    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.

    It's camaflouged (sic). The rear is standard MB. The front is the new fascia.

    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. :fawk:

    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. :)
