In Dubai, one of the 75 issued Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss copies appeared on sale. For a rare convertible they ask for $ 2.55 million

The car borrowed its own name from the great Sir Stirling Mos, whose victory in the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR in the endurance race “One Thousand Miles” is considered one of the greatest victories in the history of motor sports.

This particular Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss of the 2010 production year had only one owner, and its mileage is 315 miles (507 km). Most of the time the car was in Germany, and a couple of months after delivery it was used for the Hermes PaketShop commercial, which was filmed in Barcelona with 2-time F1 world champion Miki Hakkinen.

 Over the years, cars have been used in rare cases and very carefully, for this reason it is currently in almost new condition. Together with the convertible, the buyer will receive 2 covers, goggles and other factory accessories.

 Like many other SLR McLaren Stirling Moss samples around the world, this instance is painted in a silver shade, and the interior is trimmed with genuine red leather. The machine has a 5.5 liter V8 turbo engine with a capacity of 641 hp, which is paired with a rear-wheel drive system.

  The opportunity to buy a car like the SLR Stirling Moss is very rare. Most well-known collectors bought Stirling Moss samples, which indicates the special status of the model in automotive history.
