Click above for a high-res gallery of the McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

At an event ahead of tomorrow's Detroit Auto Show kick-off, Mercedes-Benz showed off the new Mclaren SLR Stirling Moss to a select group of journos. The company is only offering 75 roadsters to current SLR owners to close out the supercar's tenure, so when these windscreen-free, 650 hp monsters are gone, that's it for the SLR. It must be a rush exploring the SLR's supercharged 5.5-liter V8 and 217 mph top speed with your head out in the open. Goofy old man and silly aviator eye-protectors sold seperately.

      I bet Jay Leno is going to get this car.

      For me, this car is simply ugly.
      The regular SLR looks great. If you're gonna go retro, go all the way retro but this attempt to merge old/new doesn't look pretty to me.
      Great car I bet, but the aesthetics don't impress me.

      Freakin awesome.

      And I'd totally drive it with the leather cap and goggles.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Leather cap and goggles are the only way to drive this thing.

        Should be the only way to drive a Caterham, too, but then they added windscreens as an option. :P

      Now Ariel Atom and Lotus 2-Eleven drivers won't be the only ones with their epiglottises full of bees.

      "The company is only offering 75 roadsters to current SLR owners..."

      Probably the only people will want to buy this.

      I wonder how long until we get a post about one of these wrapped around a tree or pole due to a hooning night gone wrong in Dubai.

      Goofy Old man loves looking at the camera...

      Why Debut this car in the US... Considering they have already said this car will not be sold in the US...

      I don't care what people think, this SLR is hot.
      • 6 Years Ago
      When I look at this car, Speedracer comes to mind.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Almost wish that was the way the car always was. Sick!
