In 2007 Mercedes-Benz with McLaren created the Mercedes-Benz-McLaren SLR Roadster.
The Roadster features a carbon fiber roof. In fact, every body panel, except for two, is made from the exotic material. The loads of carbon haven’t done much to lower the weight of the car – it’s still super heavy. The engine is the standard SLR’s 617 HP unit instead of the 722’s 650HP motor.
The Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster is the first convertible Mercedes in recent memory where the top is not fully automatic. The occupants will have to manually unlatch the roof, push upwards, and then let the motor take over. What’s up with that? The most expensive car in Mercedes’ lineup and I have to manually unlatch the roof? Forget it. There’s no way I’m paying £350,000 for that.
So let’s take a look at another photos of this beautiful Roadster:
