Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss Edition

Newer Older

Built for the Autos Aus Deutschland challenge over at LUGNuts is this exclusive 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss Edition. Its a symbiotic partnership between Mercedes-Benz and the British Mclaren group and was to signify the very last of the SLR line. Topping at 220 MPH, this extreme roadster has no proper windshield and can be completely closed off to protect against theft and the elements. Only 75 were ever produced and none were ever intended to be sold in the US...although at least one was snuck into the states. Enjoy.

    So much for my bid that you were going to build a VW Thing.

    What a beauty!

    A super car from a super builder! Love this work of art, great work on the overall shape of the front end and the working elements.
    My new favorite out of your collection.

    i guess it's okay, for a deuzenkreuger. it's no Dodge viper or Ford Gt or anything... ;)

    See, when you told me to build one of these, I was thinking the older version of the car would be easier, but it still proved to much a challenge. This version was out of the question for me, but you managed to pull it off great. Awesome shaping all around, easily recognizable from the thumbnail. Nice build sir!

    Wow! Thanks for all the attention, guys. This photo made it within your top 20 faved pics...and on the first day! This was a build that fought me from the get-go and for awhile I was thinking it was going to become the first in a long time that I would have had to succumb to failure. Things sort of fell together nicely in the last hours of building. But the real kicker is...these shots were taken through a broken camera! At least I thought it was broken at the time. When I turned on the camera to take these shots there was no image on the large digital viewfinder. I had to use the small, old fashioned viewfinder. The tiny image that I saw through the lens seemed well cropped and centered but when I loaded the photos onto my computer they needed lots of cropping. This morning I charged the battery to see if that would help and turned on my camera again. No image in the large digital screen...but then I realized the display settings were off and with the press of a button the problem was solved...well sort of. My camera is still temperamental and tries to take blurry pics most of the time. You have to coax it into operating correctly. Maybe its high time for a new one. Anyway, thanks for all the kudos and support, everyone. I really appreciate it.

    There is only one thing I could imagine to make this awesome MOC even more impressive: If it was made from silver LEGO pieces...;)

    Excellent work Lino!

    Instantly recognizable, and that's quite an achievement with such a difficult car! Well done, sir.
