The 700 HP Mansory Renovatio Can Save The SLR From Certain Celebrity DeathMark Arnold4/08/08 10:20amFiled to: mclaren slrMansory RenovatiomansoryMercedesMercedes-BenzSlr35EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe McLaren SLR always leaves us scratching our heads. The thundering V8 is brilliantly finessed by McLaren so as to attract only the highest-end of horsepower-happy hoon. However, it's just too pretty. The engine's wrapped up in a package that screams for the depths of the celebrity elite — the oil barons, soccer stars, "gangsta" moguls and Gumballers of the world — to buy it and have their way with it. And by that we mean everything from showing off your "no-no spot," having difficulty entering and exiting, DUIs and of course, smacking into the rear (or front) bumper of a late-model Honda Civic. But for the privileged lowest of the low, the tuning shop of Mansory has put together an attempt to "Save The SLR" by making a version of the McLaren-mobile sure to be unwanted by even the most privileged of douches-with-privilege. It's called the Renovatio.
