Product Overview

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren C199 is a flagship high-performance supercar in production from 2003 to 2010. It was powered by several tunes of an M155 supercharged V8 engine that is roughly based on the M113K found in 55 AMG models. A 5G-Tronic 5-speed automatic transmission is used.
The most expensive Mercedes vehicle on the market during its production run, the SLR McLaren enjoyed a range of exclusive features. It was front-mid-engined with dry sump lubrication. Curiously, Mercedes opted to give the car side exhausts.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (C199) Coupe comes with double-wishbone suspensions at all four corners. This provides the good cornering performance and durability,.
