FAB Design SLR McLaren – Desire

SLR “Desire” is a restyling of the Mercedes McLaren SLR by Swiss tuner FAB-Design. It’s not often that a car gets a sub-name like a perfume. But if they do, they had better live up to the expectations that such pretense creates. How about 750 hp and 1,080 Nm of torque, with performance values of 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h (196 mph)? Does that satisfy your desire? Okay, lets also have a look at the car.

The standard McLaren SLR (with 626 hp and 780 Nm of torque) has been restyled, resculpted here by the use of ultra-light carbon fiber materials which FAB-Design claims is as advanced as anything in use in Formula One or the aerospace industry today. There are all-new front and rear fenders, front apron, side skirts, a reshaped bonnet, a rear diffuser and wing. The diffuser helps contain the lift force while the wing brings considerable downforce onto the rear axle to maintain aerodynamic flow and stability. A high-performance exhaust system is also part of the package, with the three pipes coming out of each side just behind the front wheels instead of the standard two.

To keep this reinvented beast rolling along is a new sport suspension and FAB-Design’s own 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin’s performance 265/30 ZR 20 (front) and 325/25 ZR 20 (rear) tires. On the inside is a complete FAB-Design leather finish in black and red with croco-style leather seats.

Desire is a loaded word. There’s something malevolent, devilish about it. Definitely fits the car.
