Mercedes-Benz SLR Roadster

Mercedes-Benz SLR Roadster

 

Like its closed relative the SLR Roadster is constructed almost entirely from carbonfibre. The semi-auto top needs manually unlocking from the windscreen. Mercedes claims conversations at speeds over 120mph are possible due to good aero-acoustics. The material for the SLR Roadster’s hood allows it to match the 206 mph top speed of the SLR Coupe. The supercharged V8 is identical to the engine in the SLR Coupe and produces 617 hp. AMG’s five-speed automatic transmission delivers the power to the wheels. A sprint to 62 mph takes 3.8 seconds just like in the coupe version.
