Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class Owner's Manuals
Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class cannot be confused with anything. However, details such as the side gills serving as air outlets, the long hood and doors are reminiscent of the 300 SL swing-up doors that shone in the 50s.
It is the delightful combination of classic elements with cutting-edge technology that makes the Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class so unique. Its elongated arrow-shaped “nose” is equipped with a whole system of air intake holes. The shape of the rear-facing gills is also inspired by the iconic 300 SL’s swing-up doors and very accurately captures the hot temper of the Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class. At the same time, its athletic rear end, compared to the 300 SL, is noticeably stretched upwards. An almost vertical tailgate spoiler lip with integrated AIRBRAKE and a 6-channel diffuser on the underbody increase downforce, effectively increasing vehicle stability and dynamics.
This combination of classic and cutting-edge ideas has made the Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class one of the most compelling examples of automotive design that remains true to the Mercedes-Benz tradition.
Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class combines the advantages of a supercar and the comfort of a touring car. High-quality leather trim is not only pleasing to the eye, but also delightful to the touch. Sports bucket seats made of carbon, following the contours of the human body with their proportions, are optimal from an ergonomic point of view.
The Mercedes-Benz SLR-Class demonstrates its outstanding qualities not only on the race track, but also in normal road conditions. Getting behind the wheel of an SLR and hitting the road is a real experience. Sporty carbon bucket seats, racing-car-like manual gearshifts and highly legible round instruments, like those found in a Formula 1 car but adapted to normal road conditions, welcome the driver and passenger of the SLR Coupé.
In a nutshell, this car is an exquisite combination of huge power, excellent maneuverability and supreme comfort. No wonder the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren coupe is called the “Silver Arrow of the 21st century.”
