The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss was unveiled in 2009 as a limited edition version of the original SLR (introduced 2003). It was built as a homage to Sir Stirling Moss, one of the most renowned and revered British racing drivers of all time, and only 75 units were built. This particular SLR Stirling Moss is for sale by James Edition with only 507 km (315 miles) on the clock.

The SLR you see here is located in Dubai and it is a collector's item that's hardly ever seen the road. The car has been showcased during various events and has been driven by two-time F1 world champion Mika Hakkinen for an Hermes PaketShop commercial filmed in Barcelona.

The car is obviously in excellent condition and comes with factory accessories, documentation and service history. It is painted silver with red and black leather interior, like the vast majority of SLR Stirling Moss examples, although rumour has it there's a red SLR hidden somewhere in the world.

Sir Stirling Moss's biography is worth a read because the man is a living legend for both Mercedes and motorsports. As a matter of fact, Mercedes built the SLR as a tribute to the original 300 SLR that won the 1955 Mille Miglia with Moss at the wheel.

It is powered by a 5.5 L supercharged V8 putting out 641 hp through the rear wheels. The original asking price was 1 million dollars but, as expected, it has appreciated with value and is now worth a lot more than that. The price for SLR Stirling Moss, for example, is $2.55M.
