    Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster "Well on its way to production"

    Big Mac prepares to blow its top!
    McLaren's Mercedes SLR convertible is well on its way to production
    Source: www.autoexpress.co.uk



    Fancy feeling the wind in your hair... at 207mph? That's the incredible prospect awaiting potential owners of the McLaren Mercedes SLR convertible - a car that has remained top secret until now.

    Auto Express has learned a drop-top version of the car built in Woking, Surrey, is well on its way to production, and will be officially unveiled within six months.

    It follows in the wheeltracks of the Vision SLR concept car, and will use the same 626bhp V8 as the standard model. With McLaren's composite body, the SLR convertible will be as strong as the fixed-roof version, and its performance just as explosive. Prices start at a hair-raising £350,000.

    I have to say, this car (strangely) looks more proportional in 'Vert from. It's a tad more boring, but much better looking.

    Don't mention it mate.

    But the first to receive this piece of news, were the folks from Auto Express in UK.

    I am just wondering why they're using the prototype SLR for the convertible photos when they could have used the current SLR for that, which looks much better than the prototype SLR IMHO.
