Mercedes road car of some kind. Photographed in a gas station on the way to Vegas. Driver of the flatbed said it was used in a Batman film????? and he was transporting it to Vegas to be displayed in one of the casinos.
Have searched the net for details, but come up with nothing. It's really bugging me now.

Velocity Red - 5spd.
Not due out for a while. Directed by Christopher Nolan, who did Memento and Insomnia - bodes well. Christian Bale seems like an odd choice for the role, but odd choices do work well sometimes - cf. Spiderman.
Found it! I'm not sure if this is actually the car rather than a replica (though I doubt it), some reports say 1 was made, others say 2 were made. There is also a V12 Ferrari powered version of the car. As far as I can tell the car somehow made it's way to the states after the prince from the united arab emirates sold it. I believe Prince Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum was the person that commisioned Lotec and Mercedes to build the car and he probably has the most extensive car collection in the world. The guy can basicly call Ferrari or any other auto maker and get get a completely custom car made, and he does this regularly.
There was an old C&D article on the Prince as well that some of you might remember. I'm trying to find the article but can't, if I recall he has multiples of cars like the Ferrari F40, F50, McClaren F1, 959, etc. He also is responsible for and donated the land for the F1 track in Dubai, mainly because he's a car enthusiast, he also wants to have a place to race hiw own cars... Rumor has it he recently ordered 35 F1 race cars for his personal collection since the old F1 cars he has sitting in his car catacombs are previous F1 champion cars driven by the likes of Shumacher and past F1 champs.

They look rather different IMO, it actually looks a lot more like other Le Mans style cars than it does the CLK GTR. I think it even shares more similarities with the Zonda than it does the newer Merc.
