The Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet

The CLK AMG DTM - one of the most unusual vehicles to be put on the road in the course of the history of Mercedes AMG. Developed and built at HWA, AMG’s racing department. With extra wide fenders that immediately let you guess its origin, it has a low slung front apron with large cooling air inlets, 19 and 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, as well as a rear end that provides for optimal output with its diffuser originating from racing sport and the rear spoiler. All this recalls the CLK racing touring car by AMG with which Mercedes-Benz won nine out of ten races during the 2003 DTM season. A host of body components are made of high-strength and extremely lightweight carbon fibre reinforced polymer CRP - e.g. the doors, the front wings, the wider rear wings, front and rear bumper and the rear spoiler.

The car was modelled on the German Touring Car Masters (DTM) car, the racing version of the Mercedes-Benz CLK, with which Bernd Schneider won the championship in the 2003 racing season. The interior of the CLK DTM was also modelled on the racing model: AMG sports seats ensure the best lateral support, the oval-shaped leather AMG racing steering wheel and the AMG instrument cluster with its 360 km/h speedometer scale ensure the interior also has motorsport flair. Door panels, trims and other interior components are also made of CRP. The specifically revised version of the AMG supercharged eight-cylinder engine, which is well-known from numerous AMG vehicles, lurks under the bonnet. Modifications have been made to the crank-case, pistons, valve train, cooling system, intake duct, supercharger and exhaust system. The 5.4-l AMG V8 engine draws a maximum output of 428 kW/582 hp at 6100 rpm, and the maximum torque of 800 Nm is available at 3500 rpm. This ensures driving performance at the level of a super sports car. Limited electronically - the top speed is 320 km/h. The five gears are changed by giving the AMG paddles on the steering wheel a short pull, the extremely short gear shifting times allow a particularly sporty direct driving experience. The suspension is just as beguiling as the powertrain. A height-adjustable coil-over suspension is used as is usual in motorsports. The rear axle has been redesigned to include new spring links and hub carriers, as well as reinforced drive shafts.

Uniball joints on both axles replace rubber elements. A multiple-disc limited-slip differential on the rear axle ensures optimum traction, whilst acceleration skid control (ASR) and the electronic stability program (ESP) have been adjusted to take into account the enhanced levels of performance. A newly developed high-performance AMG composite braking system with six-piston fixed callipers at the front and four-piston fixed callipers at the rear ensure flawless response. The production number of the convertible version was like the coupe limited to 100 units, but only 73 were built.

The vehicle offered here was delivered on the 9.05.2006 and only a month later, on 22.06.2006 on its first owner, a successful management consultant and passionate Mercedes collector, living in Ostfildern near Stuttgart. In the following 4 years the vehicle remained in his ownership and was moved only for special occasions. At the end of March 2010, the owner, who already knew our company well, decided to part with his CLK DTM Cabriolet and so the cancellation of the car took place on 24.03.2010. The vehicle then found its way into our own collection and was not re-registered. Therefore, the vehicle registration document shows even today only only one previous owner. With a mileage of only 4,970 KM, the car can be described as absolutely new, even after more than 13 years. Always maintained by our collection management, the technical condition leaves no doubt. We are delighted to be able to offer one of the most extraordinary models of the Mercedes-AMG brand with this vehicle and we will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
