A super-rare Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss Edition is currently on sale for a super-high price. Only 75 such vehicles were built in 2009, as a tribute to one of Britain’s greatest racers, the man who took a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR sports-racing car to glory at the Mille Miglia legendary race in 1955.
Only two were made in white with black carbon fiber and Xenon lamps, which makes this automobile probably the rarest SLR Stirling Moss configuration. The two-seater features an interior in carbon fiber and red leather.

The car only weighs 1,551 kg, a lot of weight saving being achieved thanks to the lack of roof and windscreen.
Back then, the Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss Edition was sold for 666,000 pounds. Powered by a 5.5-liter supercharged V8, it runs from a standstill to 100 km/h (62mph) in 3.5 seconds and rushes all the way to a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
The SLR was delivered in the autumn of 2009 to a collector in Berlin, who hardly ever took it for a ride. He sold it in March 2015, when the odometer only showed 429 kilometers. Now the car is once again on the market, for a jaw-dropping price: 2,950,000 Euros (3,350,000 US dollars). Would you dare bargain for it?
