Like in the race track

With no doubt, to talk about Mercedes-Benz is to talk about technology and design, about research and innovation, about legend and sophistication. For more than a century, the Stuttgart based car factory in Germany has been a leader in many ways such as luxury, comfort, power and most of all, design. The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is a proof of this.

With its joint venture with the squireship Formula 1 McLaren, Mercedes-Benz managed to bring two - until recently - once distant worlds together: sport motoring and the comfort and pleasure to drive in the city or the highway. They reflect the technological innovation but at the same time have a nostalgic look, inspired in the SLR´s designed during the 1950´s, besides de racing track character with respect to the McLaren´s «Silver Arrow» conception.
