Back in 2006 Mercedes launched a special variant of the SLR coupé that was developed togehter with McLaren in Woking. With the SLR 722 variant Mercedes honored Sir Stirling Moss who started at 7:22 in the Mille Miglia in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR back in 1955. Compared with a ‘normal’ SLR the 722 variant is limited to 150 units, more power (650 hp instead op 626 hp), stiffer dampers,a suspension that is 10 millimeters lower, larger ceramic brakes, a specific front splitter and some 722 logos. Lot’s of SLR 722’s don’t see daylight anymore. Luckily this Belgian owner took it to Knokke after he enjoyed some Gumball time. The license plate refers to McLaren Special Operations as the plate was seen earlier on a Mclaren 675 LT MSO and more recently a McLaren Senna.
