Mercedes-Benz announced on 5-4-7 that it will offer the SLR McLaren super sports car in the form of a roadster. Powered by a supercharged (Kompressor) 5.5-liter, 617-hp AMG V8 engine, the SLR McLaren Roadster can achieve a top speed of 207 mph.
Coupled to an AMG Speedshift R five-speed automatic transmission, the engine delivers maximum torque of 575 pound-feet, and a zero to 62 mph time of 3.8 seconds.
Apart from two aluminium engine frames, its body is made entirely of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) materials. Its newly developed roof material, which is available in three different colors, offers desirable aerodynamics while up. Favorable aeroacoustics with the top down mean conversation is still possible at well over 120 mph.
