Okay, so we get to see a lot of pretty cool cars in the summer time living out in the Hamptons. I’ve been in Rolls Royce’s, I’ve driven Ferrari’s, I’ve driven Porsche’s, and I once touched a Bugatti.
But the other day, I saw for the first time, a car that I’ve never seen before, a Mercedes Benz McLaren. It was like the car Gods came down from the sky, and touched me. The car was pulling out onto 27 off of Deerfield Road in Wainscott. It was beautiful. It roared out into the street just as I drove by it. This car is on a batmobile level. It’s just so freaking awesome. The base price of this car is $450,000. The one that I saw, I believe, is from 2009.
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren was developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive and rivals the Aston Martin DBS V12 and Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.
It’s an insane car.
So yea, if you are reading this Mr. McLaren owner, swing by the Dan’s Papers offices in Southampton, I’d like to shake your hand…and drive your car.
