The CLK-GTR, carrying a price tag in the area of $1,000,000, was created by HWA with a reputation of being the ultimate Supercar with indescribable performance. The CLK-GTR was created in order for Mercedes to race in the GT series. FIA-GT rules specify that a road legal car, similar to the road race version, must be built to FIA specifications, and be available to the commercial market. Their road race version was raced in the 98 FIA GT championship, 1998 Le Mans, 1999 Le Mans, and various WSC championship rounds in the US

With the help of Ragun Racing, acting as interface with HWA engineers, ART supplied HWA with four laser heads. Two of the devices used were slightly modified versions of ARTís popular "Laser String" laser plane heads combined with two additional laser string heads converted to straight laser beam type lasers. The straight beam laser sources are the identical laser sources used in ARTís custom lasers built for CART technical inspection which have been used by CART for the past four years and into 2000. Using HWA engineered hub mounts, the lasers are mounted to the wheels with the laser plane sources on the rear hubs and straight beam sources on the front hubs.
