Because the Stirling Moss hasn't got a roof, uses an upgraded carbon-fiber for the body, new carbon-ceramic brakes, and a new exhaust system, it's 300 kilograms lighter than the standard model. However, it's still powered by the 5.5L supercharged V8 borrowed from the SLR 722 S edition. So it develops 650hp, connected to a 5-speed automatic. So despite lacking any sort of roof or proper windscreen, the Stirling Moss can still achieve a top speed of 217mph and can reach 60mph in just 3.5 seconds, which is the fastest SLR yet.
The SLR Stirling Moss is also the most exclusive and most expensive SLR. Only 75 units will be built, at a price tag of €750,000. It's a collector's item for rich business men who are the only ones able to acquire a Stirling Moss.
Look for the SLR Stirling Moss at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show next month for its world debut.
