Back in the late 90s the cream of the crop of Mercedes-Benz was the CLK GTR which was virtually street legal race car. These street versions you see here are replica versions of the GT1 class machines that competed and took the championship in 1997. Each vehicle was equipped with a 6.9 liter V12 pumping out 612 horsepower mated with sequential six speed transmission with paddle shifters and carbon fibre brakes. Only 25 vehicles were made with only 5 roadster versions, which pretty much means that these CLK GTRs are the most exclusive supercars on the planet.
Unfortunately for most of us, we would never own these, but for some lucky few these two examples in roadster version and coupe version is going to auction at RM Auctions on October 28th. Both of these vehicles are brand new and have not been driven except for delivery which means that these are as original as it gets. RM Auctions estimates that these will go under the hammer for the third of its brand new price that can only be good news for couple of car collectors with deep pockets. via: Autoblog
