Legends Never Die ⚡️
•God of Thunder•
The SLR was jointly engineered and manufactured by Mercedes-AMG and Mclaren to commemorate the 300 SLR “Uhlenhaut Coupe” which was made in 1955. The 722 nameplate is derived from the victory won by British racing legend Stirling Moss and his co-driver Denis Jenkinson in the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR with the starting number 722 (indicating a start time of 7:22 a.m.) at the Mille Miglia in 1955. The 722 edition which was released in 2007 features a boost in output, stiffer dampening suspension, more dynamic chassis tuning, improved aerodynamics, and distinctly sporty interior appointments compared to the standard SLR. The SLR’s M155 engine is a variant of the M113, utilizing a 5.4L supercharged V8 to truly bring out the thunder that lies beneath the bonnet. Boasted up to 650 Hp and 820 Nm of torque, the 722 edition does 0-100 in 3.6 seconds, which is two-tenth of a second faster than the standard SLR, and 0-200 in a mind blowing 10.2 seconds. A higher top speed of 337 km/hr is also achieved thanks to a modified front spoiler and rear diffuser, which also improves the overall high speed stability and performance of the SLR 722. Signature side exhausts revive the ultra rare 300 SLR and prove what a timeless masterpiece it is. Only 2 examples of the 300 SLR were built, and the SLR 722 edition is also very limited to 150 units.
