The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is a GT car that was jointly developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. SLR stands for "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" meaning "Sport, Light, Racing" in English.

It was altered with a number of body redesigns, performance improvements, and special edition models during its production which lasted from 2003 to 2010. This included the 722 Edition and the Stirling Moss Edition.

The 5.4L engine is a 232kg SOHC V8 unit that is entirely hand crafted out of aluminium and fitted with a Lysholm-type twin-screw supercharger that rotates at 23,000 rpm to produce 13 PSI of boost.

The SLR's carbon-ceramic brake discs to provide better stopping power as well as provide fade resistance up to 1,200°C and an automatic air brake that provides up to an additional 90% of total aerodynamic drag.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Need for Speed: Most Wanted features the SLR as both a stock vehicle and as the vehicle of choice by Blacklist racer #2 - Bull. The SLR is one of the fastest vehicles in the title alongside the Porsche Carrera GT and is unlocked after the player defeats Ronnie in the Career mode.

It has a lower top speed and worse handling in comparison to the Carrera GT but compensates with superior acceleration when fully upgraded. The SLR has a price tag of $300,000.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The SLR appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 3 exotic class vehicle. It is also one of the fastest vehicles in the title alongside the Audi Le Mans Quattro, Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 and Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec (R34). It has a price tag of $320,000.

The SLR is unlocked differently depending on the player's initial car class choice at the beginning of the Career mode:

  • Tuner Career - Take over the Silverton Refinery Territory in Silverton.
  • Muscle Career - Take over the Infinity Park Territory in Silverton.
  • Exotic Career - Take over the Neon Mile Territory in Silverton.

A modified SLR McLaren must be driven in the gold tier speedtrap event of the challenge series.
