Have not heard anything about this, saw it yesterday? I thought the production had ended?

Production has ended. A couple of years ago for the coupe.

Probably an old car with upgrades for a special customer?

Mercedes McLaren Edition SLR supercar revealed | evo

McLaren has shown off its new special edition kit for the now discontinued Mercedes SLR McLaren. The tuning update made its first appearance at this year’s Essen Motor Show.

The limited edition kit, called the McLaren Edition SLR, is a retrofit option for existing standard SLRs. It’ll provide them with a new aerodynamic body kit and modified steering and suspension set-ups, as well as a few interior enhancements.

The front bumper gains a new mesh grille and massive air intakes, while the fins on the side are simplified, losing the horizontal strips running across them.

Performance stays the same, as the 5.5-litre V8 remains untouched. The engine produces an impressive 617bhp (at 6500rpm), 575lb ft of torque (at 3250rpm) resulting in a top speed of 208mph in coupe form.

McLaren has limited the production to 25 kits and no price has yet been revealed. It can be construed as the sixth iteration of the supercar, following on from the coupe and roadster in standard and 722 Edition form, and the striking Stirling Moss special. The SLR ceased production in 2009 when McLaren and Mercedes went their separate ways with supercar production.

This thing is better than an SLS any day. It's got that hypercar status. Too bad it's got a lousy interior.
Too bad they got lazy and not wanted to tune that engine. It could have 700 HP all day long. Shame on them for not having the balls.

I imagine that Mercedes Benz would of told McLaren not to tune the engine in an attempt to "protect" the SLS.
