Auction Block: 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR

Back in the late ’90s, the FIA GT Championship – an ultra-exclusive top-tier racing group – first commenced. And Mercedes-AMG were chomping at the bit to get a piece of it. The problem: they didn’t have a homologated car that was ready to compete. So, over an incredibly short period – just 128 days – they designed, tested, and built the 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR. And now, one of just 25 ever built is headed to auction.

A road going version of Mercedes’ now-legendary supercar, this is the 9th example built – and it’s in absurdly good condition with less than 1,000 miles on the odometer. Everything from the drivetrain, to the paint, to the included booklets and tool chest are original. With 630 horsepower from its M120 V12 engine, this vehicle was the pinnacle of performance back when it was built – and it’s still plenty impressive by today’s standards. That paired with its rarity and immaculate condition are why the folks at RM Sotheby’s are expecting this bad boy to go for a whopping $4,250,000 – $5,250,000. But, if you want to bid on it, you’ll have to register ahead of time for their August 25th Monterey auction.

Purchase: $4,250,000+
