Tests on the Mercedes SLR 722 GT in Nurburgring

The extremely limited SLR 722 GT model was caught in tests in Nurburgring. Only 21 autos will be produced, each costing over a million euro. The 722 GT model has its inspiration in the 1955 300 SLR.

Its V8 engine is making 650 hp. The weight is only 2866 lbs, reaching a maximum speed of 209.4 mph. The 0 to 60 mph frame is made in only 3.0 seconds.

At the Nurburgring tests, the 722 GT had a time of 7:38 minutes. It seems the vehicle has some problems with the recent running brake assembly and with the transmission, because of this it couldn`t beat the SLR.

The next tests will be from 20 to 24 October.
