The total run of 2000 units will end with the final cars being the no-compromise, hirsute-motoring Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss. Appropriate in our opinion.We've had quite a relationship with the SLR. We were in awe when it was first revealed, fell in love with the drop top version, our inner high-dollar hoon practically wet himself when the McLaren SLR 722 first debuted and one of the most enduring memes here at Jalopnik came about when one was unceremoniously crashed — SLR guy. Despite being purchased largely by annoying celebutards and oil sheiks bent on chroming their every inch, we cannot deny the staggering engineering and phallic proportions of this truly great grand tourer. Good night SLR, and go swiftly into the darkness.
