The “perfectus” Mercedes McLaren SLR 722 by ASMA Design
In what must be the most non-modest press release ever, German company ASMA Design, specialized in Mercedes Benz tuning program, announced their latest product, the ‘Perfectus’ Mercedes McLaren SLR 722. The company managed to squeeze 50 hp more from the 5.4 liter V8, so the Perfectus delivers 700 hp (525 kW) and a max of 885 Nm of torque at 3,300 rpm. Powered by this engine, the car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds, reaches a top speed of 348 km/h (216 mph) and ‘drinks’ 19.8 liters of petrol per 100 km (11.8 US mpg).
No mention about how much this would cost, but we assume it ain’t pretty. And now here are a few quotes from the press release, which is, like we said before, really interesting (in not such a good way): “But, as these stunning pictures can only prove, Erturul ASMA has taken the McLaren to entirely new levels of automotive theatre. In fact, thanks to Perfectus, you can forget about the world of top-end tuning here on Earth, and now, and only now, think in terms of an awesome new age of carbon customization” or “Only Erturul ASMA can make and prove his claims of perfection, but he must also apologize… apologize to all the owners of standard SLRs everywhere, for there can be only one Perfectus.”
