2007 Mercedes SLR (new and improved)

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

I thought the Mercedes Mclaren SLR
was already fast enough, but apparently not. The new 2007 Mercedes Mclaren SLR will be new and improved. The SLR will produce about 25 more horsepower and be even lighter than its predecessor. Below are some pictures of a prototype Mercedes McLaren SLR spotted on a mountain road in Spain. The spy photos show the new SLR undergoing testing on public roads prior to its planned unveiling at the Paris motor show in September.

The updates to the new Mercedes SLR are said to include a power increase for its supercharged V8 from 626 to 650 hp, an updated interior, 19-inch wheels, a firmer suspension, a new and improved braking system (hard to believe) and increased weight savings. A New blue exterior may also be available with tan interior.

It also appears that the new Mercedes SLR will have some reworked body features that will distinguish it from the existing model. As you can see in the pictures below the 2007 SLR’s subtle styling changes are noticeable around the front and rear ends. All changes are aimed at improving high-speed stability and creating more efficient underbody airflow.

The 2007 Mercedes SLR will be faster than the already ridiculous previous year SLR (that does a 3.8 second 0-60 and hits speeds of over 200 MPH..) According to Germany?s “Auto Motor und Sport” it is reported that the new 2007 Mercedes SLR will hit 62mph in just 3.6 seconds!!!!

Mclaren will only be building 150 SLR coupes per year until the end of 2007. At that point, the number of coupes will be lowered due to the introduction of the roadster.

    [...] The Brabus tweaked Mercedes McClaren SLR lets owners of the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz models further individualize their vehicles. I recently did a post about the 2007 Mercedes SLR but and I can’t even imagine how fast the 2007 SLR will be after getting a few Brabus upgrades. BRABUS equips the SLR with a special self-locking differential. Its 40 percent locking rate further optimizes the super sports car’s traction and thus further improves acceleration. [...]

    Well we have the answer to that now. 0-100 in 3.6 seconds.
