The Ultra-Rare SLR McLaren You’ve Never Heard Of

With huge thanks to Collecting Cars, I get the chance to check out a remarkably unusual variation of the iconic McLaren … 1 of just 25 McLaren Editions.

Check out the auction listing here:

This Roadster is an extremely uncommon open-top supercar, boasting a totally unique requirements, and incredibly low mileage. It has actually been treasured by simply one private owner from brand-new. Under the bonnet is a 5.4-litre supercharged V8, coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission with Touchshift control.

It is understood that just 25 examples of the SLR McLaren were transformed by MSO to 'Edition' spec, and just six of those are thought to have actually been the Roadster design. Alongside the apparent aerodynamic bodywork modifications, appealing side-exhaust exhausts and modified interior, McLaren Unique Operations (MSO) also fitted updated suspension, applied a custom engine tune, and customized the guiding setup. This original UK-market vehicle was originally delivered in Crystal Laurite Silver paintwork, with 'Silver Arrow 300 SL' red leather, and was turned over to its owner in September 2007 at the SLR Centre of Quality at Brooklands.

The cars and truck returned to McLaren in January 2009, when an agreement was signed to transform the vehicle to the current 'McLaren Edition' specification. This included a full repaint in Alabaster White, red enamel badges on both sides and the boot cover, red 'tick' wheel centres, the 722 Edition aerodynamic package, 722 tinted lights, and the 722S design alloy wheels. Inside, raised seat fronts were set up, a bespoke 'McLaren Edition' badge was applied to the radio cover, and carbon kick plates were fitted. Lastly, a louder sports exhaust was set up, and the revised suspension settings were likewise requested.

In 2010, even more upgrades were installed by MSO, which included the front wheel arch vents, carbon-fibre door mirrors, and repainted brake callipers in a lively red hue. The seats were re-trimmed to McLaren's most current specs, and a carbon-fibre steering wheel was also fitted. In total, the 'McLaren Edition' conversion works to this automobile came to ₤ 106,831. More recently, the cars and truck has been repainted once again, this time to lustrous grey shade. In the sunlight, this colour reflects specks of gold and reds, representing McLaren's picked colour for this Edition. A plaque mounted behind the gear lever signifies that this is '001' of the minimal run of just 25 SLRs transformed by MSO.
