This doesn't mean that people don't play with them anymore, and one of the best examples in this regard is the following CLK 63 AMG Black Series, which looks and most probably goes like a bat out of hell.
We know that the phrase “racing car for the road” is many times used just as a hyperbole, but this time it should simply depict the actual truth.
The standard CLK 63 AMG Black Series was using a version of the now legendary M156 AMG V8 engine to develop no less than 507 hp and 630 Nm (465 lb ft) of torque.
The model over which you will drop your jaw in the following movie has been “slightly” tweaked with the help of a Weistec supercharger kit and other goodies, including a DTM-like rear diffuser and slick racing tires, so we're guessing it can pretty much run circles around a standard, not-exactly-slow car.
Australians really know how to make an evil car even more sinister, too bad we can't hear more of it.
