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.
