McLaren SLR Stirling Moss - Click above for high-res gallery

Introduced at the Detroit Auto Show this year, the Stirling Moss will be the very last iteration of the McLaren SLR line. Its striking lines seem to illicit a love-it-or-hate-it reaction, but no one can argue that Mercedes-Benz didn't come up with something unique as a send off to its flagship model. Not that you can buy one anyway – only 75 are planned for production and will only be offered to the most loyal of SLR customers. So what does 750,000 euros get you? In addition to the unique body and interior, each car comes with M-B's bread-and-butter supercharged V8 pumping out 650 horsepower plus the ability to go 200+ mph without so much as a windshield protecting you from bugs at triple digit speeds. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us. Still can't decide if the McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is your style? Mercedes-Benz just released 25 brand new photos, which have all been added to the high-res gallery below.

        • 6 Years Ago
        I would never, ever buy a car without a windshield.

        And this is not biased because I love my Mercedes Benz.

      I can't wait to see the SLS.

      Over the top, tasteless pimpmobile, and completely out of its time. The sketches looked good, but that didn't translate in a nice product.

        Hey it is a free country, you can criticize all you want we will take away stars from you all we want.

        I love the car, just not the looks. I'm not sure what happened because the original renders looked amazing . . but of course the shading was more intense. Something about that paint . . it's like the paint they spray on plastic toys--really disappoints. With more pronounced angles, a darker graphite finish (which would change the name to Platinum Moss) and making all the grills a lighter metallic shade and this thing would look a lot more sharp and professional. for now it looks plasticky

        Totally agree - it looks ridiculous.

        I like this car. But in all honesty, I would feel like such a dork if I drove it anywhere but the track. It definitely does not pass the Kristin Scott Thomas test and would wind up on the far left of the Cool Wall.

        Luckily, most of the people who will buy one are quirky 80 year old billionaires who wear funny hats. At least that is the only people I've seen driving SLR's here in Switzerland. I also imagine quite a few will get the gold plating treatment in Dubai.

        You guys see big numbers, a bunch of swoopy bits, and a six figure price and think its the bee's knees. Its just all so silly - the automotive equivalent of a Big Mac.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Wah! I criticized the silly looking supercar! Negative stars!

      it is awesome
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hideous.

      It looks like a kit car.

      Those taillights look like they found a stock of Hyundai Sonata lights cheap, and then shaped the rear end to accommodate them.

        I really loved it at first.....
        Then I got a little annoyed with the design.......

        Now I am somewhere in between.

        I think that in the long run It will be a classic design.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Probably not the best looking car (that belongs to Aston IMHO) ever to be made, but it is certainly insane in its concept and distinctive in exposing its passengers to the elements when too many cars cocoon people inside.

      I think it's awesome.

      Does Mercedes have Korean designers from Hyundai designing their cars these days? It sure looks like it according to these sketches. Too bad, because this was a lost chance to do a great supercar....but then again there might be a spot for this in the next Batman flic. I know the designers over at HotWheels are drooling already.

      What ever happened to good taste?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I get what people mean when they say it's really over the top, but doesn't quite work. And I think I know why. Two reason: First, the car needs to be LOW with bigger wheel arches and second it needs wheels which have a dramatic convex shape to them. Look at the sketches, then look at the car, and tell me those two differences aren't what kill it. For once I hope some sheik buys it, lowers it and put HUGE wheels on it, preferably shiny. Who knew I'd say that? But it's true because this is a grown man's hot wheels, and it needs spinny, shiny bits.
        • 6 Years Ago
        You're right about that, the car is ultra-organic, and the wheels are sharp/pointy.

        Total mismatch.

      Looks absolutely gorgeous in the metal! ;)
