Mercedes SLR McLaren 722

Mercedes SLR McLaren 722

It was in the year 2006 that Mercedes-Benz introduced a new model - the SLR McLaren 722. Very often, the numbers in the name of a sports car model indicate the power capacity of the car. In the case of the SLR McLaren 722 however, the 722 does not stand for the bhp. It stands for the start-time, 07:22 am, of Stirling Moss and his co-driver Denis Jenkinson who won a sterling victory at Mille Miglia (1955) in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. However, the misunderstanding might have actually helped the marketing of the car! The term SLR stands for "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" which translates into "sport, light, racing". The Roadster variants of the same car have been rolled out while this model has been discontinued. The price of the car varies depending on the maintenance and accessories but hovers around the £350,000 mark.

The name "SLR" is embodied by the interiors of the car. The neat and comfortable leather upholstery welcome you into the cockpit. The steering wheel has been shaped and muscled with a flat base. In terms of a luxury ride, there are all the necessary accessories - a top-notch stereo system located in the central console along with the climate-control system. The dash is impeccably neat and stylish, punctuated by air vents which resemble aircraft engines. The small gear stick has a few more control-buttons at the back. Thus, everything is within the reach of the driver. Seat belts and safety airbags arrive as standard equipment in all cars. The illuminated dials and gauges rest in a small compartment-like hooded area behind the wheel.

The magnificent body of this brand of SLR has been streamlined for maximum aerodynamics and elegant styling. In looks, it will certainly dazzle any onlooker. The bonnet is really long and ends in an apparently pointed nose. A stylish, two-layered grille sits on either side of the central Mercedes-Benz logo. There is a large grille below the number-plate. The dual headlamps on either sides are large and deep. The sides have stylish and wind-breaking slits. The rear is higher than the front making the whole car slope forward. The rear lamps are large and there is a long, yet narrow back-grille. The all-alloy wheels are large with multi-spoked rims and they add a new dimension to the sporty looks of the car.
