The result of a partnership between two of motorsport's most respected names, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was seemingly the supercar that could do anything. With a hand-built 5.4-litre V-8 fitted with a Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger, the SLRs engine produced 617 brake horsepower at 6,500 rpm, which helped it achieve a top speed of 207 mph. However, the car was not about all-out performance like its primary competition, the Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche Carrera GT.
Not only was the SLR a world-class supercar but it also could easily perform double duty as a high-speed grand tourer as well. The car boasts a front-mid-engine layout with the engine sitting behind the front wheels and just ahead of the cabin. This helped to improve the SLR's handling by giving it near-perfect weight distribution, but it also gave the car a rather spacious boot and cabin. Comfortable over long distances and fast enough to outrun just about anything else on the road, the SLR could seemingly do anything.
