I know that M-B Heritage run a car like that sometimes at their annual Stars & Cars event after the end of the F1 season for the M-B employees and media. It looks like a DeLorean only more powerful, truly awful and obviously built for those with more money than sense.

Looks a lot like the Mercedes C111 gull wing, but that was a 300kph wankel engined beast.
