Mercedes SLR Roadster

The Mercedes SLR roadster can’t really be classed as a gadget, but can certainly be classed as a nice toy to have. Out of reach of most mere mortals, but for some it will be a weekend ‘play thing’. The SLR Roadster is constructed almost entirely from carbon fibre with a semi-automatic top.

The roadster comes with a five-speed automatic transmission that allows it to sprint to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds. The car is alleged to be available in September in England with a price tag of £350,000. No word when or if it will be available in the States.
