Videos: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition

We’re sure it was nice to see some beautiful pictures of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition. But no pictures can do this car justice until you see it in action, so we gathered up some videos for you. The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition was launced early this week in Dubai and has a 5.5 liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 650 horsepower. Okay we’ll stop talking and let you watch the videos.

The new SLR 722 Edition model variant from Mercedes-Benz evokes memories of a particularly special 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.m.). Sorry that had to be said before the movies!
