We are certain this car will more than double in value in 10-15 Years or sooner! The older, slower and less practical, CLK GTR Road models are in the £1 Million+ Value Bracket at the moment. These rare 4 Seater Race Cabriolets, will follow suit in time. Chassis No: WDB2094421T069386
The DTM Coupes were made in larger numbers and are just 2 Seaters and cheaper to buy, therefore not unique in what they can offer a Track Driver on the road. The Performance of these cars, were purposely underestimated by Mercedes for their 1 of 80 DTM Cabs built, so as not to overshadow the Mighty McLaren SLR, as that was their Flagship Model of which they built 1,200 and wanted to sell more of, than a limited run car, that was costing them a €200,000 loss per each vehicle built! So actual “True” figure may be more like 615BHP? Only about 6 exist in USA and were valued at around $600,000 each in the used car Market! (If & when available that is).

Some Extracts from other written Articles on this Model:-
Technological transfer from motorsport
Alone the exterior design of the new CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet indicates the highest performance at the level of thoroughbred racing cars and attests to the transfer of top-class technology from motorsport: the deep-drawn front apron with large air inlets, striking wheel arch flaring, 19 and 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels and the rear end in diffusor-look are reminiscent of the successful CLK racing touring cars from the German Touring Masters. Numerous body components are made of the high-strength and particularly light carbon fibre composite material CRP, for example the bonnet, doors, front wings, rear wheel arches flaring, the front and rear aprons as well as the rear aerofoil.
Superlative sports car performance
Under the bonnet is the supercharged AMG eight-cylinder engine known from numerous other AMG cars but here specifically redeveloped. There are modifications to the crankcase, pistons, cooling system, intake tract, supercharger and exhaust system. A 5439 cubic centimetres displacement provides the AMG V8 with a maximum performance of 428 kW/582 hp at 6100 rpm, and the maximum torque of 800 Newton metres is available at 3500 rpm. Instant response to accelerator pedal movements, powerful torque increase, exhilarating response and the unique V8 sound are the particular strengths of the AMG 5.5-litre V8 compressor engine which provides the CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet with the performance of superlative sports cars. Racing feeling is also provided by the power transmission by means of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT automatic transmission: the gears are changed by a brief pull of the AMG shift paddles on the steering wheel, the extremely short response times enable a particularly sporty and direct driving experience.
Newly developed adjustable suspension system and differential lock on rear axle
The suspension is also fully appropriate for the high-performance engine. It is a height-adjustable torsion suspension system such as is used in motor racing. The rear axle has been redesigned with completely new spring links and wheel carriers as well as reinforced drive shafts. Uni-ball joints on both axles have replaced the rubber elements to provide extremely precise handling. Optional traction is ensured by a multiple-disc limited-slip differential on the rear axle. The acceleration skid control ASR and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) have been adapted for the increased performance potential.
Optional Dunlop sports tyres for particularly good grip
Contact to the road surface is provided by optionally available sports tyres from DTM motorsport partner Dunlop; the dimensions are 255/35 R 19 (front) and 285/30 R 20 (rear). These tyres have a particularly good grip and are fitted on multi-piece AMG light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design in the sizes 8.5 by 19 or 10 by 20. With their filigree spokes they are not only strikingly attractive, but also ensure an effective brake ventilation. Perfect deceleration is also ensured by the newly developed AMG high-performance composite brake system with six-piston fixed-brake callipers at the front and four-piston fixed brake callipers at the rear.
Functional racing atmosphere in the interior
The interior of the CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet is characterised by a functional motor racing atmosphere with the astute exclusivity of a genuine AMG high performance car. AMG sports bucket seats of ultra-light CRP with leather /Alcantara upholstery provide the occupants with outstanding lateral support. The AMG sports steering wheel with its oval rim is covered in high-grip suede and gives the driver an excellent feel for the vehicle. The door linings, trim parts and other interior components are also of CRP. The redesigned centre console has a striking silver-coloured selector lever unit, starter button and four rocker switches for auxiliary functions. Despite potential racetrack performance the CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet has all the virtues typical of any Mercedes model: everyday suitability, durability, safety, quality and standards of service for the most demanding requirements.
