The fruits of co-creation Mercedes-Benz and McLaren will leave a huge footprint of automotive history. Talking in the past tense, as in December this year will come last sports car, released jointly by these companies. And he, the latter will absorb all – the name of the two great brands, the memory of the victory in the Mille Miglia and the legendary grandfather Moss, owner of record time on this track.
In the middle of the last century Silver Arrows tore competitors and took prizes at various races. One of the most famous victories was the thousand-mile Mille Miglia 1955, when Stirling Moss set the course record at the legendary 300SLR. It was this victory and decided to use the car as a brand while creating a joint with McLaren supercar. But as soon as the interest in the car began to fall, saw the light of SLR 722 Edition. It was again an allusion to communicate with the crew start istoriey.Vremya Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson on 300SLR – 7:22.
The victory was the grand – with a margin of half an hour from finishing second of his team-mate Fangio. Many details, however, revealed in due course. For example, in 2006 in an interview Scotsman Moss said that a minute before the race Fangio gave him some pills for the maintenance of tone. Of course, while almost all the pilots drank some stimulants, and race have a race – and victory is a victory. But the time is coming and it’s time to even the new SLR remain only fleets collectors. In May rolled production roadster, and in June already begin production of a hero article, Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. Rumors about his appearance, as well as spy shots from Nurburgring, appeared on the Internet in the summer, and serial (if so in general we can say) version appeared only now, at the Detroit Motor Show.
Total release 75 copies – December conveyor must close. And sell them only to those who already have a “normal» SLR. Indeed, 750 thousand euros – insufficient criterion for extra screening buyers. We must pay tribute to the Mercedes – they do not hide the true purpose of the machine. This is not a sport in its purest form. The creators say that this car is “designed for people with exquisite special requests and dreams.” Really elegant and especially – the old-fashioned aerodynamic nodules behind the riders, acting as rollover protection, exhaust pipes that go directly from the front fenders, a huge diffuser …
In the trunk – two removable panels. You can cover only half the passenger side and ride one, enjoying the views of passers-by, but you can completely cover the interior – to store the machine or long term parking. With intensive slowing from a speed of over 120 km / h is automatically raised a small but effective wing that increases downforce and with it the stability of the machine. Moreover, it can be forced to raise on their own. If suddenly the owner will desire to break the record of Stirling. Or to put in place a couple of Italian “horses.”
After all, SLR, as he Stirling Moss, burst into the world where the Ferrari. Enchanting appearance, a short series of limited series – and a nice departure. Look at the history of post-war racing Mille Miglia – winning only Italian brands: Ferrari, Lancia and Alfa Romeo. And one 300SLR. One win, but remember it half a century later. Also, this “car for people with exquisite taste” will remain permanently in the memory of motorists.
