Mercedes Benz Unveil SLR McLaren and Its Advanced Materials
Mercedes Benz have unveiled their all new Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren supercar at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The car was a joint project between Mercedes Benz and their Formula 1 partner McLaren, which has no doubt resulted in the adaptation of several racing technologies into the high performance road going sports car.
Further evidence of McLaren’s involvement can be seen in the styling of the SLR front end which features cues taken from the nose cone of Formula 1 Silver Arrow race car. Aesthetics have not neglected the SLR’s heritage, also having been influenced by the SLR race cars of the 1950’s, with the SLR featuring swing wing doors and 2-seater configuration.
