One of the 75 Mercedes McLaren SLR Stirling Moss limited edition models has been treated to a set of Forgiato wheels by Office-K.
Office-K has done the business on the super-rare Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss by giving it a set of custom Forgiato wheels to ride on. Staggered in size, they have fitted 21-inch alloys at the front and 22-inches at the rear. The spokes are finished in gloss black and a matte finish has been used for the rims. Office-K also added a LED license plate bulb and what they call an LED room bulb for the interior.
Only 75 models of the €750,000 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss were ever made, acting as the finale for the SLR while paying homage to one of the greatest race drivers of all time. When unveiled back in 2009 it was the fastest open-top production car in the world, hitting a top speed of 217mph and clocking 0-62mph in less than 3.5 seconds thanks to a 650hp supercharged 5.5-liter V8. The breathtaking design blends the character of modern SLR models with the SLR of 1955, most notably the high side skirts and black-painted ventilation gills on the hood and sides.
With neither a roof nor windscreen, driver and passenger are afforded a unique driving experience, protected from the elements by two wind deflectors just a couple of centimeters in height. The entire bodywork is made of fine lightweight carbon-fiber, and its pronounced arrow-shaped form is characterized by an elongated hood and compact rear that houses a large diffuser in the bumper for maximum possible downforce. Folding swing-wing doors open forwards and once inside a high-class cabin adorned in carbon-fiber, aluminum and leather sets the style.
