Paris Hilton probably has her checkbook out alreadyThere's a lot of buzz around the web about the new Mercedes McLaren SLR Speedster. While some may not consider the model photochop-worthy (it's just another version of the lame duck SLR), fans of the brands have shown a real interest in the open-cockpit vehicle. I rendered this chop after analyzing the photos of the camouflaged test vehicles. The image shows dual front lights (same as the rest of the SLR family); the other lamps present on the test cars are there only to confuse onlookers. The side line with strong shoulders and arched rear fenders are completely new to this car. It will definitely feature two wind deflectors to add some aerodynamic comfort. Other details– like the shape of the doors and the front spoiler– can also be divined through the test car camouflage. We'll have to wait and see if it'll become a collectible item for those who remember the days of Stirling Moss, or just so 'mo bling-bling for those who listen to themselves on the hip-hop station.
