  • Featuring numerous upgrades, the 722 Edition was released by McLaren in 2006
  • Carbon-ceramic discs, lighter 19' wheels, larger front splitter and a revised rear diffuser
  • Fitted with a 650bhp version of the supercharged 5.4-litre V8. 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds
  • One of 150, this left-hand drive 722 Coupe is displaying just delivery mileage
  • Strikingly finished in Crystal Fayalite Green with a Green and Cream interior

Manufactured between 2003 and 2010, their new supercar allowed Mercedes-Benz and its then Formula 1 partner, McLaren, to showcase their collective experience in the development, construction and production of high-performance sports cars and, just like its legendary 300 SLR predecessor of 1955, it incorporated technological developments that were ahead of their time. It was supremely engineered and built to incredible standards at McLaren's facilities in Woking boasting a very high level of fit and finish. Yet the term 'supercar' does not do full justice to the SLR, which, its peerless performance notwithstanding, is a luxurious and finely engineered Gran Turismo in the best traditions of Mercedes-Benz.

The heart of any car is its engine, and that of the SLR McLaren is truly outstanding. Produced at Mercedes-Benz's AMG performance division, it's a 5.5-litre, 24-valve, supercharged V8 producing 617bhp, making it one of the most powerful engines ever found in a series-produced road-going sports car. Impressive though this peak horsepower figure is, it's the torque produced by this state-of-the-art 'blown' motor that is its most remarkable feature. The torque curve is almost flat with 440lb/ft already by 1,500 rpm and well over 500lb/ft between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm.

Needless to say, the SLR McLaren delivers performance figures that are still among the best in its class. Taking just 3.8 seconds to sprint from 0-100km/h (62mph), it passes the 200km/h (125mph) mark after 10.6 seconds, and from a standing start takes just 28.8 seconds to reach 300km/h (186mph) going on to a top speed of 334km/h (207 mph).

In a nod to Stirling Moss’ 300 SLR, which wore #722 and won the 1955 Mille Miglia in record time, McLaren released the 722 Edition in 2006. Horsepower was raised to 650, and as a result, the car’s 0–60mph time was further improved to 3.6 seconds. Larger carbon-ceramic disc brakes were fitted with lighter 19-inch wheels and the nose sported an all-new diffuser and air splitter to improve downforce, as well as a modified front spoiler.

This, left-hand drive, coupe is showing delivery mileage only and is strikingly finished in Crystal Fayalite Green with a fabulous Green and Cream interior. This really is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a very special car that totally delivers in terms of performance, looks and value.
