2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)
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.
The stance is very stark and yet very refined. Its a very elegant car that reminds me of the older Lamborgini's.
It would be neat to have a gullwing version of this car. It seems like the Germans have hit all the bases on this one. It needs no real improvements. It has it all.
