1997 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR goes on sale for an eye-watering $2.7 million
If you fancy owning a Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR, how about this one for an estimated $2.7 million? The monocoque is made from aluminium and fibre, whilst the engine is a 6.7 litre V-12 situated comfortably in the middle of the car, producing a staggering 604 horsepower with the inclusion of 572 pound-feet of torque.
When the model was originally launched 20 years ago, it was titled as the most expensive production vehicle at a price of $1,547,620. This price was concluded because there were only 35 produced, which included the prototypes and racing versions. The model you can see in the image is being offered through James Edition.
It’s been reported that the production figures were low because the version that was created for the road was in order to satisfy homologation requirements for the FIA GT Championship series. Approximately seven productions were sent to the track, while there were two prototypes. Following that, the company only made 20 road-ready coupes, and an additional six roadsters. Each model was produced and built in 1998-1999.
However, if you have your eye on a road car then you should most probably save a larger sum of money than the initial asking price. The one that’s featured here has done approximately 1,800 miles but is set to sell for a hefty $2.7 million. The car is currently in Germany. If you put your foot down, you may make it home pretty quick at it’s top speed of 214 mph.
However, if you are interested we suggest you act on it pronto. Prices are increasing each minute. Alternatively, you can save a few pennies and hire a top-of-the-range Mercedes through Limo Broker today.
