Black SLR???

I thought the SLR was only available in Silver for some reason, but I saw one at Sparks (A40 - London) yesterday for sale in Black,... then damn thing looked HOT. There was also a Bentley Continental GT and a few other exotics there, but the SLR was in a class of its own,.... something you don't hear me say very often. (will try to get some pics soon)

Any thoughts?

RE: Black SLR???

would love to, but it would be hard to convince my brother to buy one for me (i'm out of cash for this year - building a house), since it is a V8, and the fact that a renntech SL/CL/S600 is WAY faster[:(!] I'll probably wait to see if mercedes really does launch the E65,... the rumour is that it is already ready for production..

according to Jay Leno in his columns for Popular Mechanics the SLR will do 217 MPH with the AC running... and he was in the car when this speed was achieved.

here is the link to the article...

RE: Black SLR???

I bet they had the AC on because if they had the window open his jaw would have created too much downforce[:D][:D][:D]

RE: Black SLR???

I don't care if its a V8,... all of a sudden I'm in love with the SLR!! (better start backpeddling now)

I'm going to have to convince my brother to get one (so I can get it from him a few years down the line)[;)].

ANY merc looks best in black[}:)]
