Why am I seeing 2.1 million, 1 million, 500,000. All over the place for the SLR. It says the MRSP is 450,000 USD on the mercedes site. I guess the dealers get to choose how much they sell it for? or can anyone clear this up for me? I'm unaware of how it works.

MSRP stands for manufacture suggested retail price not MIRP or manufacture imposed retail price.

Will the stock market go up next week or will gold slide in value? Those kind of questions can't be answered with certainty. However one thing is for sure that investing in a car is extremely risky. Very few cars appreciate significantly in value over just a few short years.

"Mercedes-Benz and their McLaren Formula 1 partners are committed to building 3,500 V8, 5.5-litre, turbocharged SLRs over seven years, but for those waiting in line the company has not ruled out extending the production run."

Also, Since Mclaren and Mercedes have ended their partnership,the project 8,9 and 10 have been cancelled. The C199 is the only vehicle they will build together. There has been alot of friction from day 1. Mclaren locked out all DCAG employees. That started it because DCAG wanted production stepped to 2 cars a day.
