Model SLR Stirling Moss
Mercedes and McLaren, the Stirling Moss was limited to a production run of only 75 examples and continues the Mille Miglia–centric theme of the previous SLR 722 and Roadster 722 S special-edition SLRs. The SLR Stirling Moss began production in early 2009, with all 75 cars produced by December and only available only to SLR owners.
Powered by a 5.4-litre supercharged V8 engine producing 641 hp with 0-to-62-mph sprints achieved in less than 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 350km/h . With a 200kg weight advantage over the previous SLR, performance can only be described as phenomenal. A five-speed automatic gearbox feeds power to the rear wheels, there’s no tricky clutch to contend with and being exposed to the elements only accentuates the feeling of speed.
The carbon fibre monocoque from the SLR has been developed to offer more rigidity with re designed sills and an extra rear cross member, making it one of the most structurally rigid open-top cars ever. However, the exterior is radically different from that of other SLRs and the two-seat cabin has been pared back to essential basics, all trimmed in a mix of carbon fibre and leather.
Built on the 30th May 2009, this example boasts interesting history as it took part immediately after delivery from Stuttgart in the Mille Miglia.
1 of only 4 finished in white and 1 of only 2 boasting the carbon package and halogen lights and with recent maintenance by Daimler AG in April 2015, the car is as one would expect, in excellent condition in every respect.
Stirling Moss (2009)
The SLR Stirling Moss is a limited edition (75 vehicles) of the series, which uses a speedster styling that does not include roof or windscreen. The design is inspired by the 300 SLR race car, and was designed by Korean designer Yoon Il-hun. It was to be the last series of the McLaren SLR built under the partnership between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren, until McLaren announced their own final edition of the SLR in late 2010.
The supercharged V8 engine is rated 650 PS (480 kW; 640 hp). The car’s top speed is 350 km/h (220 mph) with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds. The car is approximately 200 kg (440 lb) lighter than the regular model.
The SLR Stirling Moss began production in June 2009, after SLR Roadster’s production ended in May 2009. All 75 cars were produced by December 2009. The SLR Stirling Moss was available only to SLR owners.
The vehicle was unveiled at the 2009 NAIAS and Geneva Motorshow.
