Thanks for the info and Pictures, Erik/Mr Janne!
I like this car. I like it alot!
I weren't too keen on the concept car(s) of the SLR but the production version is spot on. Even more so in black. :bow:
I get the feeling Mclaren came up with the idea of the Mercedes Badge on the front, connected to the engine in that CAI manner and the exhausts. One great Package.
Now, all that there needs to be is a Right Hand Driver version... :(
Oh and a rather generous donation to myself, from Mclaren. :p

In my opinion the first interior was much better than the recent... as they say in the test drives ( Car, Evo) itīs pretty cramped.
What do you think...?

I agree, Jetset. Looks too similar to the one in the SL-series. For that much money, it would have been nice to receive a more unique interior more in-line with the prototype car.

Interioir looks like a SLK to me...
Wait until you see the pictures of the Bentley Continental GT interioir around here...HUGE article in preparation!

The interior of the Continental GT is a marvel indeed. Sat in one during the press days at the NY auto show earlier this year. As anyone imagine, I did not want to leave!
Looking forward to the article! :0:
