Incomparable open-air feel. There it stands, open for all to admire. An automotive work of art. The SLR Roadster, a super sports car that redraws the boundaries. And its long, squat looks are not just for show. They are essential, for only the combination of sleek underbody, front splitter, diffusers and rear AIRBRAKE can produce the necessary downforce, which translates directly into traction and, therefore, driving stability. Each design feature is highly functional.

The SLR Roadster’s soft top is woven from two differently coloured yarns and changes colour depending on the light. A special weave of the yarns lends the textile roof an extreme strength to counteract the so-called “ballooning” effect. This enables it to withstand the stresses at speeds up to the maximum while also making it resistant to all weathers. All in all, the result is a roadster that brings the race track to the road – driver permitting.
