Mercedes Benz originally showed off the Vision SLR coupe at the 1999 Detroit Auto Show, followed by the roadster version of the same car in September of that year in Frankfurt. In 2004 a production version of the SLR coupe finally arrived courtesy of Mercedes' F1 partner, McLaren. Yesterday, The Car Connection reported that Mercedes has now confirmed that they will finally introduce a open-top version of the SLR beginning this summer. No further details are available yet, although something might be announced at the Geneva Auto Show next month.
