It’s unusual that a car becomes connected to that many superlatives like the SLR. And indeed, it’s not only a car – it’s pure emotion. Aspirations of the good old times resurrect again, when motorraces were real adventures for bold men.
We remember the glorious SLR-races of the 50s and the legendary roadworthy coupéversions, which became history as the so-called “Uhlenhaut-Coupé”.
The SLR is connecting the myth of the old Silver Arrows with the high-tech of the Formula 1 bolids of the present. During the development of the SLR, Mercedes and McLaren exchanged all their know-how of motorsport.
The result: Extravagant elegance, unbelievable power, extraordinary riding qualities, highest comfort, highest possible safety. The untouchable superiority of the SLR imparts the driver a feeling of freedom and adventure. That’s the way motoring is ment to be – kilometer by kilometer.
Extraordinary originals are demanding extraordinary models: The model in the big scale 1:12 comes up to the highest expectations of model engineers art. During the development, CMC was using the costly sterolithography method. This digitalisation technology made it possible for the CMC production engineers to produce true to the original and accurate to size body- and aggregate parts. To become up to the noble character of the original, the body of the 3,1 kg in costly handwork produced model is made of 0,6 mm thick pressed copper plate.
