Performance Edit

Mercedes-Benz claims that the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds at 98 °F), 0-200 km/h in 10.6 seconds, and 300 km/h in 28.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 334 km/h (207 mph) which makes it the fastest automatic, (although some consider the Bugatti Veyron to be the worlds fastest automatic car, it utilizes a dual clutch sequential manual transmission and not a true automatic). The car uses carbon fibre for its body construction which makes it lighter. The car is, however still quite heavy at 1768 kg due to the numerous luxury items included in it. Though it is claimed to have a top speed of 207 mph it has reached a higher speed of 211 mph.

Car and Driver got a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds, and a quarter-mile time of 11.2 seconds at 130 mph. These are during a test session that took place in the late afternoon, when October temperatures were on the decline. C&D suggests the times may be even lower if temperatures were lower. Car and Driver got top gear acceleration 30-50 mph and 50-70 mph times of 1.7 and 2.4 seconds, which are the fastest ever recorded by the magazine in a production car. The SLR also pulled 1.13 g on the skidpad.

The German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, in 2004, tested the SLR at the Nardo test track in southern Italy. They reported that the SLR accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.6 seconds, and 300 km in 24.8 seconds. The car’s 400-meter time and 1 km time were found to be 11.5 seconds at 207 km/h, and 20.5 seconds at 269 km/h, respectively. They reached a top speed of 339 km/h breaking the claimed top speed of 334 km/h.

Comparison With Other Supercars Edit

Not many cars are in the same league with the SLR. It’s cheaper than an Enzo Ferrari by about $200,000, but costs about $10K more than a Porsche Carerra GT. It only costs half as much as a McLaren F1 did in 1997. The SLR can’t touch the top speeds of the Enzo or the McLaren F1 (217 and 240 mph, respectively), but it beats the Carerra GT by two mph.
The Enzo and F1 also dwarf the SLR’s horsepower, but the Carerra GT is more comparable, with only 604 hp to the SLR’s 626. Perhaps the most telling difference is weight. The McLaren F1 is a slender 2,513 lbs., the Enzo weighs 3,020 lbs., and the Carerra GT weighs in at 3,043 lbs. The SLR, with its luxury interior, is a scale-busting 3,858 lbs.

Transmission Edit

The SLR comes with a five speed automatic transmission with three separate modes: Sport, Comfort and Manual. Sport used for everyday use, Comfort starts in second gear for bumpy or slippery roads. Manual allows the driver to shift gears with the touchpad or the simple levers on the steering wheel. When in Manual, three additional modes (Sport, Supersport, Race) on the second dial can be used, each significantly making quicker shift times. This is the same transmission as used in other performance models such as the SL65 AMG. The Mercedes-Benz seven speed automatic transmission as used on the SLK 55 AMG cannot handle power and torque output of the SLR; hence it is fitted with only a five speed transmission.

The gear ratios are as follows: 3.56:1, 2.19:1, 1.41:1, 1.00:1, 0.831:1.

Brakes Edit

The brake discs are carbon-ceramic which provide better stopping power and fade resistance than steel discs. Mercedes-Benz claim these discs are fade resistant to 1000 °C. The front discs are internally vented and 370 mm in diameter. 8 piston are used. Rear discs are 360 mm in diameter with 4 piston calipers. The result of these massive rotors is a maximum braking power of 1500 kW. When it is wet the calipers automatically skim the surface of the disks to keep them dry.

The SLR has been criticised for its braking performance. While all agree that the brakes are extremely powerful, some critics argue they are either «on or off». Such critics include Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond. In addition to this when the SLR is under braking extra fuel is pumped in to cool the engine. Since the exhausts are mounted in front of the driver’s position the smell of unburnt fuel is noticed in the cabin.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

На Североамериканском международном автосалоне в январе 1999 года компания Mercedes-Benz представила концепт-кар Vision SLR, вдохновленный автомобилем Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR 1955, который основывался на модели W196 F1 (для которой позднее была создана дорожная версия 300SL Gullwing). Автомобиль был представлен как «Серебряная стрела завтрашнего дня» с чёткой отсылкой на серию гоночных автомобилей под названием «Серебряные стрелы» из золотого века марки Mercedes-Benz в соревнованиях 1950-х годов. В том же году во Франкфурте была представлена версия в кузове родстер. Концепт-кар оснастили 5,5-литровым двигателем V8 AMG с наддувом (механическим компрессором), развивающим максимальную мощность в 557 л. с. и 720 Н·м при 4000 об/мин, работающим в паре с 5-ступенчатой автоматической коробкой передач с тремя режимами работы и функцией Touchshift.

Желая довести концепт до производства, компания Mercedes-Benz присоединилась к своему партнеру по Формуле-1, McLaren, создав таким образом Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Окончательная серийная модель была представлена 17 ноября 2003 года с некоторыми незначительными конструктивными изменениями в отношении первоначального дизайна, такими как более сложные вентиляционные отверстия с обеих сторон, редизайн передней части, красные тонированные задние фонари и другие модификации.

Хотя этот автомобиль часто классифицируется как суперкар, по сравнению с такими признанными представителями класса, как Porsche Carrera GT, Lamborghini Murciélago и Ferrari Enzo присутствие автоматической коробки передач и некоторые особенности модели делают его скорее представителем класса супер-GT, более близкие конкуренты которого — Aston Martin Vanquish и Ferrari 599 GTB. Одной из целей разработчиков являлось соединить в SLR суперкар и класс GT.

В начале 2007 года была показана ещё более скоростная модификация SLR McLaren 722 Edition с 650-сильным мотором. Летом появился ещё один SLR McLaren Roadster с открытым кузовом и складным мягким верхом, оснащённый 626-сильным мотором.

4 апреля 2008 года компания Mercedes-Benz объявила о прекращении выпуска SLR. В конце 2008 года состоялся аукцион по продаже последнего родстера и в начале 2009 года конвейер был остановлен. Выпуск родстеров завершился в начале 2010 года. В качестве замены был представлен новый суперкар SLS разработанный дочерней тюнинговой фирмой Mercedes-Benz — AMG. Заменой у компании McLaren стал McLaren MP4-12C.


The SLR has been praised for many of its features. It is extremely fast, yet is comfortable enough that the car has been categorized as more of a «grand touring» car than a «supercar» (e.g. Porsche Carrera GT, Ferrari Enzo). Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear has noted that it’s very easy to drive, with «cruise control, electric seats, air conditioner, CD auto changer, and it goes 210 miles an hour». Clarkson also said that it was built so

«You can cruise to the Nürburgring listening to Terry Wogan, do a mindblowing lap, and cruise back listening to Ken Bruce.»

Despite rumours, the Mercedes McLaren SLR is not diesel-powered, unlike certain versions of the Mercedes-Benz C111 supercar of the 1960s and 1970s.
