Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Edition is back in limited numbers [video]

Updated McLaren Edition SLR will be limited series of just 25 units

A new McLaren Edition SLR has debuted at the Essen Motor Show.

Here's a video of the model.

Yes, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was discontinued only last year but McLaren has now made available an updated version in a limited series.

The new McLaren Edition SLR comes with the same 5.4 liter V8 with 626 PS (460 kW / 620 bhp) as the last model but features a new aerodynamic kit and modified steering and suspension set-ups.

This latest McLaren Edition SLR will be limited to just 25 units.

Pricing details were not made available.

Check out the video for an up-close look.

The front of this car looks awful....it really looks like MB are taking the p***. Same engine and a restyled front bumber is pretty much the only difference. It's probably MB doing a survey of how many stupid idiots are out there with money ready to part with on an car that has finished production.

The SLS development mules had some Viper body panels, so all these idiots think it was a joint project. McLaren must have too many leftover parts. There are so many special edition SLRs, not a single one of them is actually special. Just let it die

@ Hero Sina , wrong , that was just a rumour from an unnamed source. i don't believe Chrysler intended the next viper to have an electric version and gullwing doors. besides , the AMG team started working at the SLS right after the SLR was completed.

I find this hard to believe. MB have SLS, and Mclaren the MP4-12C, so why would the go ahead be given by MB or Mclaren for any more SLR's? I think an update of 'old' or rebuilding of damaged SLR's being more likely for this run of 25.

Seriously, this looks like a cheap tuning kit - absolutely tasteless and really not like the usual elegant Mercedes-Benz style. I'm really surprised that they are offering this...

one of the best ever!!!! at Mercedes-AMG-McLaren was always crazy with top of the range Benz, every mighty Merc has it's own designation: SLR McLaren - Batman's ride, SLS AMG Gullwing - Devil's (Satan's ride) and SL66 AMG Black Series - Darth Vader's ride :)))

I have an older SLR, I wish it was turbocharged as the whine of the supercharger over the engines song spoils the experience. Also many of the interior components look cheap and break easily. I can see why it has not sold well.

Looks a bit different than original first one from 2004, rather looks like tuned version of original. Little bit overdesigned but some elements looks nice.
