2009 Mercedes McLaren SLR Stirling Moss

M-B has no love for the USA. The 75 unit run of the Mercedes McLaren SLR Stirling Moss will all be sold only to Europe. Mercedes probably isn’t being mean, it just should have no trouble selling the handful of SLR Stirling Moss’ without having to leave the its home continent. Besides if someone in the rest of the world is wealthy enough to afford the $1.07 million price tag, he or she can probably figure out how to get it home.

The final version of the SLR comes with no roof, windshield or sideglass, but it does get the 650 hp 5.5-liter supercharged V8 from the 722 SLR. Without a windshield, this roadster can still hit a rip-your-face-off top speed of 217 mph. Production should begin in June, just in time for some blasting through the Alps.
