1991 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster

Designed primarily as race cars, in total, 26 CLK-GTR production road versions were constructed. Of these, 20 are coupes and 6 are roadsters of which 5 are left-hand-drive. Powering by the M120 V12 based off the SL600. It displaced 6.9 liters and produced around 600bhp. Mercedes-AMG claimed 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph). 

These cars were modified with the removal of their roofs as well as a reconstruction of their engine covers. Also the rear wing was replaced by a separate black wing, close to the one on the race CLK-GTR. Further the Roadster can be recognized by its different grille, which had a large star in it instead of a small version above it. Two rollbars integrating the cockpit 

Headrests were used not only for structural integrity, but also rollover protection.  Inside the interior the two-tone leather interior comes with amenities like air conditioning, power steering, and some storage; the cockpit inspired interior still points to its motorsports background. Lift open the driver’s side door and you’ll reveal a carbon fiber storage component to the left of the driver’s seat that has been attached with a “AMG CLK GTR Roadster Limited Edition" plaque. In front of the two-tone leather driver’s seat is the leather clad steering wheel, which is fully equipped with an integrated airbag. In front of the steering wheel is a bespoke instrument cluster. Making this supercar even more fun to drive is the paddle shifters on either side of the steering wheel. Each seat has been equipped with a 4-point harness for added safety. Between the two seats is another plaque designating the rarity of this vehicle. (wikipedia &
