As part of the RM Sotheby’s auction, you can immediately bid on a pair of exotic German flats from Mercedes. He built the road version as a homologation series of his circuit special of the GT1 category.
Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR is among the most exclusive car manufacturers of the last few decades. The German carmaker produced only two prototypes, twenty serial coupes and six roadsters. By the way, two pieces immediately went to, for example, the garage of the Sultan of Brunei, about whom we wrote in connection with rare cars really recently.
Civil version with an epithet Street version it had only direct competition in the Porsche 911 GT1, which was created for the same reason. The Mercedes is powered by a monstrous twelve-cylinder engine with a volume of 6.9 liters without turbocharging, with an output of 464 kilowatts and a torque of 731 Nm.
All the power goes exclusively to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual sequential gearbox with a carbon clutch. Although the CLK GTR received ABS, air conditioning and an audio system, it is still the ultimate circuit special with a top speed of over 320 km/h and acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in well under four seconds.
While the closed-body specimen has driven just over 7,000 kilometers, the roadster with chassis number 000034 is essentially new. Since 2002, he managed to drive only a little over 160 kilometers. In addition, you will receive a set of custom luggage. The coupe is expected to reach a price of around 9 million dollars, so about 208 million crowns. A rarer roadster could even go for thirteen million dollars or so CZK 300,000,000.
The prices of both cars are staggering even by the standards of the rich, but this is an excellent investment. Ten years ago, a coupe in Florida was offered for 29 million crowns at the time. At the same time, it had driven only 2387 kilometers.
The auction of both Mercedes CLK GTRs will take place next Friday, November 17 in Las Vegas, and you can also participate online. Therefore, if you have excess hundreds of millions “rotting” in a low-interest savings account, you can use them in the fight against inflation in just this way, which will also give you more pleasure than gold or stocks.
