Mercedes-Benz has changed the well regarded SLR McLaren from a coupe to a roadster for the 2008 model year. The engine ratings match the 2006 numbers of 617 horsepower and 575 ft-lbs of torque.

The Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR roadster is one of the most exclusive models being produced for the 2008 model year by any manufacturer. And while its sticker price may stop just short of a half million dollars, it offers performance that only a handful of production cars on the planet can match.
