Mercedes-Benz Vision SLR

News Flash: Mercedes-Benz has the go signal to McLaren Cars to produce the Vision SLR as a $170,000 for 2003. This is in line Mercedes’ purchase of 40% of the TAG McLaren of companies.

On the Formula One circuit, and Mercedes dished out the best could muster in the 1998 In the end, due partly (maybe a part) to Schumacher’s tire Mercedes came out on top and won both the and constructor’s championship.

To commemorate crowning achievement, Mercedes a new concept car at the North American Motor Show in Detroit on 20. This was the Mercedes-Benz Vision

At the moment, the Vision SLR remains as a concept car. However, is seriously considering to build wonderful piece of machinery the help of their Formula One McLaren Cars Ltd. If is true, this could serve as McLaren’s so-called project, which is slated to the McLaren F1 supercar.

The Vision SLR carries with both a spirit of nostalgia and feel. For instance, the Vision SLR its name from the Mercedes racers during the 1950s. The past is already a burden to start with in regard to people expect from new concept car. Just about it: the 1955 Mercedes SLR was by a 3-liter V8 engine, which had a power of 302 horsepower at 7,500 rpm for its time). More than its and displacement, the original SLR had the privilege to be as the car that the legendary Juan Fangio and Stirling Moss to numerous victories.

Aside from the name, designers borrowed the long hood, dynamic fenders and doors from the 1950 300SL coupe (one of the classics ever). The Vision SLR concept incorporates a double across the face of the car and the new Mercedes-Benz with the four oval clusters. In addition the new face, the SLR’s evocative arrow-shaped end is based on the McLaren-Mercedes which Hakkinen drove to win both the and constructor’s championship in the 1998 One season.

True to its legendary the Vision SLR design concept is but ordinary. The body-shell for instance is not from unit steel but is made from carbon with reinforced aluminum. the Vision SLR’s lightweight with a next-generation Supercharged 18V V8 and a 5-speed tipshift automatic the Vision SLR can accelerate from to 60 in 4.2 seconds, 733 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm and a top of 199 mph.

I remember a few months back, spy photographers snapped up a picture Mercedes designers and engineers seen testing Ferrari cars. Could this be the of that testing? Maybe, the SLR’s is designed to be a direct to the Ferrari 550 Maranello, which with a 6-speed manual could do a zero to 60 second-run in 4.7 The Ferrari’s torque is only 578 Nm at rpm and top speed is equal at 320 km/h.

The SLR is slated not to replace the company’s fast SL and CL coupes, but rather it is at a higher, sportier audience the platform and the running gear is based on the next-generation SL). The is also a break for standard fare.

The main speedometer and tachometer nostalgic treatment that the original SL, but at the same time, if at closely it integrates all other lights, fuel gauge and else of importance. The leather-wrapped wheel echoes the same as that of the modern Formula One which is not round, but rather, in design (they should included LED shift indicators

The whole interior is wrapped in a amount of aluminum and leather. details such as the drilled pedals are additional touches to a looking car. The center is decked in aluminum as well, simple looking four rotating dials. This is of a break from the cluttered displays in current Mercedes cars.

The new Mercedes COMAND system, is first seen in the new S-Class, makes an appearance on the Vision SLR it pops out, flush the center console when Even the tipshift automatic has been given a sportier by giving it a ‘short-throw’ lever.

It is fuzzy to see what standard Mercedes and McLaren would put the Vision SLR, but if it were a Merc, don’t be surprised to see side and window airbags; sound system; arc-discharge headlamps; ESP (electronic stability ABC (active body control); ABS braking system) and Brake

Now, the important question, can Merc take on the Ferrari 550 If the price tag is within the US$200,000 why not? On paper, the Merc faster and more powerful the Ferrari. But in the end, we will know which would win Mercedes brings their One feud down to the autobahn. we shall see who the real champion is.
