Nice Whips: 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR

Nice Whips: 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR

This menacing 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR is now available to bid starting at $4.25 million. The limited production Mercedes-Benz AMG was borne from the upper echelon of FIA GT racing design, which was essentially a battle between Germany’s top three automotive rivals: Mercedes (CLK GTR), BMW (McLaren F1) and Porsche (911 GT1). The original Mercedes CLK GTR won the FIA GT Championship in 1998, and the above road-going version is the ninth of the only 25 examples ever built.

The highly sought-after collectible remains all original, including its original body, engine, drivetrain, as well as factory-applied paint finish. Also included are the original owner’s manuals, service booklets, spare keys and first aid kit. The gear changes are “lightning-quick,” thanks to paddle-operated six-speed sequential manual gearbox lifted from the GT1 model, while a mid-mounted 6.9-liter V-12 produces a raw and forceful exhaust note. The car was first delivered to its original owner Hermann Eschemann in Germany and then sold and exported to Hong Kong in a private collection, where it remained for 12 years until acquired by its current owner in the U.S.

You can bid for this 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR, starting at $4.25 million, at RM Sotheby’s now.
