Oh yes. Yes I remember this. Mad, mad Mercedes.
McLaren Mercedes, remember. This was a very special edition of the car McLaren and Mercedes built together – the SLR – only this time, it went back in time to pay homage to one of mankind’s finest ever victories: that of Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson’s incredible 1955 Mille Miglia drive.
This then, is simply called the SLR Stirling Moss, and in a week of tributes to the Big Man, it is fitting to remember it.
