Vintage Racing Festival @ Mosport + McLaren SLR 722

Just finished editing pictures I took last weekend at the Vintage Racing Festival at Mosport International Speedway.

I was lucky enough to met the owner of 1 of 3 McLaren SLR 722 in the country, definitely the coolest car guy I've met. He was racing the red ProCar spec BMW M1 in the race.

I hope you guys like my pictures.

Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722

nice pics, the 722 is so worth the extra $30,000usd, the interior is so much nicer, & the extra carbon fibre is also a plus, all 3 722's came from the dealer I work at.

I think that's because the dealer you work at is the also the only authorized McLaren and Maybach dealership in the country.

Midtown MB is THE place to go for Maybach and McLaren in Canada.

funny you should ask that, I think the customer is picking it up today, it was detailed this morning, so most likely this afternoon it will be gone, but I also saw a new one come in today as well.

well the 722 is a special model so they are all the same colour, all the other base model SLR's we sold are in your typical silver, black, & half a dozen different shades of silver,

I am not so sure about the forth 722 in the country. But as far as I know, all 3 first batch 722 were imported to Canada by Mercedes-Benz before they were bought. In another word, none of these 722 were spec out from factory by their owners. This should explain why they are all have identical options and colour combo.

So it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that 722 is a special model. One can still get it in any other colour if so desired.
