The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

is an Anglo-German hypercar jointly developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive,

built in Portsmouth and the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England.

Due to the presence of the automatic gear box, front mid-engined arrangement,

and its driving characteristics, some commentators classify

the SLR McLaren as a GT whose rivals would be vehicles like the Aston Martin DBS

V12 andFerrari 599 GTB Fiorano.

SLR stands for "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing).

The car's base price Was GB£295,337(approx.US$450,000 or €351,269 , c. 2009)

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was inspired by the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR of 1955,

based on the W196 F1 car, yet named after the road-going 300SL Gullwing.

Unlike most of its contemporaries,

its engine is front-mid mounted.

McLaren took the original concept car designed by Mercedes

and moved the engine 1 metre (39.4 in) behind the front bumper,

and around 50 centimetres (19.7 in) behind the front axle.

They also optimized the design of the center firewall.

On 4 April 2008, Mercedes announced they would cease production of the SLR.

The last of the coupes rolled off the production line at the end of 2007

and the roadster version was discontinued in early 2009.

The SLR sports a 232 kg (510 lb) hand-built 5,439 cc (5.439 L; 331.9 cu in),

supercharged, all-aluminium, SOHC V8 engine.

The cylinders are angled at 90 degrees with three valves per cylinder

and lubricated via a dry sump system.

The compression ratio is 8.8:1 and the bore

and stroke is 97 millimetre (3.82 in) and 92 millimeters (3.62 in),

The Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger rotates

at 23000 revolutions per minute and produces 0.9 bar (13 psi) of boost.

The compressed air is then cooled via two intercoolers.

The engine generates a maximum power of 626 PS (460 kW; 617 hp)@6500rpm

and maximum torque of 780 N·m (580 lb·ft)@3250-5000rpm

60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 3.5 seconds.

The 0 - 100 mph (160 km/h) sprint was achieved in 7.5 seconds

and a quarter mile run was completed in 11.5 seconds at 126 mph (203 km/h).
