Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

(from Mercedes-Benz Press The new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is an impressive to the competence and experience of Mercedes-Benz and our 1 partner McLaren in the development and of high-performance sports cars. The with its striking swing-wing and styling elements borrowed the Formula 1 Silver Arrows, on the legacy of the famous SLR race of the 1950s. Equipped with race car technology and ground-breaking new developments, designed to ensure a standard of safety and suitability for use, the new SLR creates a distinctive for itself as a 21st-century Gran – a thrilling synthesis of tradition and

The newly developed V8 supercharged delivers an output of 460 kW/626 hp and the sports car from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 The top speed is approximately 334 km/h. The of the new SLR, like those of the Formula 1 race cars, is from carbon fibre – lightweight materials which exemplary energy absorption, ensuring the highest standard of protection. The SLR is the world’s first car to have a front crash manufactured entirely from fibres. Adaptive airbags, developed kneebags and sidebags, tensioners, high-performance ceramic discs and an automatically adaptive in the boot lid round off the range of equipment on board the Mercedes-Benz SLR setting new standards in this class.

Technology way ahead of its time and an of power – these were the of the legendary SLR race cars in Fangio, Moss, Kling and Mercedes drivers achieved victories in all of the major road in 1955. The new SLR demonstrates the same its groundbreaking technical innovations it as the Mercedes-Benz among high-performance cars.

Two Longitudinal Members from Carbon Fibre

Absorb Energy in a Head-On

The 21st-century Gran Turismo is almost entirely from fibre composite. This yet extremely rigid material in the aeronautical and space industries and has proven its benefits in today’s 1 race cars. The weight of the high-tech material over is around 50 percent, and the carbon on impact, are characterised by four to times higher energy than steel or aluminium. exploits these qualities by two 620-millimetre longitudinal members from carbon fibre in the structure of the new SLR. These the entire energy of the crash in a head-on collision, leaving the cell largely undamaged. It is made entirely from fibre composite and therefore a very safe survival in side-on or rear-end collisions

Mercedes-Benz has introduced new material to the manufacture of the brake discs They are made from ceramic and are characterised by high and a very long life. In with the electrohydraulic braking Sensotronic Brake Control they allow outstanding figures too, impressively the motor racing heritage of the SLR McLaren.

460-kW/626-hp V8 powerplant Cutting-Edge Compressor Technology

In the of optimum dynamic handling and stability on braking, the new Mercedes-Benz SLR has a front mid-engined design. The V8 engine, mounted on a robust frame, is installed at a low level allows a low centre of gravity for handling.

With its 5.5-litre displacement, the engine develops a peak of 460 kW/626 hp and delivers its maximum of 780 Newtonmetres from 3250 rpm – a which remains constant a broad engine speed of up to 5000 rpm. This that the SLR 8-cylinder is among the powerful engines currently in a series-produced roadgoing sports This high-performance car takes 3.8 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 it passes the 200 km/h mark 10.6 seconds, and from a start it takes just seconds to reach 300 km/h. The top is 334 km/h.

Water-type charge-air dry sump lubrication and four catalytic converters are further features of this powerful – an engine which already stringent EU 4 exhaust gas regulations are not due to come into force 2005.

The 5-speed automatic fitted as standard, is also for high performance. It allows the to choose between three with different shift When Manual is selected, the gears can either be shifted buttons on the steering wheel or the selector lever’s Touchshift In this mode the driver can select between three stages – Sport, SuperSport and – significantly shortening the shift still further for an even drive.

Aerodynamic Concept uses from the World of Formula 1

The design of the Gran Turismo the Mercedes star takes styling elements from the SLR race cars of the 1950s and them masterfully with the avantgarde design language of the latest Mercedes passenger car and of the modern-day Silver Arrow cars which took the Mercedes team to Formula 1 Championship glory in 1998 and The design’s concept, in other thrillingly spans the divide past and present, whilst at the time showing the way forward for the car designs of tomorrow.

In order to the highest of standards in terms of at top speed, directional stability and the air requirements necessary for high-performance of this kind, Mercedes-Benz with McLaren on developing model’s superlative aerodynamics, exemplary roadholding plus the safety standards typical of Following extensive wind-tunnel the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was given a smooth underbody with a six-channel diffusor under the Both features are familiar principles from Formula 1. ensure that the airflow the vehicle is virtually unimpeded and negative lift, or downforce, is at higher speeds. The distinctive on each side of the vehicle are the result of this high-performance car’s aerodynamic underbody a conventional exhaust gas system have disrupted the smooth of the underbody.

At the rear of the SLR an adaptive spoiler additional downforce. From a of 95 km/h, it automatically adopts a position, increasing the contact at the rear axle. The spoiler doubles as an airbrake: when the brakes heavily, it rises to an of 65 degrees, not only ensuring aerodynamic drag but also the aerodynamic centre further the rear. This lends the SLR stability when braking high speeds.

Functionality and Luxury Stylishly

It is the very high levels of and luxury that truly the interior of the SLR stand out. padded carbon-frame seats, a steering wheel with buttons for manual gear clearly arranged chronometer-style and high-grade materials define the inside the high-performance sports

Alongside carbon and aluminium, the designers have used Arrow leather, specially for the SLR, which is available in the red of the legendary 1950s SLR race
