmission that enables the driver to max out at 216mph. The 2009 Mclaren SLR will debut this month at the Detroit Auto Show, the funny thing about this is- out of the 75 that are being built none will be allowed in North American market even though the car will be introduced publicly in North America. This makes this vehicle even more exclusive, the auto crisis in the United States must have angered foreign companies and they are punishing us by teasing.
So if you earn an average salary or even above average salary and live in North America I suggest you forget you ever heard about the 09 SLR. Because unless you trip, fall in a undiscovered oil well, and move to Europe-sorry to say this but you are NEVER GONNA GET THIS CAR. Price tag: $1,050,000
