As one of Mercedes-Benz’s most beautiful (but oddly misrepresented) models, the CLK GTR won over the hearts and minds of diehard aficionados when it was first released in 1998. Sadly, only 30 examples would ever be made — but thanks to one of the automotive community’s favorite 3D designers, Rain Prisk, we can finally sleep well knowing the platform has been given the royal treatment for which we’ve all been waiting.

The original CLK GTR was certainly a monstrous vehicle in its own right, sporting an enigmatic mid-engine V12 that produced 604 horsepower and over 572 lb-ft of torque. It sprinted from 0-62 in under 3.8 seconds, making it one of the fastest vehicles produced during the era. Even more ubiquitous was the vehicle’s insane $1,550,000 price tag, which earned it a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive production vehicle to ever grace the industry. Prisk’s modern-day evaluation, on the other hand, adds some of the manufacturer’s most up-to-date design terminologies — including carbon fiber skirts and bumpers, an aggressive, low stance, and an AMG-inspired air scoop mounted on the roof. Fingers crossed that the executives at Mercedes find inspiration in Prisk’s design.
