The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren roadster is a grand tourer jointly developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive, built in Portsmouth and the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey, England and was sold from 2003 to 2010.

When it was developed, German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz owned 40 percent of the McLaren Group. SLR stands for “Sport Leicht Rennsport” (Sport Light Racing), and serves as an homage to the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR which was the McLaren’s inspiration.

The SLR features Sensotronic Brake Control, a brake-by-wire system. The brake discs are carbon-ceramic and provide better stopping power and fade resistance than steel discs when operating under ideal working temperature. Mercedes-Benz claims the discs are fade resistant to 1,200 °C (2,200 °F). The front discs are internally vented and 370 mm diameter eight-piston calipers are used. Rear discs are 360 mm in diameter with four-piston calipers. During wet conditions the calipers automatically skim the surface of the discs to dry them.

The SLR sports a 232-kg hand-built 5,439 cc), supercharged, all-aluminium, SOHC, V8 engine. The cylinders are angled at 90 degrees with 3 valves per cylinder and lubricated via a dry sump system. The compression ratio is 8.8:1 and the bore and stroke is 97 mm × 92 mm The Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger rotates at 23,000 rpm and produces 0.9 bar of boost. The compressed air is then cooled via two intercoolers. The engine generates a maximum power of 617 hp at 6,500 rpm and maximum torque of 780 Nm/580 lb·ft, at 3,250 to 5,000 rpm. The SLR uses AMG Speedshift R five-speed automatic transmission with three manual modes. The roadster version of the SLR went on sale in September 2007. It used the same supercharged V8 AMG engine as its coupé siblings, which propels it to a top speed of 208 mph) and a 0 to 62 mph acceleration time of 3.1 seconds.
