Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss: First Photos of Limited Production Supercar

The first official photos of the limited production Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Strirling Moss that will make its world premiere at the 2009 North American Internation Auto Show in Detroit this January have been leaked into the internet. The oddly styled (and that's an understatement) two-seater roadster which blends visual elements from the firm's racing past with Merc's current portfolio will be the last vehicle to be built under the partnership with McLaren as the two firms will each go their way in 2009.

The roofless and windowless sportscar is said to be equipped with the SLR McLaren's 650HP supercharged 5.5-liter V8 engine that's matted to a five-speed automatic transmission. All in all, Mercedes will produce a total of just 75 examples of the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss each priced at €750,000 which is approximately $1,070,000. We'll have more details on Merc's latest supercar car when the German firm officially presents the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss. Until then skip the jump to enjoy the photo gallery.
