The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is made by McLaren Automotive, who specialize in engineering and building lightweight Formula 1 racing cars. For 2008, McLaren has taken the SLR through an automotive metamorphasis which has produced a roadster. A fully retractable semi-automatic soft top replaces the fixed roof of the original car.
Powered by an AMG supercharged 5.5 liter, 617-hp V-8 engine, paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, the SLR McLaren Roadster can reach 206 mph.
