Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster 1 600x450 at Rare Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster to be Auctioned by RK Motors

RK Motors Collector Car Auctions announced some details of its November 2013 event, and it includes some very fine German cars. The list includes the one-Off, 268mph Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000; Ultra-Rare Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster; and 1954 300SL Gullwing.

It is a Mercedes fan’s wet dream this lineup, especially the CLK GTR Roadster. It is one of the ultra-rare models tuned by HWA, limited to only 6 units. The CLK GTR was originally conceived as a purpose-built, FIA GT-champion racing car. But rules dictated that in order to be eligible, 25 road-going versions must be produced and sold. And this is one of the only six roadster version of the total 25.

This Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster, chassis number #3, is basically brand-new with only 71 miles on the clock. It is powered by a 6.9L V-12 that pumps out an incredible 604 hp and 572 lb-ft of torque. That translates into a 0 to 60 time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph, on the par with the most serious supercars of today.

As mentioned, RK also offers a 1954 300 SL Gullwing with only 45,687 original miles, which is interesting, but not as interesting as the one-of-a-kind 1995 Mercedes-Benz Lotec C1000, which was commissioned by a United Arab Emirates-based businessman who had envisioned owning the world’s fastest street-legal car.

The Lotec is powered bya 5.6-liter twin-turbocharged Mercedes-Benz V8 engine with twin Garrett turbos generating 1000hp, achieving zero-to-60mph in 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 268mph.
