I have to give it to Mercedes, they milked as much as they could from the C190 AMG GT chassis. Launched for the 2015 model year, the lineup includes the GT, GT S, GT C, GT R, GT R Pro, GT and GT C Roadster, GT Black Series, and the track-only GT Track Series. Missing from that list is today’s car, the GT R Roadster. Production was limited to just 750 units – probably because they wanted people to just go buy the SL63 AMG.
It’s always fun to look at those crazy fast SUV from Mercedes-AMGs past and given they’ve been pumping them out for over 20 years now, there are quite a few. However, when you happen to see one for sale that is tuned by the madmen over at Brabus, you take an extra close look. That is what I thought was going on with this 2012 ML63 AMG with the B63S Widestar kit. Someone spent a pile of money to tack on the extra bodywork and paint it, no matter how you feel about its looks. However, I was quite surprised when I looked under the hood.

Here is another one for the “didn’t know these existed” file. What we are looking at is a supposed 2004 Mercedes-Benz C55 AMG “Tracksport.” What exactly is that? Reportedly the long-time Mercedes special projects wing HWA produced four of these cars based off the C55. This wasn’t just a random project, but rather the same specs as the DTM safety cars. A newer Black Series-style bumper was added along with a full roll cage, some fixed-back front bucket seats, and even harnesses for the rear passengers. To make sure this is a real track car, it is riding on some very slick Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires that you’d be crazy to take out on the public streets. Speaking of crazy, wait until you see the price.

If you are feeling déjà vu, you are on to something. Last month I checked out a 1998 Mercedes-Benz S600 7.0 AMG and now a month later, we have the brother 1998 CL600 7.0 AMG. It is probably safe to assume these both came out of the same collection, and believe it or not, this one checks in with over 100,000 kilometers on the odometer. Long live the M120!
