AMG CLK DTM convertible

Well, with great hesitation, I may sell my beloved DTM.... to the right buyer! I've had this car for 2 yrs now, but with a new business that I just started it may be time to let it go. I'm in no hurry to sell, and will not 'bargain basement' the car. It is one of a kind, STOPS TRAFFIC EVERYWHERE, and enjoys the smiles wherever it goes!

This is the only convertible in Canada, most likely the US. And .. actually the only one in the world as it is not the real DTM ... which as you know is extremely rare (only 76 convertibles made) and super expensive .. asking price between $350,00 and 450,000. This car is based on a low mileage super clean CLK500 ... a lot of genuine parts (which are almost impossible to get) have been used. It comes with all the bells and whistles, such as xenon, carbon interior, AMG/Recaro seats, illuminated AMG door sills, AMG pedals, adjustable suspension and, and, and. It is only insured for 4 months per year, never been driven in the rain. The list is long.

It has been build (150hrs!) and serviced by professional shops and the dealership. A dream! The sound? Amazing!

I have more than $80k invested ... Selling for $69,900 firm.

Questions? Just ask. Location: BC, Canada

you wont be able to replace this with less than 80K. All parts used are $25,000 alone, plus more than 100hrs in the shop (another 12k), plus the car itself ...
but I don't have to sell

authentic Black Series are selling in between 65-70k in the US.
I don't think you'll get any audience on the American side due to the
customs and duties to be added when they bring it stateside.
Good luck

Good luck on finding the "right buyer." Why would anyone buy a car that pretends to be the real thing, when one can buy a w211 e55 for 25k and put away 25k for maintenance and then take a trip to Europe for 20k for what your'e asking?

I was going to say it like that but I was trying to tone down my sarcasm

Just being brutally honest Have you seen how many AMGs are for sale? You can buy a W211 E55 with under 50k for 25k or a W211 e550 with under 25k for 30k. And this isn't even an AMG. "I may sell...if I find the right buyer"--fantasy land.

I think you did a GREAT job with the mods. I am looking at a real dtm convertible in front of me right now and I must say you did an excellent job (got the right seats and everything too).

I actually registered here to let you know most people who have never seen a DTM in real life will not and can never appreciate their beauty. But with only 180 of them (convertible + hard tops) in the world, not many have the privilege. So ignore everyone's ignorance! its an amazing looking car! good job! and $70,000 for this beast is a STEAL! enjoy it!

and. DTM is no ordinary AMG and has nothing to do with black series, can't believe they are being compared. have fun with it in the summer! =)
