Top Ten Modern Super Cars with the Most Investment Potential

Mercedes-Benz SLR McClaren Stirling Moss

The SLR Stirling Moss is a limited edition (75 vehicles) of the series, which uses a speedster styling that does not include roof or windscreen. The design is inspired by the 300 SLR race car, and was designed by Korean designer Yoon Il-hun. It was to be the last series of the McLaren SLR built under the partnership between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren, until McLaren announced their own final edition of the SLR in late 2010.

    The supercharged V8 engine is rated 650 PS (480 kW; 640 hp). The car's top speed is 350 km/h (220 mph) with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds. The car is approximately 200 kg (440 lb) lighter than the regular model.

    The SLR Stirling Moss began production in June 2009, after SLR Roadster's production ended in May 2009. All 75 cars were produced by December 2009. The SLR Stirling Moss was available only to SLR owners.  Price in 2009 was $1 million U.S.   What can this bring today or in the future at auction?  Obviously the sky is the limit. The SLR McClaren Stirling Moss will be one of the most collectible of all modern cars in the next decades.  Obviously with so few available it may nearly be impossible to ever find one at auction or at private sale.  With this particular model so impossible to find one might invest in the regular edition of the SLR Mclaren which was produced from 2003 until 2010.  It is estimated that there are over 3500 of those models.  And it we has seen some considerable depreciation on the new sticker price of these that sold for around $495,000.  Finding a regular SLR McClaren for half of that sticker price might turn out to also be the best investment one can make in a modern super car.  It's true many don't like the idea that they came standard with an automatic.  However I find this investment more in line with a superb work of art.
