Mercedes CLK GTR returns to McLaren F1 and Porsche 911 GT1

The road versions of these 3 cars that have marked the history of motorsport, and more particularly the 24 hours of Le Mans, are meeting on the Millbrook circuit in England for a summit meeting!

The time has come to end this series of incredible reunions. After the McLaren F1 and the Porsche 911 GT1, let’s move on to the last car of the trio, and not the least: the Mercedes CLK GTR! It has flourished with the limits of the rules of its category. It was so efficient that it sounded the end of GT1 at the 24h of Le Mans.

Full carbone !

If the other 2 are already very close to their competition counterparts, this CLK GTR is definitely a racing car! We notice it once the body is removed to reveal the incredible carbon fiber chassis! This material is present everywhere! It is in particular this which entirely composes the immense air intake which feeds the engine located in the rear central position.

A Pagani engine

This engine is famous, because it is found with a larger displacement grafted to the back of the Pagani Zonda! In the GTR, this atmospheric 6.9-liter V12 develops 612 hp, enough to send the car to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds.

Immensely uncomfortable

This car is huge with its 4.9 m long! But its interior is microscopic, to enter it you even have to remove the steering wheel. Once inside, there is no form of comfort, this vehicle is designed to explode the lap times on the circuit and more particularly that of the Sarthe.

Watch out for takeoff!

If the CLK GTR is famous at Le Mans, it is not for its classification, because it has never won in France.. But rather for his impressive accident in the straight line of the Hunaudières. So in pursuit of a competitor, the car simply took off before crashing into the woods next to it, with a certain Mark Webber (former F1 driver) at the wheel.
