Earlier today we brought news of a Wheelsandmore tuning package for the Mercedes SLS AMG, now it’s time for its ancestor to get our attention. Well, actually, it got the attention of the very same tuner, who seems to show the same interest for the old McLaren SLR, both the standard and the SLR 722 S.

Out of the two vehicles featured, the most impressive package belongs to the 722 S version, where the addition of optimized control electronics, a change in compression ratio, and a completely hand-made, improved exhaust system with radio remote-controlled exhaust valves, the vehicle’s output is increased to an impressive 730 HP (up from standard 650 HP). However, the increase for the standard SLR isn;t too shabby either with a bump to 680hp. Top speed for the 722 S is now 213 mph and 211 mph for the standard SLR.

Next to these amazing engine upgrades, the tuner is also offering a racing chassis, new 20" in-house forged wheels, and carbon fiber components for the interior.

I love the unique design in the middle of the front; it seems that it is a real nose. haha I’m impressed with this.

The design is really unique. It looks like an eagle, especially in the front, but the wheel is not really impressive at all. I just think that it’s not fitted with the aggressiveness of this vehicle. Anyway, I’m glad that it had a nice engine.

Whoa! The design in the front is so unique, I’m not saying in a negative way, in fact, it’s a compliment. haha it really caught my attention. Mercedes had always their own design that really can catch your eye.

Honestly, I like the Cabrio version of the SLR. However, I don’t like the style for the front, its kind of over designed. Admittedly, those rims looks gorgeous.

wow! I really love Mercedes for combining luxury and sportiness on this model. However, I think this car is kind of heavy. I just do hope that it will not affect the performance of the car.

If someone is going to compare the handling of SLR and Enzo obviously they have the same figure. If they want a faster version of SLR they need to have a goal for higher speed.

It doesn’t look "evil". It’s too ugly to look evil OR good. It’s just a poorly designed car, much like most of the current Mercedes line of vehicles. The proportions of the gullwing are amateur leaving the only thing of any interest under its skin being the engine.

The SLR is a much more expensive car, and probably a better performer. I’m sure that I would enjoy driving it if I won the lottery.

Wheelsandmore Bentley Continental? What’s next, Discount Tire Bugatti Veyron?

This might just be blacker than the Carbon DBS.I feel like I’m looking straight into a black hole, I can’t look away.

I’ve driven these in Europe and they are truly the best utility vehicle on the planet, at least IMHO. Please clarify.

Regarding the E class wagon, your wording is confusing. Will they offer the wagon with the diesel engine??

yup you can’t shift the forward to reverse quickly you need to stop the car until you can shift... but the main purpose of the CCT is for faster acceleration and remove the hop of the gear while transferring to a lower gear..

the new gearbox is a dual-clutch automated manual transmission that will shift gears by itself or at the driver’s command. it simply means it needs to be fully stop before shifting the gear into reverse.

the engine doesn’t just sit low; it also sits behind the front axle line, an arrangement that is partially responsible for the SLS’s claimed 48 percent/52 percent front/rear weight distribution.

Impressive, i tought they’ve already kill the SLR.. well good thing that it hasn’t, but it looks almost the same as the old SLR.

Well, it has the attention of even the same tuner, which seems to show the same concern for the old 2011 Mercedes SLR by Wheelsandmore, both standard and the SLR 722 S.
