2009 Mercedes-Benz McLaren 722S Roadster

Mercedes-Benz has revealed details of its astonishingly quick McLaren 722S Roadster, the car named in tribute to the Mercedes-Benz Roadster that Sir Stirling Moss drove to victory in the final Mille Miglia road race in Italy back in the 1950s.

2009 Mercedes-Benz McLaren 722S Roadster-12009 Mercedes-Benz McLaren 722S Roadster-2Delivering 478kW, acceleration from 0-to-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 335km/h, this two-seater cabriolet, according to Mercedes-Benz, surpasses the existing benchmark among open-top super sports cars – the SLR McLaren Roadster. In addition to increased power, the new SLR McLaren Roadster 722 S features even more dynamic suspension tuning and improved aerodynamics.

At the heart of the SLR Roadster 722 S is a powerful supercharged 5.5-litre, V8-engine, which is hand-built in the Mercedes-AMG engine shop in Affalterbach. The special strengths of this high-performance engine include extraordinary responsiveness to movements of the accelerator, a high torque and an unmistakable V8 sound. The maximum speed is 335km/h, which Mercedes-Benz claims is unrivalled by any other series-production roadster.

With just 150 examples, the Mercedes-Benz McLaren 722S Roadster will be predominantly hand-built at the Formula 1 workshops of McLaren in Woking, England, and the car will be available from January 1, 2009.
