Counting Cars shows the work that Danny "The Count" Koker and his crew go through to restore and customize classic vehicles, from acquiring the rides -- whether he finds them at an auto auction or a roadside diner -- to restoring and modifying the vehicles to help flip them for profit. Classic cars, like Thunderbirds and Corvettes, and motorcycles are often seen in his shop, Count's Kustoms. This edition Counting Cars Supercharged of the half-hour show features enhanced versions of episodes that previously aired as part of the original run.

Counting Cars Supercharged - Mercedes-Benz SSK - Netflix
The Mercedes-Benz SSK (W06) is a roadster built by German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz between 1928 and 1932. The name is an abbreviation of Super Sport Kurz, German for “Super Sport Short”, as it was a short wheelbase development of the Mercedes-Benz Modell S. The SSK's extreme performance and numerous competitive successes made it one of the most highly regarded sports cars of its era.

Fewer than 40 SSKs were built during its production span, of which about half were sold as Rennwagen (racing cars). Many were crashed while racing and subsequently cannibalised for parts. Only four or five entirely original models remain, and their scarcity and rich heritage make them among the most sought after cars in the world; a 1929 model was auctioned at Bonhams in Chichester in September 2004 for £4.17 million (US$7.4 million), making it the second most expensive automobile ever sold at that time. Another SSK, a streamlined “Count Trossi”–bodied version (see photo) owned and restored by fashion designer Ralph Lauren, has won best of show at both the 1993 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and the 2007 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
