Video: Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 GT takes to the track

About a year ago, RML teamed up with Mercedes-Benz to offer the McLaren SLR 722 GT, a SLR 722 made only for the track with an upgraded suspension, braking system, interior and exhaust system. Power came from a supercharged AMG 5.5L V8 that produces 680-hp giving the SLR 722 GT the ability to go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.3 seconds with a top speed of 195 mph.

Those interested in one had to cash out $1.2 million in the U.S. and could only purchase the SLR 722 GT from RENNtech. Of course, we thought that would be pretty steep for anyone to cash out on a track-only car – we were wrong.

As RENNtech promised, it has been organizing several on-track events throughout the US, in 2008. And a recent event was caught on video showing eight SLR McLaren 722 GTs in action with Brazilian race car driver Bruno Senna Lalli leading the pack.

You can check out the video after the jump.
