That is the Mercedez Maclaren SLR. Its very expensive and one of the only two cars that has better times than the Ford GT on Top Gear (the other is the Carrera GT)

Here is the Top Gear Episode.

It is well worth the download, but the file is huge.

Here is the BIG Version, Better Quality 34 Meg file

Notice that the engine is a DOHC Supercharged (twin screw blower) like the 03 cobra, and sounds similar to it, but also has another propelor sound.

What a car, what a shop and I like the idea of chase stands. :thumbsup:

That shop looks like a hospital, see the person in white. You would think some of those guys were fixing to go in to perform open heart surgery...oh yea...and that car is HAWT!

Edit: Does anyone have the Mclaren F1 top gear vid (if they did one). I love that car, I have always loved that car and I would love to see the Top Gear vid. Thanks.

I see an SL65 all the time in The Woodlands. Sort of a baby McLaren, but it doesn't suck. v12, 650 hp, 750 ft/lbs., cost about 175k, only about 500 produced I think.
