Reminiscent of the SLR racing sports car, the myth of the silver arrow and a tribute to Sir Stirling Moss: The Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss combines spectacular design with the most demanding technology and offers a unique driving experience for all the senses. A limited edition of just 75 vehicles, this is a high-class classic car for sportsmen and enthusiasts. The newly developed shape of the SLR Stirling Moss conveys tremendous dynamics. The long engine hood, the vehicle body that merges optically with the interior and the compact, muscular tail illustrate the myth of the SLR in the same way as the long-drawn scoops with integrated roll bars behind the headrests, the facet-like, black painted ventilation grids on the side and the bonnet. Very high side skirts, the powerfully contoured fender and the gull-wing doors that open to the front complete the emotional aesthetic of the SLR Stirling Moss. The so-called tonneau cover made of carbon can close the vehicle. When both the tonneau cover and the doors are closed, the SLR Stirling Moss looks like a sculpture.
Technically, the SLR Stirling Moss has inherited the best genes of the SLR family and benefits from Mercedes-Benz’ extensive experience. The body made from carbon, the newly developed monocoque, the extremely light 1,551 kg curb weight and excellent aerodynamics and safety mean that the SLR Stirling Moss brings you unlimited driving pleasure. The combination of new technology and historical class is beyond any doubt. The SLR Stirling Moss gets its impressive performance of 478 kW / 650 hp from its AMG 5.5 litre supercharged V8 engine with a maximum torque of 820 NM, which accelerates the puristic sports car to a top speed of 350 km/h. Acute amazement and silence might best describe the reactions when the SLR Stirling Moss passes by. A closed underbody in connection with a massive diffuser ensures the necessary downforce, thus allowing for such dynamic sporty driving pleasure.
The interior is designed to be as puristic as the exterior: The interior has been reduced to the essentials. Valuable materials used in the interior underline the unique character of the SLR Stirling Moss. On the underside of the gear knob, the engraved signature of the eponym in aluminium is also the name of the man who let this vehicle become a classic car. Bodywork that, while giving the impression of being monolithic with historical elements such as the scoop made of carbon, reflects the perfectly staged combination of a nostalgic racing car and a modern supercar design. The SLR Stirling Moss on offer here is one of only four vehicles built in white, of which only two were made with black carbon fibre and Xenon headlamps. This is the rarest SLR Stirling Moss configuration. This vehicle was delivered in late autumn 2009 to a great collector in Berlin who gave the vehicle the best place in his collection for the next 6 years. During this time, the Stirling Moss was rarely moved and so it is not surprising that at the time of the sale to its second owner, in March 2015, the car had just 429 km on the clock.
Upon purchasing the SLR Stirling Moss, the new owner already had concrete plans for his vehicle, and so he promptly began to prepare the car technically for the anniversary edition of 50th Mille Miglia in May 2015. This took place at Mercedes-Benz in Stuttgart. On 27 April 2017, the vehicle obtained its individual authorisation from TÜV in Munich. Thus there was nothing standing in the way of Mille Miglia and the SLR followed in the footsteps of its predecessor. Having successfully completed this still demanding long-haul trip, the SLR returned to a calm life. In the following months, the owner moved his car only on special occasions and the mileage remained low. The car was serviced again at Mercedes-Benz in June 2016 with 3,761 km on the clock. In autumn of the same year, the owner finally decided to sell his car.
We are happy to be able to offer this SLR as one of the world's rarest and most unusual collector cars. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
