Mercedes McLaren SLR Claims London Speed Record

A recent gathering of supercars in London, saw the SLR come out on top.

The group of cars invited along to London City Airport, to see if they could grab a spot in the record books, included a Porsche 911 Turbo, BMW M6, Shelby Daytona Cobra, Corvette Z06 and Ford’s GT.

The SLR took the crown for ‘Fastest legally driven car in London’, just edging out the Ford GT, by a miniscule 1.4 mph.

The top five cars were –

Mercedes McLaren SLR – 175.7 mph
Ford GT – 174.3 mph
Corvette Z06 – 167.0 mph
Porsche Turbo – 162.6 mph
BMW M6 – 162.5 mph

Impressive speed to reach, on only a one mile runway. Though I’m pretty sure this guy would have spoiled the party, if he’d been invited…
