Even a fancy car company like Mercedes-Benz (or maybe I should say “especially a fancy car company like Mercedes-Benz”) likes to celebrate anniversaries. Coming up is the anniversary for their famous SL model, and to celebrate the occasion, they’re building five special editions of their SLS AMG GT3 custom racecar.

Among the special features of each automobile are a magno graphite matte paint job, an AMG 6.2-liter V8 engine, and much more. And not only that – if you’re lucky enough to be able to shell out $578,250 for one of these machines, you get a Mercedes-Benz factory tour led by racing star (and Mercedes test driver) Bernd Schneider.
