Convertible Mercedes SLR McLaren

The SLR is an incredible car (It came eighth in our top super car poll) its latest version the 722 Edition is even better. Britain’s AutoExpress magazine seems to have some insider knowledge when they wrote about an upcoming convertible version of the SLR. Although we have received contrary information in the past saying that the roof is necessity and that it bears a lot of the stress of the vehicle so we assume that the car will be completely remade. However the AutoExpress article indicates that the overall design will remain unchanged. Apparently a prototype is being built at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey in Britain at the moment and the car should be released within six months so possibly at the Detroit Motor Show in January. Performance is not expected to change between the two models.
