Mercedes-Benz Mclaren Slr 722 Edition


The stylish, suave, and faster-than-ever Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR 722 Edition is receiving a lot of attention these days. Unfortunately, MBZ's official Web site has no info on the McLaren SLR 722. The Web site only has information on the 2006 McLaren SLR. The beastly SLR 722 made its world premiere September 2006 at the Paris Motor Show. However, since only 150 of the SLR 722 Editions will be made, it may be somewhat difficult to pick up a new one.

Per McLaren's press release, the five-speed-automatic SLR 722 has over 300 improvements compared to its predecessor. Horsepower is up to 650 from 617, resulting in a zero-to-62 mph (100km/h) rate of 3.6 seconds. Its top speed has increased, as the handmade, 5.5-liter supercharged V-8 exceeds 209 mph.

Additionally, the suspension has been refined with stiffer dampers, and the body has been lowered just a tad. The interior has a sportier new look too.

Mercedes-Benz's Web site list the price of the base model of the 2006 McLaren SLR at just over $452,000. The McLaren SLR 722 Edition is listed at around $525,000. Compared to other cars deemed to be in the same class, such as the Lamborghini Murciélago Coupe and the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish S Coupe, it is more than a second faster than the Aston Martin from zero to 60 mph, and around 2 mph faster than the Lamborghini's top speed. Keep that in mind the next time you are driving 207 mph.

Price-wise, it is no contest, as the SLR 722 is twice as expensive as the Vanquish, and 80 percent more than the Lamborghini.
The MBZ McLaren SLR 722 Edition's name is a tribute to Sir Stirling Moss, who drove an MBZ SLR 300 to the winner's circle at the 1955 Mille Miglia race. The vehicle driven by Moss remains on display today at the Mercedes-Benz Museum at Stuttgart-Untertürkheim.
