An SLR isn’t simply put together in a factory, it is manufactured precisely where the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 cars are built: at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England. Every SLR thus combines the best of two worlds: the legendary quality and experience of Mercedes-Benz and the Formula 1 know-how of McLaren.
For this reason, apart from state-of-the-art motorsport technology, motor racing materials are also used: carbon-fibre reinforced plastic, CFRP for short, has established itself in motorsport, as a material of the highest strength, rigidity and energy absorption with a very low specific weight. Reason enough to use CFRP as a material for a legend. For the SLR.
