When it comes to high-performance Mercedes models, A, M and G are the three letters to look for. However, this AMG-tweaked CLK convertible has another important three letters in its name: DTM.
While AMG is staffed by Mercedes' most power-crazed spanner-wielders, DTM signifies Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters – Germany's touring car championship. Add the two names together and you have a recipe for one hell of a sports car.
In the case of this 2007 CLK DTM AMG convertible – up for grabs in Saudi Arabia with just 9,400km on the clock – this is the drop-top version of the CLK built to celebrate the German car company's involvement in the DTM. And what better way to celebrate than tuning the CLK's already well-endowed supercharged 5.4-litre V8 motor to produce a ludicrous 582bhp?
Despite being hampered by a five-speed automatic gearbox, this power was sufficient to launch this four-seater bullet to 62mph in just 4.0 seconds, with the muscle transferred to the Tarmac through whopping 20-inch, 285mm-wide rear tyres. As for the top speed, that's limited to 186mph - fast enough, we think.
Just in case you need any more persuasion, this was, according to Mercedes, the fastest drop-top four-seater in the world, writes Top Gear. With the price tag standing at just under £200,000 when new and just 100 built, we'd imagine that if you have to ask the price (it's advertised with a "Price on Request" logo), you definitely can't afford it...
If you can afford it, though, head over to the Saudi dealer now.
