The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss, unveiled in 2009, is a limited edition speedster variant of the SLR, paying homage to the 300 SLR. Only 75 were built exclusively for existing SLR owners. Sacrificing creature comforts for performance and aesthetics, it lacks a windscreen and roof. With a 641 brake horsepower, 5.4-liter supercharged AMG V-8 engine, it achieves extreme performance, reaching 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 354 km/h. Constructed with extensive carbon fiber, it saves 200 kilograms in weight.

This specific model, delivered to Luxemburg in December 2009, features a unique Crystal Antimon Grey exterior and Black and Anthracite leather interior with Silver Arrow 300 SL red trims. It has been driven 9,233 kilometers and participated in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz 1000 Miglia challenge. Offered with accessories like factory-provided goggles, it promises an exhilarating driving experience for enthusiasts.

This vehicle was sold for $3,211,250 USD at RM Sotheby’s in Dubai on 8 March 2024.
