The car performed quite well in the FIA GT competition that year and as part of the terms of entry Mercedes were required to produce a limited production run of road-legal versions. In total, 25 were made all as true to the original design of the race car as possible. The engine was enhanced to a 6.9 liter version and produced 604 horsepower. Mercedes claimed that this allowed the car to reach a speed of 62 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of 214 mph.
