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.
