While AMG prepare Mercedes' next generation of supercar, the SLC, McLaren have been busying themselves with one last version of the SLR before they quietly part company with Mercedes-Benz. The topless SLR Speedster is to be the SLR's swansong, for once all 75 cars are built the baton will be passed onto the AMG-developed SLC and its immensely powerful supercharged engine.

The SLR Speedster is expected to weigh 200kg less than the SLR coupe - largely thanks to the ditching of the hard-top, gullwing doors and glass - while performance is expected include a 350kph top speed. That's mighty fast for a machine with no windshield.
