Developed in a unique partnership between Mercedes-Benz, AMG, and McLaren Automotive, the SLR McLaren took the supercar world by storm upon its unveiling in 1999. Rather than pursue all-out performance, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren sought to create a car that could easily outperform its competition while also serving as a capable, comfortable, and luxurious high-speed grand tourer. Powered by an AMG-tuned, 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 engine, the SLR’s performance was eye-opening. Good for a reported 617 horsepower, the SLR could sprint to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds on its way to a 206-mph top speed.

Supremely engineered and manufactured to incredible standards at McLaren’s facilities in Woking, United Kingdom, the SLR represents one of the finest blends of supercar and grand tourer—and with its eye-catching “butterfly” doors, its spectacle persists even when parked.

Cloaked in Crystal Palladium Gray, this well-equipped SLR McLaren was sold to its first and only owner via Mercedes-Benz of Danbury, Connecticut. An accompanying window sticker lists the car as equipped with Silver Arrow 300 SL Red Leather trim, two-tone steering wheel, red brake calipers, and floor mats with leather edging for a final MSRP of $467,450. The car has lived a pampered 18 years, as evidenced by its 6,515-mile odometer reading at time of cataloguing and collection of regular service invoices, all performed by Mercedes-Benz of Danbury. Furthering its exceptional care, the car has reportedly always been kept in climate-controlled storage and was treated to a new set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires in August 2023.

Finished in a highly desirable color scheme and benefiting from dedicated care under the consignor’s sole ownership, this SLR McLaren stands as a stellar example of the impressive joint effort—likely never to be repeated—from three automotive titans that gave us one of the most iconic and well-rounded supercars of all time.
