There is no roof or windshield to separate the driver and the passenger from the outside world; they enjoy unadulterated high speed thrill with all the attributes of a sprinter.

The new Stirling Moss SLR is also characterized by the most sophisticated technology and breathtaking design that reinterprets the legend of the SLR.

At 478 kW / 650 hp, the Stirling Moss SLR accelerates its 100 km / h V8 supercharged engine in less than 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km / h - no other mass-produced car is at the same time. So open and so fast.

This extreme concept makes the new high-performance sports car a true bearer of the name of British motorsport legend and Mille Miglia record holder Stirling Moss, who drove the legendary Mercedes-Benz SLR race cars from victory to victory in the 1950s.

The exclusive Stirling Moss SLR completes the current SLR family and is limited to 75 units. The price is 750,000 euros. The SLR Roadster will cease to be manufactured at the end of May 2009 as planned, and production of the SLR Stirling Moss will begin in June 2009.

It takes three letters to speed up the heart of car fans: SLR. In the 1950s, the Mercedes-Benz SLR 300 celebrated victory after victory. He won the Mille Miglia and Targa Florio, as well as the tourist trophy. It was directed by the stars of the time: Juan Manual Fangio and Karl Kling - and mainly by the British pilot Stirling Moss.

At ten o'clock, seven minutes and 48 seconds, he still holds the Mille Miglia record. This is why the modern version of the legendary SLR bears the additional words "Stirling Moss" in its name.

How the new Stirling Moss SLR unites the character of today's SLR models with the allure of the 1955 SLR.

The core values ​​of the historic and current SLR models include exciting new design, innovative technology and high class materials. exhibiting perfect craftsmanship and above all: a unique driving experience for all senses.

While the 300 SLR gained traction on racing circuits around the world, the new SLR family member was not designed for the track.

While setting new standards in terms of technology, performance and enthusiasm - just like their ancestors - it is aimed at individuals who have exquisite requirements and cherish very special dreams.

Highly purist concept without roof or windshield Staying fully true to the 300 SLR specifications, the new Silver Arrow equipment is extremely sophisticated yet decidedly spartan without the roof and side windows.

There are only two wind deflectors a few inches high to protect the driver and passenger from airflow. Two body air intakes serve as rollover bars.

With this extreme concept, the new Stirling Moss SLR is visually very different from all other vehicles in the elite sports car class. Like the legendary racing vehicles of the past, the SLR Stirling Moss dazzles with its superlative performance. Accelerating from zero to 100 km / h in less than 3.5 seconds and with a top speed of 350 km / h, this high-performance purist sports car denotes completely new dimensions in the open-topped direction.

And not just because of the impressive performance numbers; every time drivers climb behind the wheel of the SLR Stirling Moss, their senses are approached with unprecedented intensity, conveying a driving experience in its purest and most sensual form.

This automotive thoroughbred thus facilitates the kind of outdoor feel that is totally unique to a moving vehicle.

Exciting design reminiscent of SLR race cars The SLR Stirling Moss, its entire body made of lightweight, thin carbon fiber, represents an independent design concept.

While Mercedes-Benz designers were working on the bodywork of the new SLR Stirling Moss, they were fully aware that they were designing a vehicle with a top speed of 350 km / h. At the same time, this supreme athlete is very reminiscent of SLR racing cars of the 1950s, whose design language never ceases to impress today.

The Stirling Moss SLR boasts an exciting and pronounced arrow shape and is characterized by an elongated hood and a compact, muscular rear. Since there are no windshields, the exterior and interior flow smoothly into one.

The hood also extends from the striking end to the interior, giving the body of the vehicle a distinctly elegant air. Even at a standstill, the sports car radiates such dynamism that the observer immediately falls under its spell. Other attractive features include two air vents behind the driver and the passenger. They carry additional scrollbars, too.
