My favourite car!!!

It might not be the fastest car in the world, the 2004 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR is my favourite car up to date. The SLR is developed by Mercedes-Benz and the McLaren F1 team. The car was inspired by the modern formula 1 cars. The car component mostly made up from F1 recipe, the carbon fibre, the light and strong... This car is amazing, I love this car for the very fast speed and the formula 1 design... very classy!
