What happens when the horsepower-hungry boys at Mercedes' own tuning house AMG are "forced" to come up with a street-legal, quarter-million dollar, limited-production supercar to meet homologation requirements? The super-fast, 574-hp CLK DTM.

This video's in German, but like music, "fast" is an international language. (We did, however, add a new word to the Autoblog dictionary: "blitzschnell".)

The initial run of 100 über-coupes sold out years ago, and then so did the convertible version, so don't like it too much.
