Parked outside my window is a canary yellow car with California plates that say "AMGDTM"

Sorry for the question, but what does DTM stand for? [?]

Not exactly sure, but it's a German racing circuit/league - their equivalent of NASCAR, sort of.

The CLK AMG-DTM is the most [email protected] car MB makes.
'tis true. Saw CLK DTM in person. SLR pales in comparison to the awesome aura CLK DTM emanates. Wish I could own one... they only made like 100 of road going versions if I remember correctly.

Shouldn't compare race vehicles to road vehicles the SLR engine will last much longer and doesn't require a team of guys to keep it runnning.

Oh yes I'd agree they were awesome.. And rarer than the SLR. I think they had faster engines than the GTR cars, because the Race cars were limited within the series. I'd still go for the SLR though. ;) Sweet pics.

I wish the new CLK was so aggressive, Saw the F1 pit car.. Wow.. saw the road car.. oh no.. So the SLK 55 is still the most agresive.
