The Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 was already a special edition version of the normal SLR, itself a rare automobile. Going one step further, the German automaker is releasing the SLR 722 GT in conjunction with British motorsports company RML Group. The car is a track day special and meant to compete in a club racing series, so buyers will be private race teams that can afford the initial buy-in cost and maintenance of what is essentially a race car based on the SLR 722. Motor Authority reports that 21 buyers have already been found who are willing to pay the €1 million price tag for each car. Their chunk of change will buy modifications to all the go fast components, including the suspension, brakes, aerodynamics, exhaust and even the interior. The AMG-sourced 5.5L supercharged V8 now develops 671 HP, which is up from 650 in the SLR 722 and 617 in the normal SLR, thanks to more boost pressure. We can clearly make out a new front apron and rear fender flares to accommodate a larger wheel/tire combo, as well as side sills that look sharp to the touch. Out back you'll find a rear diffuser and who can miss that giant fixed rear wing? It certainly looks the part, and we're betting the Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 GT acts the part, too.

      and when you're done with the race you can go watch your kid's ball game and sit on the ginourmous park bench of a wing!

      The car looks pretty sick, I'd love to see a video of one in action

      One beautiful and expensive race car; Mercedes-Benz SLR 722. Hmmm...I wonder if this supercar will be driven as a daily driver... my, goodness!!!

      I can imagine what the insurance must be like... (a race car based on the SLR 722)...wow, very interesting.

      (German and Bristish automotive craftmanship at it's finest... AMG-engineered, carbon-fiber monocoque chasis, front inline 5.5L twin-supercharged V8 rear wheel drive, producing a new 671 HP output, =a exceptionally gifted race vehicle)

      Ohhh man. Imagine having both, an FXX and this SLR? Come on Top Gear!

      I don't recall the FXX Evoluzione's weight being given, nor do I see the 722 GT's weight, but I would think the FXX would have a bit more go considering its horsepower (+179) advantage...
