In total, 75 copies of the Mercedes SLR McLaren sports car performed by Stirling Moss were collected. A feature of these cars is the complete absence of a roof and a windshield, as well as a total weight reduced by 200 kg.

The Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss sports car is one of the rarest cars ever made by a German automaker. In total, 75 samples of the impressive open-top supercar with no windshield were collected. An exclusive version of the car was created as a tribute to the legendary British racer Sir Stirling Crawfourd Moss and his victories in the races of Mille Miglia and Targa Florio.

YouTube personality Supercar Blondie has been invited to Germany to see an impressive collection of the rarest Mercedes models. These guys have at their disposal not one, not two, but three copies of the Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss, and the rarest of them has a white body with carbon fiber elements – only two cars were built in this shade. They also have other rare cars, including the luxurious Maybach G650 Landaulet, the electric SLS and the unique Exelero concept that we wrote about earlier this month.

The Mercedes SLR McLaren supercar in the Stirling Moss version was also lighter, longer and wider than the standard model.

The machine weighed 1,551 kg, which is about 200 kg less, in addition, the exclusive novelty did not have a roof. Mercedes engineers also decided to get rid of the windshield and replace it with two tiny wind deflectors only two centimeters high. Behind the driver and front passenger are two “scoops” built into the body.

Despite the fact that such a version of the supercar was shown ten years ago, it is still one of the fastest Mercedes models, which accelerates to 100 km / h in less than three and a half seconds, and then reaches a top speed of 350 km / hours
