Mercedes AMG CLK GTR: a rarity for auction

In the 1990s, Mercedes developed the CLK GTR with a view to entering it in competition in the FIA ​​GT category. To do this, the German manufacturer had to produce at least 25 examples of the supercar, homologated for the road: the “Strassenversion”. This is how 20 models of the CLK GTR coupe were born, as well as six very rare examples in the Roadster version.

It is one of these 26 copies, a Coupe version from 1998, which will go on sale next month, at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Its first owner was Hermann-Dieter Eschmann, a German businessman who kept it until 2005, before selling it to a Hong Kong-based collector. In 2017, the car was then bought back by an American, who is therefore preparing to put it back on sale, with barely 1,442 kilometers on the odometer.

Mercedes AMG CLK GTR: 604 horsepower V12 under the hood

The car is sold with its complete documentation, a battery charger, a torque wrench, or a set of sockets.

Under its hood, we find in the rear central position a 6.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 signed AMG, which then served as the basis for the 7.3-liter engine used in the CLK GTR SuperSport as well as the Pagani Zonda. This develops a power of 604 hp for 775 Nm of torque, allowing the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.8 seconds, for a top speed of 344 km / h.

This rare Mercedes CLK GTR will go on sale on August 13 and 14, 2021, on the sidelines of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, by the house of Gooding & Company, which already estimates its value between 8.5 and 10 million dollars, i.e. the equivalent of 7.2 to 8.4 million euros !
