To mark the 45th anniversary of its very first SL model, Mercedes-Benz has created five special edition of the SLS AMG GT3 customer racecar, all of which were handcrafted in Affalterbach, Germany.
Each bruiser comes with a special magno graphite matte paint over carbon fiber bodywork, and the racer wears a composite hood, trunk lid, aero work and doors.
Inside the SLS AMG GT3 is a full cage, painted to match the exterior, and carbon fiber shell seats. Under the hood features an AMG 6.2-liter V8 engine hand-fitted by an AMG technician named Bernd Schneider, who carried out most of the development testing of the race car and has won the DTM championship three times.
The five lucky buyers (who also happen to be able to afford the $578,250 price tag) will be presented their vehicles at a handover ceremony in Affalterbach, which includes a full tour of the factory by Schneider himself.
