Limited to just 5-units worldwide, the stunning Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary Edition will be priced from $577,474. In addition to experiencing the powerful AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine, buyers will also "receive an 'in-depth introduction to the operation of the new vehicle,' along with a tour of the factory and the AMG Performance Studio."

The SLS AMG GT3s will be set up by Bernd Schmeider, five-time DTM (German Touring Car) champion and AMG brand ambassador. Buyers will get a certificate and, more importantly, optional driver training at the AMG Driving Academy. The SLS GT3 is not street legal, so they'll need to invest in a trailer as well.
Anniversary Edition SLS AMG GT3s get the obligatory "magnito graphite" everywhere, including the wheels and roll cage. Like any self-respecting racecar, each will also have a number (45) on its door. However, the numbers won't be painted on; those areas will be left bare to expose the car's carbon fiber bodywork.
