Rear brake replacement on Mercedes SLR McLaren valued at the cost of the new E-Class 1




On the YouTube channel “VINwiki” appeared a video in which the owner of the Mercedes SLR McLaren complained about the expensive maintenance of the supercar. The man said that technical problems followed him from the very first day of ownership.

Some time ago the rear brakes of a two-door started making unpleasant noise. By the way, this model uses carbon-ceramic brakes, and it costs a fortune to replace them.

In this particular case, replacing the brakes would cost $58,000. By the way, for this money, you can take a new Mercedes E-class.

Fortunately, the owner found the reason for the unpleasant noise, and the issue was solved without resorting to such an expensive operation. Thus, this case is a vivid illustration of how expensive the possession of a supercar can be.

Curiously, the famous collector Manny Hoschbin has nine copies of the Mercedes SLR McLaren in his garage. It is hard to imagine how much it would cost him to repair if the brakes of several cars fail.
