Because this test was done by a very respected auto magazine Motortrend and many curb weights for cars on this site come from Motortrend.

...Why would you list a higher weight when a lower one is already added?....

Could you change curb weight to 3858 lbs 1749kg

I've found 2 sources, the uk page for the SLR and an archieved version of the Mclaren website, claiming a DIN curbweight of 1693kg, which correlates perfectly with the other claimed 1768kg which surely is the one that includes the 7kg luggage and 68kg driver and explains why in all the tests done to the car, the testweight was lower than the claimed one while in all cases the testweight is higher due to the added options; both AMS and Sportauto got 1747kg while Autobild got 1755kg.

well if thats true than why sint it called the Mercedes Benz LSR Mclaren? since its a Mercedes Benz, hence the Big ole symbol on the front.


User avatar

Venom beat me to the answer.... its named the way we have it just because of the way the database is designed. Its:

Year 2. Company 3. Model

venom  8y ago

it is easier to organize the special editions of the slr by using mclaren mercedes as a manufacturer but yes that is the proper name..

THIS WHOLE CAR IS CARBON FIBER! also when you make a car that can go 208 on an open road, make the sound of thunder, have all the mercedes luxuries, weigh almost 4000 lbs and still have more stopping power than most others along with tons of grip its gonna cost a lot! go find a giant chunk of carbon fiber that will go 170 mph with the roof down, be quiet enough to let you talk and cost half as much as a mclaren f1...

how does not being a sports car justify th so-called slower lap time??


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

This car looks 10times better in person and its awesome but i do not really consider it a sports car whatsoever w(hich justifies the slower nurburgring time(i guess)but why is this car so expensive?If it was carbon fibre that would give it more greater times and justify the cost, so why the high price?

Is the 7:40 by Autobild at Nordschleife correct? I found that link
http://www.autobild.de/artikel/porsche-carrera-gt-mercedes-slr-mclaren_45763.html
I don't speak german but I think it says about that 7:40. If it's right please someone delete the old laptime by Sportauto.

that topspeed claim is wrong the SLR was never reached 350km/h in a real topspeed test...
Auto motor sport real numbers
Nardo test 2004.. 0-100km/h 3.8s, 0-200km/h 10.7s, 400m 11.5s, 1km 20.5s, real reached topspeed 334km/h
Nardo test 2006 .. 0-100km/h 3.8s, 0-200km/h 11.2s, 0-300km/h 36.9s, topspeed 324km/h (high temperature ruined topspeed)
2007 test by Sportscars ..0-100km/h 3.9s, 0-200km/h 11.1s, 0-300km/h 36.3s, topspeed 334km/h

can any body verify if this is true or not i realllly need to know heres the link....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_SLR_McLaren.........it says....The German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, in 2004, tested the SLR at the Nardo test track in southern Italy. They reported that the SLR accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.5 seconds, and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 24.4 seconds. The car's 400-meter time and 1 km time were found to be 10.5 seconds at 228 km/h (142 mph), and 18.5 seconds at 310 km/h (193 mph), respectively. They also reached its claimed 360 km/h (224 mph) top speed.
