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.
Uhh, yeah it doesm tell me, has any car under 165mph gotten a slow lap time? anyhoo,I couldnt care less about lap times, they do not matter to me at all, i just want too know the speeds they have reached on the main straight.
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...
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?
