This is the pinnacle of the highly succesful SLR (Sport, Leicht, Rennsport or Sport, Light, Racing) and also a tribute to Sir Stirling Moss who drove legendary SLR race cars to victory in the 1950′s. Only 75 units were produced each costing well over $1,000,000.
Although not designed for the track, the car is able to generate even more downforce thanks to an enlarged rear diffuser. The car is 200 Kg lighter that the 722 Edition and able to achieve a higher speed of 217 mph.
Noticeable absent are a roof, windshield or side windows meaning anyone wanting to drive the car at speed should invest in a pair of goggles or helmet.
