A Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition once owned by basketball great Michael Jordan is currently for sale on Auto Trader.
With an asking price of $625,000, the car is far from cheap but beyond having a particularly famous former owner, it is arguably the king of all SLR models (excluding the Stirling Moss).
Introduced three years after the standard SLR, the 722 Edition adopted significantly bolder bodywork, including a new carbon fiber front splitter, enlarged air extractors on the hood, a tweaked grille, distinctive wheels and a more prominent rear diffuser. Additionally, power from the supercharged 5.4-liter V8 was upped from the standard 617 hp to 641 hp.
The seller doesn’t mention if Jordan purchased his 722 new or if he picked it up second hand. Whatever was the case, he rarely drove it, as evidenced by the fact that it only has 1,038 miles under its belt.
