Description

Among the compelling class supercars that emerged following the turn of the millennium, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition is uniquely intriguing. Its basis was the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, which debuted in 2003; developed jointly by Mercedes-Benz and its then-Formula 1 partner McLaren, the car clearly drew from the former manufacturer’s contemporary design language and world-class engineering, yet it was assembled at the latter’s facility in Woking, England.

This car was a true exotic, with massive power and a 200-plus mph top speed. Unlike ostensible competitors such as the Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Enzo, however, the SLR McLaren featured a front-mid-engine chassis configuration and boasted everyday usability more typical of a traditional grand tourer. Notably, it was also McLaren’s first foray into roadgoing automobiles after the legendary McLaren F1’s production run concluded.

The 722 Edition, launched as a coupe in 2006 and a Roadster in 2009, took the already impressive model to the next level: Its supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 engine, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, was reworked to produce 641 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque. Zero-to-62 mph acceleration took just 3.1 seconds, and top speed was a screaming 208 mph. Further enhancements included a lower, stiffer suspension and lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels. New bucket seats and a steering wheel, both upholstered in semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, were found in the cabin.

The model’s name and subtle “722” badging was highly significant, referencing the starting number of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Stirling Moss and co-driver Denis Jenkinson piloted to victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia. With just 150 SLR McLaren 722 examples produced, the model was destined from the start to be exclusive.

The car we are delighted to offer for sale completed production in November, 2006 and is finished in Crystal Galaxite Metallic paint over a Black Alcantara and leather interior accented by Red seat belts and stitching. Additional factory options include 19-inch Palladium Grey wheels with Silver lip, Sports Package, CD Changer, Mobile Pre-Installation Kit, Sports Steering Wheel, 722 Embossed Headrests, Large Size Seats, and Red Brake Callipers.

This 722 was supplied new to France and remained in Europe for the early part of its life before being sold to the middle east where it was maintained solely by Mercedes-Benz main dealers, including the major engine out service in 2018. It was imported to the United Kingdom in May, 2019 and has been with its current owner since. During the past few years, the car has been maintained by renowned SLR specialists Avantgarde Automotive in Clevedon. They have carried out three services to the car, replaced the AC compressor, and in January, 2024 refreshed the suspension and bushing ensuring the car drives as well as intended.

It sits today showing under 11,000 miles from new and presents superbly with PPF film applied to the front bumper and side sills. The car maintains its original hand books and user manuals as well as a selection of servicing invoices and a quality assurance certificate from when it was built. A stunning example of one of the most exclusive supercars of the modern era, this SLR McLaren 722 Edition is the ultimate mix of supercar and grand tourer and would make a fine addition to any collection.
