Homologation regulations have given us the Maserati
911 GT1 Strassenversion, Lancia Stratos and the Ferrari
288 GTO, to name just a few, but also the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR. While it may have looked like the coupe with which it shared its name, the similarities were only skin-deep, retaining only the instruments and headlamps from the luxury coupe. It packed a 6.9-liter V12 smack in the middle, sending over 600 horsepower to the rear wheels for a 3.8-second 0-60 time and a 200 mph top speed. Only 25 were made, including 5 roadster versions, each selling for over $1.5 million. The Sultan of Brunei bought the only two in right-hand drive.
