There are six such supercars in total.

A rare Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren roadster in the McLaren Edition modification was put up for sale in the UK at Collecting Cars auction. The 2007 supercar with 2,730 kilometers is currently priced at £ 310,000.

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren rolled off the assembly line in 2007. Two years later, the supercar underwent its first modification in the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division. The original silver color of the car was repainted in white. In addition, the roadster was equipped with a sports aerodynamic body kit, new black rims, as well as reinforced suspension and side exhaust. The interior of the car has new seats and carbon trim.

A year later, MSO engineers added a carbon fiber steering wheel and carbon fiber side mirror housings to the roadster, as well as red sports seats. In addition, the brake calipers of the sports car were made scarlet. The last modification affected the car several years ago – the car body was repainted in dark gray metallic.

Under the hood of the SLR McLaren is a compressor V8 with a volume of 5.4 liters and a capacity of 625 horsepower (780 Nm). The maximum speed of the supercar is 332 kilometers per hour. According to the seller, thanks to regular maintenance and low mileage of only 2,730 kilometers, the car is in perfect condition.

The McLaren Edition is an exclusive program for supercar owners looking to personalize their vehicles. Throughout history, engineers have upgraded only 25 models, including only six roadsters. The copy offered for sale has the first serial number. One of six unique roadsters is currently available for £ 310,000

At the end of July, RM Sotheby’s put up for sale a rare 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss. A two-door speedster with a carbon body and a mileage of 8,500 kilometers can be purchased for 1.9-2.2 million euros.
