Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR AMG for sale

Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR AMG

This car might be 10 years old, but it’s been so rarely used that it only has 1,500 miles on its odometer. That’s probably why, even if it’s a little outdated, this car is still being sold for $1.8 million.

‘This car’ is the 2000 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR AMG, one of only 25 known vehicles in the world and once considered as the most expensive production car in the world.

Powered by a 6.9-liter V12 engine that produces 720 horsepower and 572 lb/ft of torque, the CLK GTR AMG can run from 0-60 mph in a time of just 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 215 mph, a pretty astounding number for a car that was produced a decade ago.

This particular mode, numbered 17 of 25, is being sold by the Ferrari-Maserati dealership in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and comes with a number of factory options, including monocoque carbon fiber with integrated steel roll bars, a leather steering wheel with airbags, adjustable pedals, an audio system, and air-conditioning.

So if you’re interested in one of the rarest Mercedes production cars in the world – and you have around $1.8 million to spare - you can contact the sellers through Jameslist.
