Mercedes’ McLaren SLR is nearing the end of its production life and the German manufacturer has no plans to send the thoroughbred supercar off quietly. Speculation has been growing about a final special edition speedster version of the SLR 722 - and it looks like the rumours were true. These exclusive spy shots just taken somewhere in the heart of Germany reveal Mercedes has one last trick up its sleeve.

Germany’s auto motor und sport, has revealed the last 75 examples of the SLR will actually be light-weight speedster versions of the supercar. The limited edition car will have no roof and only a small wind screen in place of the car’s windshield.

Further deletion of the air conditioning system and power windows plus the use of composite materials in the body panels will shave about 440 pounds off the SLR’s curb weight. The result is a car that can accelerate from 0-186 mph in just 26 seconds, on its way to a top speed of about 217 mph.

Sources can also reveal the limited edition SLR is expected to retail from about 450,000 euros.
