It's a AMG CLR mercedes. Shot made in 1999 in Lemans during the 24hrs. And this car and the number 4 flew. The number 5, this one, flew in the trees.
Spectacular !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I remember the race. I was just wondering if the car had perhaps been participating in legends racing.

Maybe the number 6 because the 4 and 5 CLR was broken during the race. Only the 6 didn't have an accident, I think.

Not sure, but I've seen cars that you wouldn't be able to recognize restored, so they could have been rebuilt. I'll never forget Dalmas' flip in the Porsche GT1 at the Petit Le Mans in Road Atlanta the year before; they repaired it, but then again it was a Porsche. :-)

The Petit Le Mans is 1,000 miles or 10 hours, whichever is achieved first; the American Le Mans series, or ALMS (see: [link]), uses essentially the same rules as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and races at several famous North American tracks including Road Atlanta, Road America, Mosport and Lime Rock.
