1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR

Only a street car in the loosest sense of the word, the CLK-GTR is nearly identical to its pure racing counterpart, which dominated the GT1 class at Le Mans so thoroughly that after a few wins no competitor wished to challenge it. As part of GT1 rules, Mercedes was forced to produce 25 road cars for homologation. Rather unbelievably, the road car (stra├čenversion) makes only a few minor concessions to streetability, like the taillights from the CLK it shares its name with (but little else), and slightly softer and taller suspension–although trying to get over a speedbump is still a risky proposition. Retained are the racing gearbox, full carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb structure, and an 6.9-liter V12, making performance staggering. The CLK-GTR is really only suitable for the track, considering that components like the gearbox need to be rebuilt at considerable expense rather frequently, so buying a CLK-GTR to use for lightning-quick grocery runs is a questionable plan. However, once on a racecourse, there are few street-licensable cars that can keep up, putting drivers in a very, very exclusive club.
