Rare Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren up for sale for a cool $1.95M




A rare Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 S Roadster has been put up for sale for a cool €1.24m ($A1,954,699) in Germany.

Just 150 of the high performance super car were made worldwide and the example up for sale was first registered on 27 April, 2009. There have been two previous owners and the car has done just 25,800 kilometres.

The SLR was jointly developed by Mercedes and McLaren, and was built at the British marque’s Woking plant in England. It was based on the SLR Roadster but gained a raft of enhancements from the 722 Edition that boost output from the 5.5-litre supercharged V8 to 478kW. The result is a century sprint that takes just 3.7 seconds – an amazing feat back in 2009 and no less impressive today. It will hit a top speed of 335km/h.

The 722 variants also received carbon-ceramic disc brakes, lighter 19-inch wheels, larger front splitter and revised rear diffuser.

The example in question is finished in Crystal Antimony Grey with a black semi-aniline leather interior with red contrast stitching and plenty of carbon fibre trim.
