So this forum has forever banished the SLR to "Disgustingly Uncool" despite later votes redeeming it. What about the roadster though? Is lopping the top off, and adding a big helping of style enough to save this supercar? The reviews have said that while the SLR coupe was underwhelming, the roadster is more in character for a car of this sort. What do you have to say?







I give it a "Frozen." Open top motoring doesn't get much cooler than this.

I've heard the justification for the first one being MJU, but I still don't buy it. The roadster is actually uncool, though.

Second verse, same as the first.

For the record, it's still a McLaren SLR so the same cool wall rule still applies o:

Being a convertible I'm sure it's worse of a performer than the coupe. I don't think I could ever live with myself in a convertible Mercedes and this is the epitome. Still MJU.

The SLR tried to be a sportscar and failed completely in it so it fully deserved its MJU rating. This one though - well you could see it as a not too bad looking convertible with enough power under the bonnet. So I rate it as cool.

Yeah but it'd be like your mom's hairdresser pussy.

One saving grace of the SLR is that it was "the easiest super car to drive" right? I mean sure a Zonda or a Carrera GT is faster around a track but 10x as unforgiving. That's got to be worth something, right? .... right?
