For the last several years Mercedes-Benz has been collaborating with its Formula One partner to produce the SLR supercar. The half million dollar 617 hp SLR has been a popular ride with celebutantes such as Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. However the SLR is coming to the end of its production run and with that Mercedes is building a special edition that probably won't appeal much to those who prefer to keep their hair in order.
The SLR Stirling Moss is named for the British driver who conquered the Mille Miglia in 1955 in the original 300 SLR. Like that famous racing car the new Stirling Moss has no top or even a windshield for that matter. What it does have is even more power than before with 650 hp. For those with deep pockets and no fear of mussing their hair, Mercedes will only be building 75 examples of the SLR Stirling Moss before shutting down the line permanently. For those looking for serious speed and wind in the hair, the last 75 SLRs will be priced at €750,000.
