Premium Super Sports Car
Formula One-derived auto constructor McLaren Cars cooperated with DaimlerChrysler to produce the Mercedes-Benz SLR, which debuted at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. The long nose/short deck body is built of carbon composite material, and a powered by an AMG tuned 5.5L V8 screw-type supercharger engine, located in front position for optimum weight balance. Monstrous power output of 466.8 kw at BSOOrpm (626 hp) and 79.6kgm torque at 3250 - 5000 rpm is handled by a 5-speed automatic transmission. The car Is capable of amazingly fast acceleration and super-quick braking thanks to its massive carbon ceramic brake discs and pop-up rear spoiler. The name SLR (Sports Light Racing) was originally used on the 1955 sports radng car 300 SLR, and made a comeback with this Benz-McLaren machine.

High-Class Model
This 195mm long model impressively reproduces the SLR's elongated form, which is enabled by its front-mounted engine, a rarity among super sports cars. Accents such as front hood fin, and horizontal fins on fender slits are depicted by separate parts. Internal mechanisms reproduced by separate parts include supercharger and engine air box, which are simple to attach yet add incredible realism. The luxurious interior exhibits minutely detailed seats and dashboard controls. Gloss and matte-type metal plated parts as well as metal transfers ensure high quality finish. After assembly, the Gull-wing doors feature working hinges with metal shafts for realistic and smooth opening. Metal stays allow doors to be posed in open position for full display of interior. The front hood also opens with 2-step hinge, for range of movement just like the real car, and allows display of exquisitely reproduced engine upper surface. Line this gorgeous model alongside Tamiya's 1/24 scale Porsche Carrera GT and Enzo Ferrari to showcase a fantastic lineup of 3 of the top premium supercars in the world!
