Car magazine reveals what might account as the most expensive Mercedes road trip ever. A multi-million-pound convoy made up by three of the rarest ‘Silver Arrows’ ever, the Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss.
Considering their original list prices, this super-Mercedes trio’s estimated cost should top £2.35 million. That without taking into consideration the fact that they were joined by an almost as rare Mercedes McLaren Roadster 722 S.
Launched back in 2009, the Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss was an hommage paid to the 1955 Mille Miglia winner 300 SLR racer, driven by no-less legendary Sir Stirling Moss. He won the thousand-mile race between Brescia and Rome at an average speed of nearly 100mph.
Styling-wise, the Mercedes SLR McLaren Stirling Moss is an enchanting mix of retro and modern. Chrome side pipes, flying buttresses and a small windscreen are among the subtle nods given to the original 300 SLR. Power output was rated at 641bhp, all developed by a glorious 5.5-litre supercharged V8. Top speed was 220mph, while the 62mph mark was reached in 3.5 seconds.
Mercedes has only built 75 of these dream machines. Their price is on the rise thanks to the exotic car market accelerated growth. Way up from the original £660,000. Head over to Car magazine to see the full photo gallery.
