Here we have one of our best spots, a McLaren Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss, seen here driving on the road, revving and being loaded into a truck. The car cost £660,000 new and is powered by a 641 bhp supercharged V8 engine- resulting in a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph. This is one of 75 cars ever built.
Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss Start Up and Driving in Monaco
This is the epic, extremely rare (75 in the World) and stupidly expensive McLaren Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss. It's a special model based on the SLR. There's no roof so you'll only drive this million dollar car... On nice days ! The engine is a 5.5 liter supercharged V8, with serious performances and top speed. Enjoy!
Sir Stirling Moss and this Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Remain Unbeaten
Few triumphs have inspired drivers like Sir Stirling Moss’ victory at the 1955 Mille Miglia. Then just 25 years old, driver Moss and co-driver Denis Jenkinson roared through 992 miles of Italian countryside in just 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds. Average speed? 98.53 miles per hour. Here, Moss tells the story of his victory in his own words. “Once the flag fell, I went flat out,” said Moss. “Obviously, when I’d see a car I caught up with, I really felt great about it, but I had no idea of the enormity of what it meant to myself because it’s really—it’s quite the thing to have on your CV.” Finishing ahead of the then-two times Grand Prix World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio, Moss’ achievement has long since been labeled “The greatest race”—a title that probably won’t be applied to any other motorsport event ever again. The 1955 Mille Miglia had it all: incredible drivers, now-iconic machines like the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR #722, and a harrowing course that was dangerous beyond belief. How dangerous? Moss said he had to wiggle the car from left to right on the road so that spectators would take a few steps back as he flew through the often small Italian towns along the route. “Oh, I’m certain it’s my greatest win,” said Moss. “I can’t think of any other car in the world that would have given me the opportunity to achieve the speeds we did.” Called SLR for Sport Leicht-Rennen (“Sport Light-Racing” in English) the 300 SLR was the world’s most advanced race car of its time: direct fuel-injected straight-8 engine, roughly 310 horsepower, and a top speed of around 180 mph (290 km/h). “The 722 is a really strong car…” said Moss. “The fact the car’s really old doesn’t matter—that car, the way it is now, I reckon we’d beat any other cars, anyway!” Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com http://facebook.com/Petrolicious
