    Default McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

    Officially Official: McLaren SLR Stirling Moss to bow in Detroit

    Things got just a bit brighter for the Detroit Auto Show. Mercedes-Benz will officially unveil what will surely be one of the most attention-grabbing cars in Cobo Hall, the 2009 McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. The boldly styled Merc will be the last vehicle built under the partnership with McLaren, and even at a cost of €750,000 Mercedes should have no trouble finding buyers for the 75-car allotment. Each will feature full carbon fiber bodywork wrapped over the standard version, a 650-hp supercharged 5.5-liter V8 and the five-speed automatic transplanted from the SLR 722. Despite lacking any sort of roof or proper windscreen, the Stirling Moss can still achieve a top speed of 217 mph and can reach 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Other unique features include "swing-wing" doors, a retractable air brake that can be operated manually and a two-piece tonneau cover (stored in the trunk) that can cover the entire cockpit or just the passenger seat. Check out the gallery below for high-resolution images, and expect plenty more when we see the car live in Detroit.

    Stunning! I do think they need to do take more from the concept drawings of the rear rather than what they've actually done.
    I'm a bit mental.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Perhaps it has a big nose because the car is somehow and alcoholic?

    Looks like my ambulance is getting full, we better call another.

    It's pretty awesome, don't see how you guys can disapprove... This is what a supercar should be, madness redefined. And what better swansong than this for the SLR?

    Maybe we should trick the driver of our ambulance into letting us drive it to the Cobo, right into that thing.

    I just can't get over the awfulness of it.

    I don't know about Moss, but I'd be embarrassed to have that named after me.
