Video: First sightings of the Mercedes SLR 722 S

Two examples of the ultra exotic roadster version of the already limited Stirling Moss inspired SLR have just been spotted in Europe. The 722 stepped up the SLR’s game by bringing carbon ceramic brakes and a new set of rollers and a reworked suspension to the table; the Mercedes SLR 722 S adds a convertible top to the package.

Just like the hard top, the 722 S is powered by a supercharged 5.5 Liter AMG V8 making 650 HP, this allows the drop top super car to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in only 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 208 MPH. Mercedes and McLaren will only build 150 examples of the 722 S, so you should feel luck to have already seen 1/75th of the production run. It is interesting to note that although the vehicles were spotted in Europe, they both had Arabic tags, just goes to show where the future super car capitol of the world will be located.
