Mercedes-Benz' CLK GTR captures the barely-tamed spirit of '90s endurance racing

When Mercedes-Benz decided to compete in the FIA's newly minted GT Championship in 1997, its commitment was full-on. In 128 days, it built two prototypes basely (in name only) on the CLK coupe. Lest you think the effort was ill-informed or overly rushed, know that Mercedes also managed to buy an F1 LM from a French privateer team.

The craziest street going Mercedes ever and it could easily break records.
