Don’t let the CLK name fool you, the 2005 Mercedes CLK DTM was designed through racing knowledge and purposefully built for the road. This specific model began its life as a Le Mans contender. To celebrate the car’s domination from 2000 to 2005 in the European DTM racing series, Mercedes created 100 examples of the CLK DTM.
This car is admired by every connoisseur that happens across the car. This could be because of the massive supercharged 6.0-liter V8 engine underneath of its hood. This potent engine is capable of producing 582 hp and close to 590 lb-ft of torque. This is enough power to take the two-door German from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and to a top speed that’s limited at 200 mph.
Assisting the car’s ability to sprint is its light weight. Mercedes equipped the car with a plethora of carbon fiber. We’re not talking about carbon fiber trimming, we’re talking about carbon fiber that was installed with function in mind.
Currently, Curated has a rare example of this car for sale. This is an opportunity that must not be missed.
In the vehicle’s description, they note: “The CLK DTM is a car to fall in love with. It is not a poser, it is not a parts bin special edition… it’s the real deal. These are the type of cars that set our heart on fire.” We most definitely agree with this sentiment.
