This Mercedes-Benz SLK340 is not your average hair-dresser’s car. It’s a purpose-built hill climb racer complete with a full roll cage and V8 engine up-front.
From the outside, it looks like mostly like a normal SLK if you strip away the enormous rear wing and the low-slung bodywork. However, the stock engine has been replaced with a LMP2-spec 3.4-liter Judd V8 engine that puts out 610 hp and yet it weighs just 780 kg.
Checkout the video below as the SLK340 makes its way up a twisty hill climb. Also note how the massive rear wing and splitter work to keep the car planted to the road surface.
