Mercedes-Benz McLaren to debut in Frankfurt

The new Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren road car will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in the autumn. The limited-edition SLR will then go on sale in Europe towards the end of the year before a launch in the United States in the middle of next year. The car is expected to be priced in the region of $350,000. The new car, which will be built from carbon composite materials will be powered by a supercharged V8 engine developed and built by Mercedes-AMG.

The launch will mark the revival of the SLR name, made famous in the 1950s in sportscar racing by the likes of Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss.
