IAA 2007: Day 1

After a very long first day at the IAA 2007 we can present you a couple of our highlights and must see supercars if you plan to visit the Frankfurt Motorshow in the next two weeks.

Starting with the first manufacturer we visited this morning: Mercedes. The Mercedes exhibition area is huge and it has a few tricks up it’s sleeves, out there are a couple hidden treasures you don’t want to miss!

The first one is the new McLaren-Mercedes SLR Roadster, this convertible version of the McLaren SLR has a topspeed of 322 km/h produced by the same 626 bhp engine used in the non-topless SLR.

Not far from the SLR Roadster we found the Mercedes-Benz Mercedes CLK 63 AMG Black Series CLK 63 AMG Black Series. This AMG model based on the F1 Safety Car was presented on the New York International Auto Show in April of this year. The AMG powered V8 produces 507 bhp, enough for a 13,8 second sprint from zero to 200 km/h. The topspeed is limited to 300 km/h.

Another instant classic not to be missed is the new Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Ferrari 430 Scuderia. A faster, lighter and racier version of the Ferrari F430.
