Only a street car in the loosest sense of the word, the CLK-GTR is nearly identical to its pure racing counterpart, which dominated the GT1 class at Le Mans so thoroughly that after a few wins no competitor wished to challenge it. As part of GT1 rules, Mercedes was forced to produce 25 road cars for homologation. Rather unbelievably, the road car (straßenversion) makes only a few minor concessions to streetability, like the taillights from the CLK it shares its name with (but little else), and slightly softer and taller suspension--although trying to get over a speedbump is still a risky proposition. Retained are the racing gearbox, full carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb structure, and an 6.9-liter V12, making performance staggering. The CLK-GTR is really only suitable for the track, considering that components like the gearbox need to be rebuilt at considerable expense rather frequently, so buying a CLK-GTR to use for lightning-quick grocery runs is a questionable plan. However, once on a racecourse, there are few street-licensable cars that can keep up, putting drivers in a very, very exclusive club.
