The Mercedes CLK DTM AMG was a special version of the full
racing 209 CLK DTM which took part in the German Deutsche
Tourenwagen Masters racing series.  It was only produced in
2004 and 100 coupés were released for sale with only 40 of those
built in righthand drive.  In Germany, new, the car cost some
€236,000 after taxes and was limited to special order or invitation
of ownership and rapidly sold out. 

At the heart of the DTM is AMG's supercharged 5.4 litre
V8.  The CLK DTM produced 582hp; acceleration is just 3.8
seconds to 60mph with the top speed limited to 200 mph.  The
front and rear track are widened and special tyres and suspension
modifications were fitted.  Transmission is a five-speed
semi-automatic box.  ESP helps keep everything under control,
aided by a mechanical limited slip differential.  Like its
racing counterpart, the road car makes liberal use of carbon fibre
for its body panels.  Carbon fibre is also used for much of
the interior fittings, including the lightweight leather/alcantara
trimmed bucket seats. 

Originally supplied to Singapore from new and registered on
8th March 2006, it is now UK registered to its first and
current UK owner. Used rarely, this lovely example has only covered
9,940 miles from new. A fully documented Mercedes-Benz service
history confirms the genuine mileage.  As you would expect,
the car is in excellent condition throughout and has been expertly
cared for and maintained.  The car also comes with all its
original books, handbook, service book and Certificate of
Conformity.  The car has been serviced at Mercedes-Benz
Southampton and fitted with a new, mile per hour, DTM speedo, reset
to its correct mileage prior to its UK registration on
1st March 2016 (the old kph speedo is supplied with the
car). A V5 document, current MoT test certificate valid until
November 2017 as well as various bills and receipts for servicing
from Mercedes-Benz accompany the car and, for peace of mind, a
Vodafone CobraTrak 5 is installed.

These cars are incredible investments for the future and
thrilling to drive with stunning performance.  With so few
made, these cars do not enter the market place that often.  A
rare car, such as this in righthand drive, is extremely hard to
find. A fantastic opportunity to buy and a highly credible
investment opportunity. 

This car has just taken part in an Autocar magazine article due
to be published on Wednesday 23rd November.
