The Mercedes SL GTR is a concept study of a Mercedes Benz homologation special for the 21st century. Designed by Mark Hostler, this concept car aims to offer rider with purest expression of road car driving feel and performance. The design incorporates race car chassis technology, race suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, racing tires and a Nismo designed 5.5 liter v8 race engine from Nissan GTR GT1 race car. Cutting edge aerodynamics combined with sharp Mercedes Benz styling creates a car with an extreme, race car aesthetic and unique detail and style. The bodywork has been designed to look shrink wrapped around the mechanical components, taking out all unnecessary volume from the surfaces and exaggerating the cooling and induction intakes around the bodywork. Together with the details of the Mercedes Benz grille, large rear spoiler, 5 spoke magnesium wheels, and a classic teardrop shape racecar canopy, the Mercedes SL GTR is as close to a Le Mans racer a driver can get.
