While its true Mercedes’ partnership with McLaren in regards to producing the SLR has ended, that hasn’t stopped FAB DESIGN from taking aim at tuning the model. FAB has finally released details of a model that made its debut in Geneva – one that they’re calling the SLR “Desire.”
From a design standpoint, it’s clear FAB’s SLR is anything but an ordinary SLR McLaren. A vastly different front and rear apron are present, as are additional widened body panels in both the front and back. New side skirts have also been added, while a rear spoiler completes the exterior enhancements.
As for power, FAB DESIGN boosted total output to 740 horsepower with a maximum torque of 1080 Nm, enough to propel the model from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds before reaching its top speed of an electronically limited 192 mph.
Unfortunately, if you’re interested in procuring a FAB DESIGN SLR Desire, you’re out of luck (for now, at least). Production has been limited to 15 units, all of which are already sold out. I have a feeling, however, that if you’re patient, you’ll see at least one hitting the second-hand market in the not-too-distant future.
