Saw a rare one the other day.

I was in Anaheim for a trade show and heard about a gathering of gear heads on Saturday called "Cars and Coffee" It worked with my schedule so I was able to spend some time there last Saturday. If you live in SoCal or will be there anytime you should go to this show. It doesn't cost a thing unless you get a coffee and the cars that attend are amazing! One I thought I'd mention was the brand new CLK AMG-DTM! This was #33 of 100 and it actually has 2 VIN #'s-second is issued at AMG raceshop. It is not legal in CA so the owner has to get one trip passes to go anywhere in it. It appeared that it is mostly carbon fibre,factory roll cage, racing shells (leather upolstered)carbon wing,spoiler,diffuser,etc , 5.5 ltr V8 and I did not hear if it's supercharged or turbo'd but I think it's a blown engine-no info on BHP. I was blown away to just see this at a casual gathering- along with the 5 gullwings, ultra rare Ferrari's and even a F-1 Ferrari and a LeMans prototype.

I think the CLK-DTM is naturally aspirated (at least in the races), but I read that the ones being sold were supercharged.

2002 Mercedes-Benz ML320 (sold)
2011 Chrysler Town & Country
2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid
2003 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic

When you're posting, scroll all the way down and you'll see an option to manage attachments, click on that, and then click the browse button and browse your computer and select the picture, then click on UPLOAD and it will upload the pic for you and will be displayed in your thread/reply when you post it.

It can also be translated as "German NASCAR." The street CLK DTM bears about as much resemblance to a DTM racer as a Chevy Monte Carlo to a NASCAR racer.

That being said, I'd still love to get my hands on a CLK DTM. It's an extraordinary car and very rare.
