Review of the 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

  • Is it a highly capable grand touring car or a super-luxurious sports car? Once you pass 200 mph, it doesn't really matter, does it?

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Advanced design and construction, unprecedented level of occupant protection, supercar performance with grand touring amenities.

  • Cons

    Annoying brakes, intrusive wind and road noise, interior too derivative of the SL, purists will balk at the lack of a manual transmission.

    The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is an all-new supercar for 2005.

A true work of art

I am an avid exotic automobile collector and enthusiast. Out of all the Mercedes and Ferrari's I have ever owned, this is by far the most exhilarating experience. I would even put it ahead of my Ferrari 940. It is a very powerful yet nimble and handles like the tires are glued to the pavement. I would definitely recommend this to a serious car enthousiast if they are considering maybe for one of the Italian competitors.

I'm very pleased with my investment, and I suggest others to test drive this model. It may seem like a waste of money, but if you are like me, you'd rather pay an extra amount of money to get something you can rely on. The average person spends this much in fixing their car for the lifetime of their car, which is, on average, 6 years. I've had my other Mercedes for about 6.5 years. I had to get it fixed once throughout that time due to a fender-bender. I plan on the same level of reliability on my new Mercedes.




Disapointed

The 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR is hard to start and runs very rough. The front end shakes at about 60 miles per hour. I bought it for my wife but she will not drive it because it stalls all the time.
