We know this is the third Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren we're featuring today but we couldn't help ourselves after seeing this sky-blue example featured on Autobild's website.

Vinyl-wrapped by German wrapping specialists cut48 in a gorgeous blue that's only interrupted by the black accents of the sexy side vents and turbine rims, the ravishing SLR McLaren has also been touched by the magic tuning hands of EDO Competition.

Since the original 722 Edition of the car was a bit of a let down since the car didn't have the expected 722 hp, but only a “puny” 650 hp, the EDO Competition “Black Arrow” tuning package more than rectified that.

All it needed was a revised air intake, a new stainless steel exhaust system and an optimized ECU. The supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine puts his money where the 722 Edition's mouth was, delivering exactly 722 hp and a massive 890 Nm (656 lb ft) of torque.

Thanks to the new tweaks, the pictured SLR McLaren by EDO Competition can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in just 3.4 seconds, while its top speed is 345 km/h (214 mph). Now imagine this blue beauty passing you on the Autobahn at full speed and then prepare your wallet with change for lottery tickets.
