Mercedes-Benz SLR

Daimler-Benz signed up Stirling Moss for the 1955 racing season. On May 2, Stirling Moss won the Mille Miglia in the record time of ten hours, seven minutes and 48 seconds at the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, together with navigator Denis Jenkinson. Similar to his team mates, Moss and his navigator, motor race journalist Denis Jenkinson, ran a total of six reconnaissance laps beforehand, enabling "Jenks" to make course notes on a scroll of paper 15 feet long that he used to give directions to Moss during the race by a coded system of hand signals. Moss and Jenkinson were competing against drivers with a large amount of local knowledge of the route, so the reconnaissance laps were considered an equaliser, rather than an advantage. Moss and Jenkinson arrived in Brescia in their Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR with the now famous No.722 car, setting the race record at an average of 159,65 km/h which was fastest ever on this 1597km variant of the course.

 

Mercedes SLR McLaren 722
50 years later, in 2005, Mercedes teamed up with McLaren to produce a new 722.
The carbon fibre grand tourismo body design and the classical styling elements from the legendary SLR racing car of 1955 were blended to bring us the fantastic Mercedes SLR McLaren 722. Its high performance 5.5 litre V8 supercharged engine can accelerate the car to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds, reach 180 mph in just 28.8 seconds and go on to a top speed of 207mph. Taking much of its aerodynamic design and cutting edge technology from Formula One, the SLR is one of the fastest road going sports cars.

 

The Scalextric models
The famous No.722 car from 1955 driven by Moss is modeled in excellent detail including exceptional detail to the cockpit area which of course includes Jenkinson in the navigator’s seat. This car is the second release of several variants.
The modern McLaren 722 is a variant of the super-car which incorporates a special front air splitter, new wheels and, of course, ‘722’ discretely positioned on its front wings.
