Mercedes SLR breaks World record
It is official; the SLR is the coolest and fastest car in the world – I mean London. To back up my claim, I present you with a piece I found at Autoblog that they got from a British website. A weekly British auto magazine – Autocar, has tested nine cars and a motorcycle to find the fastest car (motorcycle) in London. In doing so, they had to close down the cities airport to ensure a safe environment to perform this record breaking stunt. The results have been submitted to the Guiness Book of World Records so that the SLR can be registered as the fastest car that has been driven legally in London. Below is the list of the cars that took part in this test and next to them is the speed they achieved on the-mile long runway. Mercedes McLaren SLR - 175.7 mph Ford GT - 174.3 mph Corvette Z06 - 167.0 mph Porsche Turbo - 162.6 mph BMW M6 - 162.5 mph Shelby Daytona Cobra - 159.7 mph Alpina B5 - 155.4 mph Bentley Flying Spur - 157.4 mph Vauxhall Maloo - 160.8 mph No data was given for the Motorcycle.
