    Default Mercedes SLR

    Its either coming out in mid 2003 to early 2004. Early predictions say it will have a 5.5 litre Supercharged V-8 delivering about 550 horsepower and 516lbs ft. of torque. About 50 will be made every year over an undisclosed amount of time. Deposits of 25000 pounds have already been taken, and the price of the car will be around 250000 pounds.

    The paint/stickers on the body messed up the car. It's so ugly. Do you have any pictures of the SLR without it?

    This was the original version that appeared in 1999, the one that will be coming out soon will be slightly different.

    That looks sweet, except the taillights, from what I can see. Like the sl 500's, but way to big

    The original version that appeared in 1999 looks awesome. Much better than the one with the stickers.

    That would be called a turbofan.


    Anyway, I think the car is hideous. Looks like something hyundai would build to rip off styling from MB

    Do not worry my friend, the lights will not look anything like that. The lights are simply covered up and masked as much as possible in order to make it more difficult to distinguish the car.
