How time flies!

The calendar seems to be moving faster than ever in 2014 -- only five years since the 75 hand-made SLR McLaren models left Woking in 722 Stirling Moss trim. A speedster without a windshield or any attempt at a convertible top, the stunning machine could reach a true 219-mph.

Only the brave need apply -- which is the perfect homage to Sir Stirling Moss's racing achivements during his career. These include winning the Mille Miglia for Mercedes-Benz -- but Moss also raced for Maserati and Porsche during his reign.

The inspiration and celebration of Stirling Moss is, of course, extra exciting because he is alive today. A remarkable run with a character-filled spokesman available? That is a rare opportunity.

Racing was far, far more dangerous during the 1950s and 1960s. In fact, it has only recently become a safe endeavor whatsoever.

The rumors about the Mille Miglia include cocaine-fuelled adrenalin, toxic fumes, extreme race heat as well as cold, and the thrill of powering through tiny Italian villages and big cities at full power. Imagine an Isle of Man TT that is 1000-miles long --- and you quickly understand why the race set off so early in the morning.

Moss's winning car roared from the start at 7:22am on that incredible day --- making this 722 SLR McLaren a true hypercar hero for the ages.
