The F1 is the Penultimate Sportscar, bar none. The SLR is for playboys and poseurs, not drivers. Note the central driving position on the F1, its Engineering prowess, and at the time Gordon Murray, the fabled car designer and Engineer for McLaren Formula 1 cars, set out to make the best sports car that the days technology could muster. Also, the shape and proportions of the F1 must be seen in person to truly appreciate. I've seen both, and if you want a shallow woman with more silicone than grey matter or heart, the SLR is the car for you...I'm with you Salarzae!
