Any rare CLK GTR owners out there?

You do not hear about them much mainly because of price and exclusivity. I would love to hear from any, share stories about yours like a day on the track. If you do send me some pictures! I would love to hear from you guys!

Not an owner myself. I have seen one and only one and it was from a distance. The guy who owns it is a friend of my friend. My friend and I where out one day meeting up at starbucks and his friend with the CLK GTR came in. Didnt say too much since he was in and out. Shook his hand chatted and he did not say much about his CLK GTR other then the following


- There are 35 or so made from 98-02(2 of them where protypes and not sold to people
-7 Race cars where made
-20 road going cars(One of them he owns)
-6 convertables costing $1,000,000 or more
- 600bhp, well over 200 mph top speed



The conversation took place in Sarasota, Florida and according to my friend who knows him he lives on Casey Key and has a 12 car collection including a Mc Laren F1


Again I dont know this guy. I met him once and talked for a very short time. He is a friend of a friend.

Wow, that is very impressive. I knew there were only about 25 or less that were considered "road cars". What an opportunity, since you said he was in and out real fast I assume you didnt have the chance to take a look around the car or for him to revv it up or show you the inside even though the inside is very small and hard to get into. I still have yet to see one with my own eyes and cant wait until the day I do. These are truly Mercedes collectibles and are so impressive both through performance and engineering. A true benchmark Of what Mercedes Benz is and does as a car manufacturer. Congrats my friend on seeing one of these. I am Dainel by the way.

No never got close I dont know maybe 50 feet away or so? It was more like hi by got to go zoom. Its amazing to look at. Nothing else like it. God's willing someday I can get a chance to get inside one.
