The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition was introduced in 2006 with the same V8 engine as the previous model albeit modified for an increase in horse power and torque.

Other changes included 19-inch alloy wheels used to reduce unsprung weight, a 10mm lower ride height, a stiffer damper set up, larger 15 inch diameter front brakes, a revised front air dam and a fitted rear diffuser.

The 722 name refers to the victory by Stirling Moss and his co-driver Denis Jenkinson in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR with the starting number 722 (indicating a start time of 7:22 a.m.) at the Mille Miglia in 1955.

Games

Need for Speed: Undercover

The 722 first appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 2 Exotic class vehicle, with a price tag of $225,000. It is unlocked alongside all other tier 2 vehicles after the player completes a Job event requiring a 9.0 Wheelman Level.

It has a high top speed of 224 mph (360 kmh) at the expense of an average acceleration and handling rating.

Need for Speed: Shift

The 772 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 4 vehicle with a car rating of 11.70 and a price tag of $500,000. It is unlocked after the player earns 180 total event stars.

The 722 has the second lowest stock car rating of all the tier 4 vehicles. It is only 1.20 points ahead of the Lexus LF-A Concept. Due to its heavy mass, its weight is not transferred to its outside wheels in corners as well as seen by the Lamborghini Reventón and better handling cars. However, the SLR is still capable of competing against its class competitors on straight roads.

Need for Speed: World

The SLR 722 was made available in Need for Speed: World on August 24, 2011 as a tier 3 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as an A class car.

The weakest driving trait of the SLR is its handling, which is not as responsive nor as precise as most SpeedBoost exclusive cars. Another weakness of the car is its mediocre nitrous boost. The biggest advantage of the SLR is that it has powerful acceleration, a high top speed and it is fairly heavy.

Since August 22, 2012, the steering of the SLR has been significantly improved, which is comparable with that of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

It has become more competitive in race events although the SLR's driving traits are best utilised in race tracks with low-speed corners that are far from each other such as Main Street. The weight and power of the vehicle are useful in pursuit events, too.
