The new SLR super sports GT car showcases the collective experience of Mercedes-Benz and its Formula 1 partner McLaren in the development and production of high-performance sports cars. This unique combination of expertise is evident not only in the pioneering developments and impressive performance of the new SLR, but also in its high levels of safety and practicality.

Mounted behind the front wheels in a front mid-engine position, each supercharged, intercooled V8 engine is hand-built at AMG's manufacturing facility in Affalterbach, Germany. As a prime example of the engine's innovative design, its dry-sump lubrication system includes a remote oil tank that eliminates any conventional oil pan or sump, allowing the engine to be mounted lower in the frame for better aerodynamics and an even lower center of gravity. Additionally, dry sump systems prevent oil starvation during extremely hard acceleration, cornering and braking.
