How many cars just like yours are out there? Gazillions, right? But how about owning one of the 75 ever made? A 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss is now on sale and it is three times more expensive than it was 6 years ago.
Back then, you had to already own a “standard” SLR to get a “Stirling Moss” edition. So here is your chance to join the exclusive elite club. What is the price of the entrance ticket? It is $2.9 million (2.6 million euros), three times more expensive than 6 years ago, when the car saw the light of day, out on sale for approximately $1,000,000.
For almost $3 million dollars, you get a fabulous car that has no roof and no windscreen. You get instead a 5.5-liter V8 engine, good for 650 horsepower and a top speed of 217 mph. The “standard” SLR “only” hit 617 horsepower.
The car has been stored in a garage, apparently most of its life, as it only travelled 3000 miles (4800 kilometers).
The Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss was the company’s way of commemorating Sir Stirling’s legendary 1955 win at Mille Miglia.
If you decide to buy that car, be careful to ask for change for your $3,000,000. And for the change, get a cap and a scarf. You are so going to need them when you hit the road in your new topless, windscreenless new fireball.
