Back in 2005 there was a thread on which supercar is the worst and a lot of people voted the Mercedes SLR. If I remembered correctly, among all the well-known 200mph exotic cars built in the last 25 years, the SLR is the only one that received 4 stars from EVO, while all the other ones received 5 stars. If I'm not mistaken, SLR is also the only 200mph production car made in the past 25 years that did not appear on EVO's top 100 driver's car list. For the same price, the Carrera GT is quicker than the SLR. There are cars that are cheaper yet offers performance comparable to the SLR, like 599GTB, ZR-1, Gallardo Balboni and Murcielago LP640/LP670. In my opinion, SLR can be considered one of a kind among exotic cars (599GTB is a high performance car, but not an exotic in my opinion). SLR is front-engine instead of mid-engine. Unlike most of its mid-engine rivals, it offers decent luggage space. It is also one of the most drivable supercars, with performance that are easier to access than most other cars in its category. It was (and most likely still is) the fastest automatic car in the world. Considering the car good or bad is all up to personal taste and preference. What do you guys think?
