Alastair Bols Ltd, in affiliation with McLaren Special Operations (MSO), are proud to present the McLaren Edition SLR upgrade package.
Offered for sale is the strictly limited edition upgrade programme that has been driven by the in-depth experience of the McLaren team combined with existing SLR owner’s feedback and wishes. Having driven both the standard and McLaren Edition SLR’s, I believe the upgrade changes the standard into what perhaps “should have been” in the first place, but the upgrades are easy to fully appreciate and complete the already brilliant SLR.
Using the full width and breadth of McLaren’s expertise in carbon fibre, Formula1 wind tunnel and 7 post handling rigs and computational fluid dynamics, the MSO team have realised the additional potential of the SLR and gives the car significant handling and ride improvements in all areas but also a new aggressive visual energy.
The overall weight of the car has been reduced and combined with the new aero package gaining 15% more downforce than the already impressive 722 Edition, the McLaren Edition SLR is a testament to what can be done by the MSO team.
Available to all current SLR owners, either Coupe or Roadster, the McLaren Edition SLR will be strictly limited to only 25 units worldwide.
Thus making this not only the most exciting and capable SLR ever built, but also the most desirable in its rarity.The McLaren Edition SLR includes:
Full repaint and/or colour change in a huge variety of (almost) any colour.
-Entirely new carbon fibre front bumper and floor diffuser built from hybrid Kevlar composite, with optional Visual Carbon Fibre splitter and wing vanes* giving greater downforce and front brake cooling.
-Highly distinctive bonnet top shell modifications – incorporating front wheel arch air exit louvres that, just as in the 722GT racing car, exhaust high pressure air from the front wheel arch to aid front brake disc cooling and front end down force.
-New larger exhaust chimney top shell bonnet air vents in visual carbon fibre – aiding cooling and weight reduction over the standard items.
-New side panels in lightweight carbon fibre to reduce weight but also giving a striking new visual inspired by the McLaren “Speed Mark” logo.
-New side, rear and wheel centre enamel McLaren badges to indicate one of the limited editions.
-Rear Arches widened by carbon fibre inserts bonded to the original body.
-Revised carbon fibre/composite** rear bumper including side air vents to exhaust turbulent high pressure wheel arch air.
-New rear diffuser in visual carbon fibre – aiding rear down force and visually dynamic
-Larger active rear Air Brake with bespoke calibration and boot lid modifications – contributing to further refine the aesthetic appearance, higher rear down force as well as moving the centre of pressure to improve the braking stability and ability.MECHANICALS
-MSO SUSPENSION*** – 10mm lower ride height and significantly re-engineering the standard set up. Incorporating new springs and dampers, the ride has been highly improved for road qualities whilst not diminishing the cars track performance. Resulting in overall improved spring rates and low speed bump damping.
-MSO STEERING*** – Re-engineered steering column angle, replacement and re-phased universal joints give a massive improvement to the bump steer and nervousness on the road. The vastly improved and progressive steering gives a direct but comfortable and confident feed back to the driver whilst handling is improved through eliminating corner to corner pitching.
-MSO LIGHTWEIGHT SPORTS EXHAUST**** – A full replacement ceramic coated silencer system for reduction of weight, but not only weight! The unique sound of the SLR engine has been fully realised with this new system so that under throttle it gives an awe-inspiring, brutal and thunderous tone. GT comfort has not been compromised as there is no cabin intrusion on long journey driving.Visual carbon fibre on splitter and wings – POA
