Kanye West’s new £1million Pound Mercedes SLR

The Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss is limited to only 75 units in the whole world, so it is very rare to see the Mercedes SLR outside of an air conditioned garage and away from a secure building. The fact is that is being driven by an American rapper Kanye West, one of the biggest rappers in the game and he now has another multi million pound Mercedes to show his success. The rapper was showing the Stirling Moss cruising slowly past in the £1million pound luxury vehicle. Kanye drove the car himself and didn’t even have a chauffeur to drive him to the Cannes show.

Kanye was invited to the Cannes Film Festival and was more than happy to show up when he strolled around in the million pound Mercedes. Whether the car is his or maybe Mercedes have borrowed him the vehicle to help with promotion of the company. Either way the star fitted perfectly into the leather trimmed interior. However Mercedes of recent times have been taking a slight de-tour in their marketing techniques, they are not really known to promote vehicles or the brand as Mercedes speaks for itself. In recent times they have first released a Mercedes mountain bike and now rapper Kanye West driving a super rare Mercedes.

The Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss is powered by a 5.5 supercharged V8 engine and has an enormous 650bhp. The Mercedes doesn’t even have a windshield but the roadster can still hit a massive 217mph. The Mercedes can reach 0-60mph in less than 3.5 seconds, so in theory this type of speed is massive as the car has no windscreen or roof. The luxury motor could even give you whiplash with the amount of force pinning you back in the chair.

Kanye West certainly attended the 64th Annual Cannes Film in style that is for sure; the Mercedes series started in 2004 and ended in 2009. There were only 75 of them made and Kanye West appears to have one of them.
