Here’s Your First Look At The 2022 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren HDK
12 units will be built and all of them were spoken forby Alina Moore, on
A while back there was a rumor that McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is going to build a "successor" for the SLR McLaren. Now, those rumors are one step closer to becoming reality as supercar collector Manny Khoshbin just posted on his Instagram account pictures of a scale model of what appears to be a new SLR McLaren.
His post says: "Ooh what is this for??? I could not possibly say… look out 2022." Which means of course that the new SLR McLaren will make its world debut sometime next year.
For the moment we have very limited information on the new SLR McLaren, but rumors suggest it will be called HDK - High Downforce Kit. Previous rumors suggested Mercedes will build a total of 12 units, but Khoshbin’s post suggest his car will be a "one-off." So, it is very possible that all those 12 units will be tailored to each customer’s personal taste.
The scale model posted by Khoshbin reveals an aggressive look, with a vented hood, a massive rear wing, a large rear diffuser, bulkier side skirts, and a single-exit exhaust pipe on each side. In fact it looks quite a lot with the SLR 722 GT - the car on which rumors suggest it will be based on. If so, expect the SLR HDK to deliver more than 617 horsepower - the power of the SLR 722 GT.
One thing is for sure, all 12 units were spoken for, so there is no hope you could get one.
