The Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss was unveiled at the 2009 North American International Auto Show; a lightweight speedster variant of the SLR as strong in performance as it is arresting in appearance. With just 75 examples built, offered exclusively to existing SLR owners, the car is incredibly rare.

Nearly all the creature comforts of the car it is based on were sacrificed in the pursuit of performance, aesthetics and extreme driver (and passenger) enjoyment. This included the windscreen and roof, which not only adds up to the visual drama but ramps up the intensity of the driving experience ten-fold. The end result is an unbridled driving experience with a 0-100km/h in a time of just 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of 354km/h courtesy of a 478kW 5.5 litre supercharged AMG V8.
