With only five examples in existence, this is probably the only way you’ll get to see the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary race car in action. This latest video shows the car in its natural home, although we bet most owners won’t be tracking their examples.  

Why? Because the special edition race car is sure to become quite collectible in the coming years. It is based on the racing version of AMG’s gullwing supercar, the SLS AMG GT3, and it is priced from a staggering 446,250 euros (approximately $578,530).

One special aspect owners will be able to boast about is that DTM legend Bernd Schneider helped install the engines on the five cars, and he’ll be personally handing over the keys during a special presentation at AMG’s headquarters in Affalterbach, Germany, later in the year.

While the car draws its design from the SLS AMG GT3 race car, which has managed to rack up 32 victories under various racing formats since its launch two years ago, the styling, particularly at the front, gives us a good idea as to what to expect on the road-going SLS AMG Black Series due out next year.
