McLaren and Mercedes are two of the most successful names in Motorsport, the collaboration between the two teams gathered pace in 1995 as Mercedes became McLaren's F1 Engine supplier. The collaboration that followed in Formula One, would bear many great successes over almost two decades. Mercedes-Benz went on to acquire 40 percent of the McLaren Group, and at this time, the two companies produced their first road car together. Competition was fierce in 2003 with Ferrari launching the Enzo and Porsche the mid Engineered Carrera GT. However the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, with its Awe-Inspiring supercharged 5.5 litre Engine, put the emphasis back in the driving seat. Mclaren's input is obvious in the car's handling characteristics and most notably the braking, when launched the SLR's brakes were by far the most advanced available on any road car, internally ventilated carbon-fibre ceramic discs with 6-piston aluminium fixed-callipers.
