Formula Motors from Dubai is selling a flashy Mercedes-Benz SLR ostentatiously customized by Hamann.

The Mercedes-Benz SLR is certainly a very attractive supercar with its stock body but Hamann considered there were some people willing to pay extra for a more striking product. At least two people did because last year a yellow & black car was on sale at Alain Class Motors in Dubai and now another car this time with a white & black combo is available at Formula Motors, also in Dubai, UAE.

Priced at AED 1,100,000 (about 300,000 USD), the 2005 SLR Volcano by Hamann wears an outrageous body kit with triple side exhausts and has been driven for only 4,600 km (2,858 miles). It packs 700 bhp (522 kW) and 830 Nm (612 lb-ft) from an uprated V8 5.4-liter and sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds (matching the SLR 722 Edition) before topping out at 216 mph (348 km/h), making it slightly faster than the SLR 722 Edition which can do 209 mph (337 km/h).
