The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition: A Look at the Ultimate Grand Tourer

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition is a high-performance car that was produced between 2006 and 2009. It sports a potent V-8 engine with supercharging that generates 641 horsepower and has a 3.6 second 0-60 mph time.

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR that Stirling Moss used to win the 1955 Mille Miglia event inspired the name of the vehicle.  Additionally, it sports carbon trim, black wheels, a firmer and lower suspension, and more aero.

The 5.4-liter SLR AMG V8 supercharged engine of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition is rated at 650 PS (478 kW; 641 horsepower) and 605 lb/ft (820 Nm) of torque. Even more horsepower is provided by the engine, which is exclusive to the SLR 722 versions.

The vehicle's power is increased to 478 kW/650 hp via a reworked intercooler and new electronic engine management.

The SLR 722 Edition raises the bar for interior design with its progressive elegance and extensive material refinement. For instance, the seats are covered in Alcantara and black semi-aniline leather. The embossed "722" on the head restraints and the deliberately visible seams in 300 SL red make for a startling contrast.

The 300 SLR race car served as inspiration for Yoon Il-hun, a Korean designer, when creating the vehicle. Sarkis Benliyan, a Dutch designer, created the interior.

Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive collaborated to build the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren grand tourer. It was constructed in Woking, England at the McLaren Technology Center, and in Portsmouth, England.

The Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut Coupé served as the model for the vehicle, which was based on the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. The SLS AMG replaced the SLR in 2010.
