The special Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster, only 6 cars produced globally, has sold at a price of 10.2 million USD through auction house RM Sotheby’s.

This 2002 Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster is one of six desirable supercars auctioned through RM Sotheby’s. The road racer was made in the late 1990s for the Stuttgart FIA GT Championship.

To meet the relative requirements, at least 25 road-legal versions were built. 28 versions were eventually produced, including two prototypes. However, there is no rule regarding 6 cars in the roadster version. That simply means Mercedes wants to do something new.

The Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster in this article is the 3rd model out of 6 convertible versions. The car’s chassis number is 000034 and has traveled about 167 km (equivalent to 105 miles) so far.

The car was imported to the US in the early 2010s, registered in Wisconsin in 2011, with only 15 miles on it at that time. By 2013, the car had changed owners and had 67 miles on it. Next, the car was sold to a collector in North Carolina. In 2015, the car continued to be sold to businessmen in the UK. Now the car is available in Las Vegas.

Driving the Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster supercar is truly wonderful, but to keep the odo number extremely low and the car intact like that is extremely rare. The Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster auctioned this time also has a specially designed luggage set.

The power of the Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster is a 6.9 liter V12 engine, producing 622 horsepower with rear-wheel drive, which would be great if taken on the track or on a long journey.

Before the auction, RM Sotheby’s estimated that the 2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster would cost between 10 and 13 million USD. This price is truly amazing for a 21-year-old supercar that inherits the peak technology of its time, uniqueness and historical value.
