Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 GT official


The Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 was already a special edition version of the normal SLR, itself a rare automobile. Going one step further, the German automaker is releasing the SLR 722 GT in conjunction with British motorsports company RML Group. The car is a track day special and meant to compete in a club racing series, so buyers will be private race teams that can afford the initial buy-in cost and maintenance of what is essentially a race car based on the SLR 722. Motor Authority reports that 21 buyers have already been found who are willing to pay the €1 million price tag for each car. Their chunk of change will buy modifications to all the go fast components, including the suspension, brakes, aerodynamics, exhaust and even the interior. The AMG-sourced 5.5L supercharged V8 now develops 671 HP, which is up from 650 in the SLR 722 and 617 in the normal SLR, thanks to more boost pressure. We can clearly make out a new front apron and rear fender flares to accommodate a larger wheel/tire combo, as well as side sills that look sharp to the touch. Out back you’ll find a rear diffuser and who can miss that giant fixed rear wing? It certainly looks the part, and we’re betting the Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 GT acts the part, too.
