2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster

[ translate ]

Chassis No. WDDAK76F79M001872
In 2003, Mercedes-Benz and its Formula One partner McLaren, teamed up to create the SLR, joining a new super sports car category along with the Ferrari Enzo and Porsche Carrera GT. The Roadster's SLR name drew inspiration from the iconic 300 Sport Leicht Rennsport Mercedes that took the racing world by storm 1955. The new SLR's unique styling and innovative technology were influenced by those very racecars and the two vehicles share many similarities in their silhouettes, side air intakes, and side exit exhaust. Additionally, the SLR McLaren's design features elements from the contemporary “Silver Arrow" race cars, such as its F1-inspired nose and double front spoiler. The car was available as a closed coupe with winged doors or an open roadster, a point of differentiation between its competitors from Porsche and Ferrari, while simultaneously honoring the legacy of the original 300 SLR.
The new SLR boasted advanced construction techniques that utilized carbon fiber chassis with aluminum components, which reduced its weight by 40 percent compared to traditional construction methods. Engineers placed the hand-built, 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine in a front mid-engine configuration. The Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger generated up to 0.9 bar of boost at 7,000 rpm, through two intercoolers the engine produce over 600 horsepower. The car's six-channel rear diffuser and six-position deployable air brake rear spoiler aided in its low drag coefficient, improved directional stability, and road adhesion. The car also featured eight-piston brake calipers at the front and four-piston calipers at the rear to bring its 200 mile per hour top speed to a rapid stop.
This remarkable SLR Roadster finished its largely hand-built production at the McLaren Technology Center of Surrey, England, in late summer of 2008 in dramatic Crystal Cassiterite Black contrasted by the optional Black and Red 300 SL Silver Arrow leather with matching leather finishing the dashboard, steering wheel, center console, and door panels. With a range of seat sizes for both the driver and passenger seats, this car was optioned with the largest at 'XXL' and 'XL,' respectively, increasing passenger comfort due to their increased size. Other amenities of this SLR include dual-zone climate control, Bi-Xenon headlights, and an instrument cluster with blue-faced gauges, and a prominent McLaren logos. According to the accompanying CARFAX, the car was cleared by US Customs in Savannah, Georgia, on 29 September 2008, and then transported to Mercedes-Benz of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Combining the use of innovative, cutting-edge technology with an avantgarde, motorsports-inspired design, the SLR Roadster provides an extraordinary driving experience utilizing the finest characteristics of Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. This SLR Roadster was recently serviced by Mercedes-Benz of West Covina, California, which included replacing the driver's door and hood struts, a major engine service including an engine oil and filer change as well as new spark plugs, fuel filters, coolant, and drive belts totaling in excess of $14,000 in November 2021 at 6,057 miles. The SLR, particularly the Roadster, has become exceptionally desirable since its debut, with this particular example featuring the highly desirable combination of low mileage, an outstanding color combination, recent service and is ready to be thoroughly enjoyed.
