The new 2008 Mercedes-Benz SLR McClaren Roadster is one for a driver who really wants to go somewhere fast. It utilizes Formula 1 motor racing credentials, and has a V8 engine producing 617-horse power, achieving a top speed of 206 mph.
This roadster has plenty to offer, including many standard safety features. There’s an integrated restraint system that has front airbags, a door-mounted side-impact head/thorax bag, knee bag and occupancy sensors that avoid unnecessary deployment by determining whether a passenger is present or not.
There’s also protection in the event of an accident with Automatic Collision Notification, which engages the Tele Aid SOS function if an airbag is deployed. Tele Aid provides 24-hour emergency aid.
This ‘08 Mercedes-Benz is definitely one that rides in style, and proving that fact are exterior features like Crystal metallic and pure paint finishes, side gills that give a sporty dynamic to vehicle design and an AMG sports exhaust system with two sidepipes. There’s also a semi-automatic fabric soft top, available in three two-tone diamond pattern color combinations.
Luxurious style is also found inside, with features like a choice of 14 upholsteries, including premium Silver Arrow leather, premium leather on dash, console, doors, armrests, and rear cabin panels and high-grade aluminum on the center console.
Also impressive inside is the audio programming, including an AM/FM radio with concealed cassette player and 6-disc CD changer, Bose Cabin Surround with seven speakers. Bluetooth capability also is available. Providing comfort inside is a dual-zone CFC-free automatic climate control with individual left and right controls for temperature and airflow direction, with dual automatic modes and power-adjustable body-contoured carbon fiber sport seats.
The 2008 SLR McClaren Roadster from Mercedes-Benz is a vehicle that combines luxury, safety and high performance, making it an asset for those who want to be noticed.
