• Video: Stirling Moss driving the SLR 722


There are not too many racing legends who get a special edition car named after them, especially living ones. Mercedes must really like Sir Stirling Moss because no only is the SLR Stirling Moss named after him, but also the the SLR 722 edition from 2006.

While it’s only a matter of time before Mercedes gets Moss behind the wheel of the car that bears his name, we’ll have to settle for some footage of Moss driving the 722 S for now. Watch as the greatest driver to never win the World Championship talks about today’s racing and drives the car that celebrates his #722 that won the 1955 Mille Miglia race.

Second video with Moss with Bernhard Langer at Augusta National Golf Club after the jump.
