DESCRIPTIONIn 1997, the BPR Global GT Series had attracted so much interest from manufacturers like Porsche and Panoz that the FIA decided to take over the reins to the series. Although this meant the end of the BPR, it also meant the first year for the newly formed FIA GT Championship. Mercedes-Benz saw this as an excellent platform to compete against Porsche and BMW in a supercar grudge match. Mercedes had AMG start to design and build an intense racing machine. The result was a purpose built racing vehicle called the Mercedes CLK GTR. The Mercedes team captured six of the eleven checkered flags on their way to not only the driver's championship but also the manufacturer's crown. To fulfill the FIA requirements Mercedes was required to build a minimum of 25 road versions of their CLK GTR racecar. With the initial, CLK GTR coupe produced in 1998, Mercedes and AMG specialist group H.W.A made a total of 26 CLK GTRs. With only 26 in existence, the Mercedes CLK GTR is one of the most sought after super cars ever produced. However, when you breakdown the numbers you get a clear indication just how rare this CLK GTR Roadster really is. The first 20 were produced as coupe versions. For the final six, H.W.A shed the roof to design a roadster version. The CLK GTR Roadster is easily one of the rarest modern day supercars ever produced. Chassis #3 of the very rarely seen 6, this CLK GTR Roadster is powered by a 6.9L V-12 that pumps out an incredible 604 hp and 572 lb-ft of torque. The roadster is capable of a 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 199mph. What's even more incredible about this CLK roadster is the fact that it only has 72 original miles (116 km) on the vehicle. The roadster, amazingly, is emission compliant, and titled for public street use. With an incredible look, winning background in motorsports, and incredible amounts of power, this rare gem could easily be the premier car of any collection.
