SOLD! McLaren SLR Roadster with just 943 Original Miles – Going to a New Home Near St. Louis, MO


The 2008 McLaren SLR that’s been sitting on our show room floor for most of the year was picked up by its new owner this morning, a gentleman who lives near St. Louis, MO. He had initially seen the car when I advertised is on eBay, after the eBay auction ended without meeting the $288,000 reserve price, he gave me a call and we were able to put a deal together on the phone.

We discussed the car, its condition, ownership and service history and a wire transfer for the purchase price arrived the next day. We both figured we’d set up an enclosed transport to ship the car to his home, but after a day or so trying to find a transporter, the buyer just gave me a call and said that he will fly in, pick up the car and drive it back home… about 600 miles.

A cozy cockpit for the 600 mile trip back home.

The buyer was a very nice guy and a real car guy. He raced with the SCCA some years ago in a number of national level classes, GT2 in a Nissan Z and later, in the big GT1 class in a Corvette. I’m so glad to see this car go to a good home, to a real ‘car guy’. Thanks again Steve, it was great to meet you, I hope you enjoy the McLaren SLR!

Mercedes Benz to Be First Auto Manufacturer Offering Plaid Exterior Paint Options!


Based on a number of spy shots taken throughout the United States and based upon confirmation from at least one anonymous source within Mercedes-Benz itself, it’s come out that, apparently, Mercedes-Benz will be the first major luxury auto maker to offer intricate PLAID paint schemes as an exterior vehicle option. This 2011 S class, a test vehicle for the new plaid paint scheme option was spied on the streets of San Francisco, CA early this morning.

Dave Knows Cars’ inside source at Mercedes-Benz had this to say when asked about the rumors of this new exterior paint option:

“We’re constantly looking for ways to further incorporate the long corporate history of Mercedes-Benz into our newest products. In the 1950s we offered plaid interior options on 300SL Gullwing coupes, now  we’re just bringing plaid into the 21st century, this time, as an exterior paint option.”

Vintage plaid interior Mercedes-Benz is giving the nod to...

The plaid paint schemes are available as a special order option only at this point, Mercedes-Benz officials say they may begin to incorporate a number of tartan plaids in a number of markets around the world. So far, and not surprisingly, there has been heavy demand from fashion conscious celebrities and movie stars around the globe, but also interest from regular folks in a number of British Commonwealth territories, specifically, Scotland.

Mercedes Benz GL450 with optional plaid exterior paint option spied near Pasadena, CA.

“We’re just trying something new and innovative,” says my inside source at Mercedes-Benz “Our almost mirror like Alubeam Silver Metallic color available on the SLS has proven, over the last few years, that at the highest end of the luxury segment, customers are interested in something unique and are willing to pay for it, with the plaid, we’re just trying something different, we’re trying to offer more than our competition.”

The Alubeam Silver Metallic is a $12,000 paint option on SLS models, these special plaid exterior color schemes are expected to demand a bit of a premium over the Alubeam Silver paint option. “Any tartan plaid is available as a custom exterior color” our inside source confirms, “If legendary race driver Jackie Stewart wants his next S class in Stewart Plaid, we can accommodate his request. What other car manufacturer can do that?

Apparently Paris Hilton has already placed an order for a Burberry Plaid G wagen that is expected to be delivered to her L.A. home in late July. If you’re interested in one of these new plaid color schemes, please feel free to give me a call and we can discuss your specific needs.
