technology way during his advance, and an abundance of power – these were the distinguishing marks of the legendary SLR racing sports cars in which Fangio, Moss, Kling and other Mercedes drivers spectacular victories achieved in all important road race in 1955.Der Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren shows the same characteristics, its groundbreaking technical innovations so as the Mercedes-Benz among high-performance sports car.

two side members made from carbon fiber composite material manufactured to absorb energy in a head-anKollision 

The 21thCentury Gran Turismo is created almost entirely from carbon fiber composite material gefertigt.Diese lightweight yet extremely rigid material in the air and space industry and also has its advantages in today’s Formula 1 race car to demonstrate gestellt.Der weight advantage of the high-techmaterial over steel is around 50 percent, and the carbon fibers upon impact by a four-to-use five times higher energy absorption than steel or aluminum besteht.Mercedes-Benz these properties through the installation of two 620-millimeter longitudinal members made from carbon fiber in the front structure of theMercedes-Benz SLR McLaren gemacht.Diese the total energy of the impact absorbing in a defined frontal collision so that the cabin is almost entirely made of carbon fiber also unbeschädigt.Es composite and therefore offers a very safe survival zone in side or rear impact.

Mercedes-Benz has introduced new material technology for the production of brake discs are made of fiber-reinforced ceramic zu.Sie and are characterized by high stability and long lifetime aus.In collaboration with the electrohydraulic braking system Sensotronic Brake Control (SMC™), the optimum delay values ​​and thus underlined the impressive racing heritage of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

460-kW/626-hpV8-Triebwerk with advanced compression technology

In the interests of optimum dynamic handling and high braking stability, the new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren a front-mid-engined high Design.DerV8 engine, mounted on a sturdy aluminum frame that is at a low level, which allows a low center of gravity for agile handling, it is installed.

With its 5.5-liter engine develops the turbocharged engine has a peak power output of 460 kW/626 hp and delivers its maximum torque of 780 Newton meters from 3250 rpm – a figure that remains constant over a wide speed range fromup to 5000 revolutions per minute bleibt.Dies means that the SLR 8-cylinder engines are currently the most powerful production sports car in a street car ist.Dieser high-performance car takes just 3.8 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100km / h, it passes the 200 km / h mark after 10.6 seconds, and from a standing start it takes only 28.8 seconds to 300 km / h top speed is 334 away.The km / h 

Water-type charge-air cooling, dry sump lubrication and four metal catalytic converters are further special features of this powerful engine -.An engine that is already the stringent EU 4 exhaust gas regulations that are not carried into effect until 2005.

The 5-speed automatic transmission is standard, for high power ausgelegt.Es allows the driver can choose between three programs with different characteristics Verschiebung.Wenn “manual” is selected, the five speed levelseither through buttons on the steering wheel or the selector lever’s touch shift function sein.In this mode, the driver can also select between three shift stages – “Sport”, “Super Sport” and “Race” -.A significant reduction in response times even further for an even sportier driving 

aerodynamic concept uses know-how from the world of Formula 1 

The body design of the Gran Turismo with the Mercedes star takes classical styling elementsthe legendary SLR racing cars from the 1950s and combines them skillfully with the sophisticated, avantgarde design language of both the latest Mercedes passenger car models and modern Silver Arrow racing cars, the McLaren Mercedes team to Formula 1 World Championship glory was in 1998 and1999.Das Design’s concept, in other words, exciting a bridge between past and present, at the same time the way forward for the sports car designs of tomorrow while.

meet standards to make the highest in terms of handling at high speed, directional stability and the cooling air requirements, who worked for high-performance cars of this kind, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren in the development of this model’s superlative aerodynamics, whichexemplary road holding, and was typically on the road safety standards for Mercedes.Nach extensive wind tunnel testing, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren a virtually smooth underbody with a special six-channel diffusor under the rear gegeben.Beide features make familiar design principles from Formula 1.Youthat the air flow is below the vehicle virtually unimpeded and that negative lift, drive, or are at higher speeds produziert.Die distinctive sidepipes on each side of the vehicle, the result of this high-performance sports car’s aerodynamic underbody concept.A conventional exhaust system would disturb the smooth line of the underbody have 

amHeck of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren a retractable spoiler sorgt.Ab additional downforce at speeds of 95 km / h, will automatically take a 10-degree position, increasing the contact pressure at the Hinterachse.Der spoiler also acts as an airbrake: when the driver brakes heavily, it rises to an angle of 65 degrees, not only ensuring increased aerodynamic drag but also shifting the aerodynamic center adds further to the hinten.DiesMercedes-Benz SLR McLaren excellent stability when braking from high speeds.

, functionality and luxury combined with stylish 

There is a very high level of functionality and luxury, is really the interior derMercedes-Benz SLR McLaren abheben.Individuell padded carbon-frame seats, a multifunction steering wheel with a racing cartype buttons for manual gear selection, clearly arranged chronometer-style instruments and high-quality materials define the atmosphere inside the high-performance sports car.

In addition to carbon and aluminum, the Mercedes designers have used “Silver Arrow” leather, specially for the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, which developed into the distinctive red of the legendary SLR racing car, 1950s.

Design: Spanning the gap between past, present and future 

legend and innovation – this is the order in which the body design of the new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, as itthe classical elements of style takes abdie legendary SLR racing cars of the 1950s and combines them skillfully with the sophisticated, avantgarde design language of both the latest Mercedes passenger car models and modern Silver Arrow racing car with which the McLaren-Mercedes team comes into Formula 1World Championship

The design’s concept therefore a bridge between past and present, and CRE-ates a car with a unique charisma – ..A Mercedes-synthesis of legend and innovation, which is impressive by any standard 

It is the front end, especially the singles from the new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren as a direct descendant of the race cars that were so successful in recentTime: The center is the distinguishing mark, arrow-shaped nose dominiertdes Formula 1 Silver Arrow, and includes the Mercedes star on the front, a distinctive hallmark of manufacturing origins, the tradition.

under the nose can be taken a further typical styling element from the Formula 1 race found to cars, the McLaren-Mercedes took the championship crown in 1998 and 1999: the twin-fin front spoiler with the distinctively curved struts.As for the Silver Arrows, the wing fins are more than just a stylish distinctive features, they are actually crucial to the car’s’s Aerodynamik.Die high contact pressure to produce on the front axle has a key role in the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren plays’sure-footed, race car-like roadholding.

The fin design than anticipated recurring feature of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren’s appearance, so the main Taining a high degree of design consistency: separate ribbed sections of the head lamps from the nose, are the basis forthe two mirrors and adorn the rear light Rauf each side of the car, where the indicators’LEDs are positioned in two cantilevered fins placed one above the other 

Mercedes-breed design.Four-eyed face shapes distinguishing 

For the generously dimensioned air intake for engine cooling, the broad, flat bonnet, the rear edge is below the starting point for the A-pillars and allowing the deep design of Frontscheibe.Dies isAnother typical element from the world of motor racing, the driver is good visibility for high-speed driving needs taken.

The headlamp assembly is a refreshingly new version of the well known and equally successful one-to-face, which was the calling card of the Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicles since 1995.In this SLR-style re-interpreted, if the allow beam and high beam are used together, they never Nevertheless, emphasized in its basic, distinctive oval shape successful tenants, the design team’s strong visual effect through the jacket powerful projection head lamps in housings, high-quality camera lenses, allhoused behind clear glass reinforced similar.

As with all current Mercedes passenger cars, the oval Liniendes one-to-face form the starting point for modeling the hood and the Flügel.Die rounded contours of the headlamps are becoming mighty dome-shaped curves that deliberately associationswith the human anatomy: the curves are again on the wing as the sinewy muscles of a well-trained athletes and leaves no doubt in everyone’s mind that this car bristles.with the pure power of a sports superstar 

The contours – soft yet full of vigor and dynamism – to produce with taut lines combine to create a stunning, sculpted exterior form, a clear expression of the uncompromising way in which thiscar’s high performance credentials were verfeinert.Die car can flex its muscles, but obviously without any hint of aggression, with every fiber of his lithe body trimmed and taut, ready to start forward at any time.

The convex curves derivative of the inner pair of headlights Sweepnahtlos all the way back to the A-pillars and forms a smooth optical connection between the front end and the Fahrgastraum.Als they start with the long bonnet,gently rounded dome back in tight, clean lines, in turn, the occurrence of mold the A-pillars and the side line.Turn This is also one of the elements on which the characteristic, strong doses of SLR silhouette: the long hood, tight waist, compact cabin and short rear to create a conscious connection between the river of the SLR’s lines and the styling elements derMercedes-sports cars from years gone by, and symbolize the feeling of rising to the front, that courses through the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

The high-performance sports car exudes the same powerful, yet harmonious impression when from behind gesehenAuch.Dies is up to the elegant way in which the flow lines of the passenger compartment in the lid of the trunk, therejuvenate lean on the pillars, roof downwards geholfen.Im contrast to the SLR Silver Arrows of the 1950s, bent its tail slightly down, the boot of the Mercedes-Benz SLR is McLaren at the same high level, with the aerodynamic qualities. improve

The large rear lights are einsofort into Auge.Das distinctive, triangular shape of the transparent lenses, a typical feature of the Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, has a wrap-around design that far into the side panels to the width of the bodystress extends.

Side gills and wide open doors 

It is especially the side profile of the high-performance sports car, which they as a car whose manufacturer has a long and illustrious motorsport tradition, with large,finned air openings breathing new life into the SLR Legende.Diese “gills” are far more than just a styling touch and then, and now serves as the designer of the ventilation of the Motorraums.Die Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren have, even more emphasis on this particularfunction conferred by increasing the surface of the plate toward the back of the gills, and by a clean cut line at the end of the fins, then on to the sweeping hintenum the styling add to the double doors.

If there is a special feature that the new Gran Turismo has adopted from the Uhlenhaut coupe, the coupe version of the legendary SLR racing car, designed in1955 by Mercedes’head of audit at this time, Uhlenhaut isit the doors.

In their modern interpretation, however, they attached to the front roof pillars rather than on the roof itself and swing to vornund up in a wide Winkel.Nicht less sensational than the gullwing doors design from the 1950s, this new conceptalso increases the input to the vehicle for easy entry and exit for the driver and front passenger.

functionality, and an inspiring view of defining the internal architecture 

The interior reflects every detail of the interior, the high-performance character of the Mercedes-Benz SLR you McLaren.Nehmen your seat on board, and you’ll feel the thrill of sitting in a purebred Sportwagen.Die on-board atmosphere is also a security and peace – core requirements focus, where, driving too fast
