How it
all began …

What happens when people who have a burning passion for one and the same thing meet up? When they recognise the telltale glint in each other’s eye, without even having to speak and no matter which part of the world they hail from? And when this fascination stirs the emotions of automobile enthusiasts like no other?

Nothing unites people more than passion. And it is precisely this spirit that forms the lifeblood of one of the most exclusive clubs: the SLR.CLUB.

If we trace back through history, the fascination for the SLR has its roots in the 1950s. Although the famous Uhlenhaut Coupé – the prototype named after its brilliant designer Rudolf Uhlenhaut – never went into series production, the fascination surrounding it lived on in people’s hearts. It was precisely this legendary car that then formed the basis for the development of the modern-day super sports car: the SLR.

It was produced for a small, choice community of aficionados, who closely followed the development of ‘their’ super sports car from the very beginning.

A blind date.

The year is 2002. The venue is the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. Way ahead of the official world premiere at the International Motor Show and at a time when the Vision SLR was still the talk of super sports car circles, the fans and carte blanche buyers of the SLR came together for a sort of ‘blind date’.

The subsequent encounter at the test track in Idiada, Spain did not take place until a good year later. Here, under the guidance of professionals in motor sport, the die-hard following enjoyed the exclusive privilege of a hands-on experience with prototypes of their vehicle out on the track for the very first time. The countdown to the world premiere had started.

Code word SLR.CLUB.

Since being established on 8 July 2006 in Le Castellet, the SLR.CLUB has based its existence on the support and passion for the world’s most beautiful common cause: the SLR. Every owner of an SLR became a member of the SLR.CLUB, a small, choice, exclusive circle of gentlemen drivers. And each and every member actively shared their own personality, ideas, suggestions and ambitions, and so the SLR.CLUB became a unique and close worldwide network.

From the very beginning, Mercedes-Benz actively involved customers in the development of the super sports car – an approach that continued to be adopted consistently. Customers of the SLR Stirling Moss, for example, had the opportunity to actively contribute to various aspects of the vehicle’s development, from the clay model stage right through to the first test drives in the prototype.

Consequently, from 2009 Mercedes-Benz asked members to shape the culture of their SLR.CLUB. For the next 8 years, Michael Egger, Clemens van den Berg, Fritz Steinman, Andreas Prahl and Aloyse Wagner – all Club members and passionate SLR drivers – took the club to the next level.

Since its inaugural meeting on 10 September 2017, the SLR.CLUB has been handed over to the SLR owners and became an official brand club. With the commitment of the Mercedes-Benz board the SLR.CLUB will remain an exceptional circle and can rely on their future support. Hence the SLR.CLUB will remain a strong community with a long-term future, dedicated to our outstanding car that’s destined to become as big a legend as its predecessor.

In the meantime, you can rest assured that we are doing everything we can to enhance the SLR.CLUB with some unique experiences in the future too, including new touring routes, new driving experiences, new lifestyle events and new associations with some very promising partners.

Because we are all agreed on one thing: the legend of the SLR lives on.
