Yes it had its faults, who doesn't ?, but for what it was and what it could do, i still don't think it has an equal. Mercedes requirement for the ultimate coupe combined with McLarens ability for performance and build quality.....and boy is it fast

Just like a late-model Aston Martin is generally touted as a "gentleman's racer", the MB-McLaren SLR is an esteemed boulevard-cruiser in'disguise overlord. It it is what it is... an everyday, livable GT'esque extreme supercar! Those seeking sensual exotic'ness will pine for a Carrera-GT. Those longing for robust nostalgia will acquire a Ford-GT. Those lusting lust will strive for a V12 Ferrari GT. Those longing to be civilly understated will seek an Aston Martin. And those w/ S-class tastes & SL-fancy will be bemused w/ an SLR.

Every marque (namely it's halo-car) has it's appeal & niche`, whether MB or Aston Martin or Ferrari. . .

It was a good car, but not "great." Mostly let down by the slush gearbox. Would have been interesting to see it built with a DCT and -200 kg of MB luxury
