Kanye West drives the SLR Stirling Moss in Cannes

Stirling Moss Front

The Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss is limited to only 75 units, so to see one actually outside of an air conditioned and secured garage is a spectacular treat for the eye.

Then the fact that it is being driven by American rapper, singer, and record producer, Kanye West gets thrown in and we’re not sure to sit and ogle or pay for the experience.

Kanye West in Cannes

Kanye was living the high life at the Cannes Film Festival when he got a chance to stroll around in the $1.06 million vehicle. Whether the car is his or he just borrowed it for the day, the star sure seemed to fit right into the leather-trimmed interior.

The Mercedes SLS Stirling Moss is powered by a 5.5-liter supercharged V8 from the 722 SLR, which makes 650 hp. Without a windshield, this roadster can still hit a rip-your-face-off top speed of 217 mph. The 0-60 mph sprint can be made in less than 3.5 seconds. With this type of speed and no windscreen or roof, Kanye may need a little more than those dark sunglasses to shield him from the whiplash he’s sure to get when he gets the SLR out on the open road.
