The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (199 series) is a super sports car developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. It was manufactured between 2003 and 2009 by McLaren in Portsmouth (body shell) and Woking (assembly) in England.
Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut coupé hailing from the 1950s, the car has been fitted with butterfly doors and characteristic air vents on the sides and on the bonnet. Manufacturing was limited to 3,500 cars, of which 2,157 were distributed. In 2010, there were 46 new registrations in Germany.
The special edition model was available from 11 July 2006 onwards, the engine is 478 kW (650 HP) and needs 0.2 seconds less than the regular SLR for the standard sprint. Its maximum speed is three km/h faster and sits at 337 km/h. Except for the engine, the front spoiler, braking system (from the Italian manufacturer Brembo with carbon brake discs), chassis (including lower suspension setting), 19-inch rims and the rear diffuser were modified.
The SLR 722 Edition was made to commemorate the victory of British racing legend Stirling Moss and his co-driver Dennis Jenkinson in Italian endurance race Mille Miglia. The starting number of the 300 SLR was 722 after the starting time of 07:22 am. In 1955, they drove the 1,000-mile route in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR with a time of 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds.
A roadster version of the 722 series (Roadster 722 S) was later launched. The 722 edition and the Roadster 722 S each resulted in 150 cars.
In total, about 300 car parts have been changed. This resulted in an increased output of 18 kW (25 HP) and 40 Nm compared to the normal SLR. The weight was also reduced by 44 kg thanks to the use of lighter fuel tanks,
insulation materials, aluminium damper housing and components made from carbon in the footwell as well as on the rear wheel arch.
The vehicle, a limited edition made up of 150 cars, has undergone a major overhaul of the chassis. It is fitted with 19-inch aluminium alloy wheels, making the vehicle 18 kg lighter. The 722 edition also sits 10 mm closer to the road. This means that the chassis is firmer, facilitating higher cornering speeds. The rolling motion of the car was also reduced by 20 percent thanks to the lower suspension setting.
