With the two 722 variants and the SLR Stirling Moss, the nominal power was increased by 24 hp and the maximum torque by 40 Nm.
The SLR engine has proven to be very reliable and robust over the years.Currently, not a single engine damage is known to the super sports car. The regular maintenance of our very frugal unit includes the annual engine oil change and the replacement of the spark plugs as part of the regular service cycle.
Warming up the engine oil when starting the SLR should also be routine. Give the engine time to warm up! When the two drops disappear from the display, the motor and fluids are at operating temperature.
If you are still out with the SLR in autumn, you should look under the bumper. Leaves can accumulate in the intake tract to the main cooler and have the consequence that the performance of the cooler is impaired in exceptional cases.
