This contest is fueled by the following news: Mercedes-Benz CLK-class: A separate class in the widest range of Mercedes-Benz cars, which is emphasized by a resolutely modified design that has given elegance, dynamics and a modern character to the car. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren: In 1999, McLaren Cars signed an agreement with Daimler for the design and production of a sports car the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. As a result, the sale of the coupe Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren started in 2003. A similar Mercedes Benz, which has the combination of technical characteristics of a super car and also the facilities and comfort of luxury class car; A limited production of two cars a day is carried out in the Woking factory of McLaren Cars, United Kingdom. One person is responsible for each car. They are an exclusive, limited lot, and the production of which should be stopped at 3500 after 7 years of production and never ever restart the production. When the Coupe was released in the quantity of little over 1000 cars, the craze somewhat died down. Somehow it was necessary to revive the demand. The limited edition 722 cars with high output engine and more sports options of suspension were released in 2006. Since the car was low, rigid, being a better sports model, it quickly found the consumers. The next step was to create a cabriolet with a collapsible roof. After a year, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster was released with a price tag of approximately 600 000 euros and as of date, it is the most expensive and fastest roadster in the world. The technical characteristics of the Mercedes-Benz may not bring satisfaction. The maximum speed of it is 332 km/hr and with a collapsed roof 322 km/hr. It's a 635-powerful 5.4-litre V8 and with mechanical charging accelerates the fireball from 0-100 kmph within 3.8 sec. The extended bonnet, characteristic "gills", moved-back cabin, short rear portion and top-opening wing-doors almost make the viewer passion for high speeds. Even a glance at the design of the car it becomes obvious that its designers are inspired by the effective forms of "Uhlenhaut's coupe" and the modern "silver arrows" of the "Formula-1". The design of "Uhlenhaut's coupe" was taken from the 1950s from last century. It had the design and technicalities of the road version of the Coupe 300 SL with characteristic wing-doors (1954) and characteristics of racing cars, which were merged into the sports coupe 300 SLR. Sports cars were developed under the guidance of Rudolf Uhlenhaut and to date, it is accepted to name the cars after him. It is sufficient to mention "Uhlenhaut's Coupe" and at once it becomes clear to experts that the discussion is about the Coupe 300 SLR. The abbreviation SLR operates magically on motor racing fans. It became a symbol of automobile splendor and perfection. Most importantly, these principles formed the basis for the design of the legendary racing cars from Mercedes-Benz, which took part in races in 1955, such as Mille Miglia, Targa Florio or Tourist Trophy and registered wins three times. The car, designated by the abbreviation SLR, traditionally occupies a special place amongst powerful sports cars. Giving due to this tradition, Mercedes Benz and McLaren implemented a variety of technical innovations from motor racing into the production cars. As in the case of racing cars the "Formula -1" McLaren-Mercedes, the body of the new SLR is made from carbon fiber (CFK), ensuring a high energy absorption level at small weight and accordingly, the maximum protection of passengers. The SLR is the first production car in the world, whose front deformation zone is made entirely from carbon fiber. The h-tech engine, possessing a capacity of 460 kWt/626 h.p and the nature of a true racer, was developed by Mercedes-AMG division. The 5.4-litre V8 engine with mechanical charging is assembled by a single individual AMG engineer and bears his signature. The SLR is equipped with one of the most powerful engines, which are being used today in road and sports cars which are produced on a large scale. The gearbox is set automatically. However, by rotating one controller on the central console, it is possible to change the switching mode of gearbox, choosing between usual, sports or manual working algorithms and by using the second controller to change the changing speed of the gears in manual mode. The progressive technologies from racing sports in Mercedes Benz McLaren will be seen on the streets. Together with it, the new SLR McLaren adds a new impulse to the traditions of the sports cars of Gran Turismo and in addition with excellent dynamic properties also demonstrates high comfort. There's a variety of other technical innovations; the increase in safety and comfort to the highest level from new air bags for protection of the feet, powerful bi-xenon low and high beam headlights to a hi-tech acoustic system and a dynamic navigating system.
