The latest Mercedes SLR to come out of Woking will be a Roadster in a dashing orange, which will honor the historic color adopted by McLaren Automotive since its founding.

In anticipation of the presentation of the next P11, McLaren is continuing production of the latest prototypes of the supercar designed with Mercedes. In the meanwhile, construction has begun on the 75 super-exclusive cars dedicated to Stirling Moss, who raced the fasted time ever in the Mille Miglia in 1955 with a Mercedes 300 SLR. The career of the SLR coupe began in 2003 and ended in 2007. As expected, the production of the Roadster ended in 2009.


You can see the Stirling Moss SLR behind it.

To those confused:

1972 McLaren M8-F

And to remind everyone, they even did it twice in F1 testing. Back in 1998 with the MP4/13 and in 2006 with the MP4/21

That's really orange; a little too orange for me actually, I prefer a more copper look.

That's the Stirling Moss SLR. These are just the roadsters.

Only a car that extreme can pull off a color like that.
