Mercedes To Auction Off SLR McLaren Roadster

Written by tonks on October 23, 2008

The new Challenger, Camaro, and Mustang are not the only ones that are going up for auction this year. The McLaren SLR Roadster has reached its end – but Mercedes isn’t ready to let it go. Or rather consumers are wishing that they wouldn’t.

Mercedes will be auctioning off one of the last convertible SLR’s in the U.S. Obviously this means that you need some serious money in order to participate so only the wealthy few will be involved. We can only imagine which collector will have the winning bid.

The SLR Roadster has been styled with Sienna Pearl metallic paint and Tobacco Brown leather. This means that it will be one of a kind and no one else will have one that looks like. This makes it more exotic and naturally will drive up the price and value of it.

The auction will start November 20th at 1 p.m. EST and will end at 5 p.m. The bidding will start at $529,500. Proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
