The SLR brakes were always on fire, but why ??

I do not know, but someone tells me bad design ? bad engineering ? bad weather ?

I am picking one up next week, wish me all good luck.

It's Black / Black with 37,000 miles on the clock.

Honestly, I don't care if this car is considered "slow" nowadays, it's without a doubt the most beautiful modern Mercedes. And that S/C V8 sound... a symphony.

This car is called the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. NOT the McLaren Mercedes SLR, like the Brits like to call it.


User avatar

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


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

...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.

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.


User avatar

Georg  13y ago

high topspeed on the long stright does not mean fast laptimes..

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

Wads  13y ago

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

User avatar

venom  13y 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  14y 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.
