The Mercedes-Benz SLR 722 GT is a racing version of the SLR created by British race specialists RML Group. The SLR 722 GT is a purist super-sportscar designed exclusively for the racetrack, and it has no approval for on-road use. It was developed to compete in the SLR. CLUB Trophy racing series in Europe. Only 21 SLR 722 GT's are to be produced.

Compared to the standard SLR 722 Edition, the SLR 722 GT has been uniquely and comprehensively re-engineered by RML, especially with respect to the suspension, braking system, aerodynamics, interior and exhaust system. More than 400 components were redesigned in total. The SLR 722 GT also benefits from a dramatic weight reduction program which takes over 320 kgs (700 lbs) off the total weight of the standard SLR.

The redesigned bonnet hides a supercharged AMG 5.5-liter V8-engine uprated by RML to develop a peak output of 680 bhp and a maximum torque of 612 lb-ft. A racing air filter and a new exhaust system ensure outstanding responsiveness and an even more striking engine sound. Power is transferred to the rear wheels of the SLR 722 GT by a five-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted shift paddles, which has been adapted to racing conditions.
