Named after a famous driver, this SLR pays homage to the 1955 Mercedes-Benz SLR 300, which won some races I have never heard of before crashing at Le Mans and killing 83 people. That is not a very informative sentence, but I felt it was important to demonstrate that I can do rudimentary internet research by finding an article about the car from a website I have never visited before. I am not sure why.
Here are some new pics from the North American International Auto Show. Disgustingly beautiful.
