For those with the means, RM Auctions is offering the chance to own not one, but two Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR street cars. Essentially road legal versions of the FIA GT1 race cars, just 25 of these incredible exotics were built to meet FIA regulations, which clearly state that any race car must be based on a production model street car.
As a result, these street cars are actually based on the race cars, and not the other way around. They boast 612-hp 6.9-liter V12 engines, six-seed sequential transmissions with paddle shifters and carbon fiber brakes.
The CLK GTR race cars competed in the FIA GT1 class in 1997 and 1998, taking the championship in their first year.
As mentioned, just 25 of these cars exist with only five of the roadster models ever made.
Both cars will hit the auction block on October 28th at RM Auction’s Automobiles of London sale.
We’ll take both!
