..where is my check book, hunny??? What? You went shopping again? Jeez - another year of saving for a SLR :-(
Its looking good, especially those new abstract alternatives to traditional go-faster stripes
best roadster evar.
I believe roadsters are all convertibles
HMMM.. what do u think the sl R stands for ...
R usually equals Racing though right?
but ya anyway SLR is pretty insane.
The original SLR's were primarily race cars, so I agree with MB300E87 that the R means racing.
The SL means Sport Light, so Sports Light Racing seems appropiate.
its roadster people.
Anyone else besides me thinks the front look like ass?
Nope, if anything I'd say the back looks bad
the car is simply gorgueous.
It's camaflouged (sic). The rear is standard MB. The front is the new fascia.
Ah, makes sense.
From Webster's Dictionary: Main Entry: road·ster
1 a : a horse for riding or driving on roads b : a utility saddle horse of the hackney type
2 a : a light carriage : BUGGY b : an automobile with an open body that seats two and has a folding fabric top and a luggage compartment in the rear
SLR does not have a folding fabric top
If you would pay attention to the thread and what you are reading you will notice that I am saying that the SLR is NOT a roadster. Modena claims that it is and that this is proven by the "R" in the SLR. Hence, the definition I posted to show that in order for a car to be roadster it must be a convertable. The SLR is not a convertable and according to the article they will not be making a convertable version.
Yeah, instead of just straight lines, which merely increase overall speed and acceleration, curves and zigzags have the additional benefit of increasing traction and handling capabilities. Hard to imagine paint has such a drastic effect.
sweeet...lookin good...too lazy to read the specs
