Mercedes-Benz SLR722 details:
For Mercedes-Benz, SLR 722 Edition was an obvious name for the new model variant as it evokes memories of the unforgettable victory achieved in 1955 by the British motor-racing legend Stirling Moss and his co-pilot Dennis Jenkinson at Mille Miglia - the classic Italian endurance race - behind the wheel of a Mercedes Benz 300 SLR with start number 722 (denoting the car's start time of 7. 22 a. Boasting an cool output of 478 Kw/650 hp, the SLR Mclaren 722 Edition super sports vehicle not only out-performs its historic forefather, it even outstrips the scintillating peak performance of the current SLR model - a technical masterstroke on the part of the developers at Mercedes-Benz and Mclaren. The new limited-edition series - only 150 models are being manufactured, for the most part hand-crafted, at Mclaren in Woking - is the brand's response to calls from highly discerning SLR buyers for even more sportiness combined with the same high level of everyday practicality.
At the heart of the Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 Edition is a 5. 5-litre V8 supercharged powerplant assembled by hand at the Mercedes-amg motor workshops in Affalterbach, Germany, based on the One man, one motor principle. Among the high-performance powerplant's major strengths are its extremely spontaneous response to accelerator pedal movements, dynamic torque build-up across the entire motor speed range and an unmistakable V8 audio.
Further modifications were made to influence the interplay of the motor with the gearshift. For every of the individually selectable transmission modes - M (manual) and S (sport) on the one hand and C (comfort) on the other - there is now a various accelerator pedal characteristic curve which has been optimised in line with the very various operating conditions that apply in every case.
