For those who are an enthusiast of the SLR models and what the term SLR has come to mean, something as simple as a trademark renewal will provide you with hope that the Mercedes-Benz SLR will be returning to the future Mercedes-Benz line-up. While no one can say for sure, we do know that the parent company, Daimler, is not ready to give up the trademark on the SLR name.

On March 1, Daimler officially filed a renewal through a New York-based law firm. While the trademark was expiring next year, in the year 2020, there could be multiple reasons why the Daimler company decided to renew. They could just want to protect the SLR namesake and make sure that it's theirs for another set of years or they could want to renew it because they're getting to release another Mercedes-Benz SLR vehicle in the next few years. We don't know, although we're hoping for the latter to be the reason why.

When was the last Mercedes-Benz SLR? 2010 when it was attached to the impressive Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. This supercar was outstanding and was designed via a partnership with its Formula 1 companion, McLaren. It has a 5.7-liter supercharged V8 engine that produced 617-horsepower and was ready to show off wherever it went. Although it was only in production for seven year, we miss having it around and would love for it to be back. That's why we're hoping that this trademark renewal is for a purpose, not just to hold onto the SLR name.
