    Manufactured between 2003 and 2010, their new supercar allowed Mercedes-Benz and its then Formula 1 partner, McLaren, to showcase their collective experience in the development, construction, and production of high-performance sports cars and, just like its legendary 300 SLR predecessor of 1955, it incorporated technological developments that were ahead of their time. Yet the term 'supercar' does not do full justice to the SLR, which, its peerless performance notwithstanding, is a luxurious and finely engineered Gran Turismo in the best traditions of Mercedes-Benz.

    The heart of any car is its engine, and that of the SLR McLaren is truly outstanding. Produced at Mercedes-Benz's AMG performance division, it is a 5.5-litre, 24-valve, supercharged V8 producing 617bhp, making it one of the most powerful engines ever found in a series-produced road-going sports car. Impressive though this peak horsepower figure is, it is the torque produced by this state-of-the-art 'blown' motor that is its most remarkable feature. The torque curve is almost flat: there is already 440lb/ft by 1,500 rpm and well over 500lb/ft between 3,000 and 5,000 revs.

    Needless to say, the SLR McLaren delivers performance figures that are still among the best in its class. Taking just 3.8 seconds to sprint from 0-100km/h (62mph), it passes the 200km/h (125mph) mark after 10.6 seconds, and from a standing start takes just 28.8 seconds to reach 300km/h (186mph). The two-seater has a top speed of 334km/h (207 mph).

    A 2007 model first registered in November 2006 to Daimler Chrysler AG in Stuttgart, the car offered here is an example of the '722 Edition'. The '722' refers to the victory in the 1955 Mille Miglia of Stirling Moss and his co-driver Denis Jenkinson, whose Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR had the starting number '722' (indicating a start time of 7:22 a.m.). Delivered to the current owner in November 2007, by which time it had recorded circa 8,000 kilometres, the car is finished in stunning Crystal Antimon Grey Metallic with semi-aniline black leather interior. Standard equipment includes an Audio 30 APS sound system; garage door opener; passenger compartment protection; and larger (19") front brake discs, while a CD changer; mobile phone pre-installation; and 'XL' size front seats are among the factory options fitted. The car is offered with copies of previous German registration papers, copy certificate of conformity and a copy of the supplying Mercedes-Benz dealer's invoice from November 2007. The car recently received new batteries and, although the engine turns over, it did not start and will require attention. If the car is to remain in the UK it is subject to import VAT of 20% and will require registering.
