Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 2008 Overview

The SLR McLaren is an impressive celebration of Mercedes-Benz and its Formula 1 partner McLaren in the development and production of high-performance sports cars. The two-seater, with its striking swing-wing doors and styling elements borrowed from the Formula 1 Silver Arrows, builds on the legacy of the famous SLR racecars of the 1950s. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, it is designed to ensure a high standard of safety, comfort and class-leading speed. The specially-developed supercharged 5.4-litre V8 engine, with an automatic, delivers an impressive output rivaling traditional super cars, powering up to as much as 334 kph. The body of the new SLR, like F1 racecars, is made from lightweight carbon-fibre composites. However, the body itself is hardly the most attractive of supercars, with an overlong snout and a short rear. Many might confuse it for a 'bargain' SL or SLK, though it should still attract a lot of attention. The SLR has a spoiler mounted on the rear which pops up when braking from high speeds. A special lighter 722 edition has black alloy rims and more power. A convertible Roadster joined the range for 2008.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 2008 Reliability & Resale Value

Resale Value
Known Problems In pre-2007 models, high underhood temperatures during hard driving could damage the alternator and cause a fire, so American dealers recalled the car, though it is unknown if local dealers did the same. Few other known problems, since most are low-mileage cars.
