A Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition once owned by basketball great Michael Jordan is currently for sale on Auto Trader.
So, not only that it had a famous owner, one of the best basketball players in history, but it is also a special version of the SLR that was introduced in 2006 (this is a concrete example from 2007). Version 722 was named after the legendary Stirling Moss, who in Mercedes 300 SLR and with the start number 722 won a cult Mille Miglia.
Under the cover there is a 5.4 liter V8 engine with a supercharger which in version 722 has 650hp and 820 Nm of torque. This means that up to 100 it reaches in 3.6 seconds, while the maximum speed is impressive 337 km/h.
In addition to increasing power, this version is highlighted by visual enhancements such as the new 19-inch wheels, carbon elements, a slightly different diffuser and discreet markings 722 on the side of the car. All this contributes to the aggressive impression of this super sportcar.
Jordan obviously rarely drove it, as evidenced by the fact that it only has 1,038 miles under its belt. And, the price – $625,000.
