McLaren are successfully forging their own supercar path now, and in the past they’ve helped to produce some pretty special machinery with other manufacturers. BMW contributed their mighty V12 engine to the McLaren F1 project, but it’s their collaboration with Mercedes, until recently McLaren’s long-time Formula 1 engine supplier, for which they are probably most well known.
This is the McLaren-Mercedes SLR 722, produced in 2006 to celebrate Stirling Moss’s 1955 win of the Millie Miglia in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR (with the racing number ‘722’). Producing 650bhp the SLR 722 could reach 60mph in just 3.6 seconds and went on to a top speed of over 200mph.
This spectacular replica of the famous supercar comes from previous bloggee Alexander Paschoaletto and it’s a work of Lego art. Everything opens and the detailing is second-to-none – you can see more on Flickr by clicking the link above plus there’s a huge gallery of images available on MOCpages; click here to see all the photos.
