Gift Guide: Mercedes-Benz McLaren Roadster
How's this for a piece of exclusive fabulousness in the Saks Fifth Avenue's 2008 Holiday Catalog? Mercedes-Benz is offering the chance to score a most elusive and unusual gift: a rare Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster. Among the last of this model built for the U.S., features include a hand-built supercharged V-8 engine with 617 horsepower, 0-60 in 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of just over 200 mph. In addition to a retractable roof and signature light brown leather interior, the carbon fiber bodywork is finished in bespoke SLR Sienna Pearl metallic paint.
Bidding on this sexxxy combination of technology, interior detail, and performance starts at $529,500, and will take place for a single afternoon only: Thursday, November 20th from 1-5 pm NYC time at mbusa.com/SLRauction.
Any amount raised above $529,500 will be donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Thanks and Giving Campaign , created in 2004 by Marlo Thomas (right) to support their livesaving work. One of the premiere cancer research centers dedicated to finding cures for children with cancer & other catastrophic diseases, St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where no child is ever denied treatment because of a family's inability to pay.
