A Gentleman’s Supercar

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren for sale. This is your chance to get your hands on a 3400 mile 2007 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722. The car is an insanely rare collaboration effort between the two major auto manufacturers, and as a result, you can expect this car to sell well over the half-million mark.

This car in specific bolsters the 722 badging; a special edition that calls back to Sterling Moss and Denis Jenkinson’s Mille Miglia winning 300SLR that wore that number over the finish line. The specific paint code of this car (Crystal Antimony Grey Metallic [701]) is a special paint that has only been used on the 722 editions.

Mercedes Benz SLR background

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (C199 / R199 / Z199) is a grand tourer jointly developed by German automotive manufacturer Mercedes-Benz and British automobile manufacturer McLaren Automotive and sold from 2003 to 2010. When the car was developed, Mercedes-Benz owned 40 percent of the McLaren Group and the car was produced in conjunction between the two companies. SLR is an abbreviation for “Sport Leicht Rennsport” (Sport Light Racing), a homage to the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR which served as the car’s inspiration. The car was offered in coupé, roadster and speedster body styles with the latter being a limited edition model.
