Spotted Mercedes McLaren SLR

Driving eastbound at the time towards younge st. to go pick up my new pirelli P400 and the 407 a silver gorgeous SLR passed on the other side of the highway. $460,000USD car!!! Wish he was driving on same side so I could snap some pictures. Anyways just wondering if anyone else has seen it or has seen one in person yet in the GTA???

I spotted it today as well! I saw it heading Westbound on the 407 near Weston Road at around 3:15pm.

It looked amazing! He was gunning it!

That's Alfredo De Gasperis's SLR. He ordered THREE of them. One for himself, and 2 for his brothers...
He said last year something like 5 or 6 will only be available in Canada (him taking 3)...i don't know how true that is now, over a year later though it may have changed..

i highly doubt it. maybe he meant 2005 model year car?

becasue as far as i know, McLaren isn't producing the car on a limited run basis like Enzo or the F1. they are making as many SLRs as they can for several years (i can't recall the exact duration, but it's more than 5 years). but becasue of the natrual of its carbon fiber body construction, i doubt the rate of production of the car is fast anyway.

as a matter of fact McLaren just opened their brand new "Paragon" facility for the production of SLR and some other upcoming McMerc supercars alongside their F1 R&D team

He might have meant only 5 have been ordered for Canada then, i don't really know, all I know is that it's his car. I was having lunch on Friday w/ one of his younger brothers who said they get the first of the 3 on Monday (yesterday).
