2010 Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss

2010 Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss

Intrigued by the Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss? You can't buy one unless you already own one of the other SLR models, even if you have a spare $1,000,000 burning a hole in your pocket.

The SLR Stirling Moss is the last in a line of big, mega-performance Mercedes SLR sports cars developed with the McLaren Formula One race team and first introduced in 2004. Exactly 75 copies of the SLR Stirling Moss will be built between June and December 2009, when all SLR production ceases.

This SLR is a tribute to renowned British race driver Stirling Moss, who famously won the 1955 Mille Miglia race in Italy in the original Mercedes 300 SLR, in what remains a record time. Yet the SLR Stirling Moss is as much a reward for loyal Mercedes customers. Only those who have purchased previous SLR models (for a minimum of $495,000) will be offered a chance to buy the new SLR Stirling Moss.
