The first images of the 722 GT-R have been spotted at a dealer in Germany. It will be limited to only 21 units each priced at 750.000 euro.

In releasing the GTR, Mercedes have become romantic about their Mille Miglia-winning 300SLR which Stiring Moss piloted to victory in 1955. This was followed by a Uhlenhaut Coupe that never made it into production. The 2008 GTR now pays tribute to this little-forgotten legacy and opens a new chapter in Mercedes motor sports.

It is powered by a V8 engine producing 650 hp. The car weights only 2866 lbs and reaches a top speed of 209.4 mph. The 0 to 60 mph sprint is made just in 3.0 seconds.

Inside, the car is appropriately stripped out with only the essential functions being controlled from a carbon fiber binnacle. New carbon fiber door panels and full roll cage complete the transformation.

I really dig the aero package and wheels, and the weight reduction is significant
