The CLK DTM is the Secret Mercedes Beast!

Πριν μήνα

The CLK DTM is one of the rarest and most unknown Mercedes-Benz cars ever! Only 100 units of the Coupe were ever made, a car that celebrated the domination of the team in the DTM championship. While to many it's a 'secret' and largely unknown, to drive it's something really special, as I've been lucky enough to do at the Mercedes-Benz Museum Dream Cars event!
After immense successes in the DTM championships, following the 2003 win, the team at Mercedes went about creating a road variant to be put into desperately limited production. Only 100 Coupes and then 80 Convertibles were ever made, and of those only a handful were painted in the stunning deep red paintwork of this example retained by the Mercedes-Benz Museum having served duty back at the time on the press fleet. Bernd Schneider, 5 times DTM champion, played a significant part in the development of the car, along with the SLS AMG Black Series and more.
It's powered by the 5.4l supercharged V8 making 582hp (574bhp) and 800nm, a derivative of the engine found in the SLR, and capable of a top speed of 320km/h (200mph) with 0-100km/h (62mph) taking just 4.1 seconds, with the power going to the rear wheels through a 5-speed automated manual gearbox.
The exterior stands out thanks to the wide and aggressive arches over the normal CLK body shape, while the interior strips everything away leaving full carbon door cards and a rear bench of sheet carbon behind the support brace. Originally the car cost €236,000 and all were sold prior to reveal, but finding one on the current market is both very difficult and of course carries a hefty price tag.
Thanks to Mercedes-Benz Museum for the epic Dream Cars event experience, driving many incredible cars including the CLK DTM, SLS Black Series, AMG GT R and many from the Classic collection. mercedesbenzmuseum

The CLK DTM is one of the least well known, rarest Mercedes-Benz models to have been made. It celebrating their immense success in the DTM, and looks awesome with the wide arches and totally stripped out interior. Normally they are silver or black, but how good does this look?!

One of my favourite features of CLs and CLKs of this generation is the pillarless windows meaning once all four windows are down you have a giant opening on the side profile of the car which looks pretty cool.

The CLK DTM is a very, very special car. I remember when it was launched. The car is limited and the rumour going around at the time was that it was due to the Mercedes McLaren SLR... Both were launched at similar times and share a lot of engine commonality (more than either McLaren or AMG would care to admit). Whispers were going around that the DTM actually out-performed the SLR, so internal politics dictated that the DTM would have to have a limiter. Mercedes always denied this was the case, but it was always viewed internally as AMG's (two-fingered) response to the SLR (for a vastly different price point).

It’s a C Class regardless of power or limited numbers!!! It’s not a great platform and never was same goes for the 190E, W201 Great looking car when modified properly and that’s about it. They didn’t handle well due to the short wheelbase had a bouncy ride lacked leg room etc. The best platform has always been the E-Classe in a middle range car since the Porsche built E500 and even tricked out E420 back in the day were awesome guess it really boils down to what you can afford these cars are very expensive for the average person in Germany when it comes to running cost and insurance gas n TUV👍🏼😎 That’s ridiculous $300/$400K you could build a bastardized version of this for nothing idk about all the hoops you have to jump thru to make it street legally version in Germany but in USA no problems. Hell they even put the Mercedes V12 in the E-Class back in the day but today it’s not worth it since you can make way more powerful fun car and lighter with V/8 twin turbos. CLK is junk had one for years was for fun for a bit due to it was convertible
