About the Auction

One of the first of these fabulous cars built is to be sold at a one-item auction with the proceeds going directly to the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation supporting that fine institution’s Cancer Center. The brand new SLR McLaren has been most generously gifted to the Medical Center by Prestige Mercedes-Benz of Paramus, New Jersey. Those aware of the extremely limited edition SLR McLaren have come to understand that there is a lengthy waiting list to acquire one of these stunning machines. The auction offers the unique opportunity to acquire one immediately. Furthermore, it should be noted that any amount (exclusive of the 10% buyer’s premium) bid over the list price of the vehicle is deemed a charitable contribution to the Medical Center Foundation.
