One of Six CLK GTR Roadster Sells For $1,300,000

About two weeks ago we were telling you about an auction organized by RK Motors Collector Car Auctions (RKMCCA) at the Charlotte Convention Center.

Among the cars to be dropped under the hammer between Halloween and November 3rd there were also three rare cars wearing the three-pointed star emblem, but unfortunately just one of them managed to exchange owners.

Only six units of the Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR roadster were ever built in a cooperation between AMG and HWA, so it's rather fair to say that seeing one on the street is an event in itself, never mind seeing one for sale.

Apparently, the model auctioned was the only one in the United States and was more of a garage queen, with only 115 km (71 miles) on the clock. The auction ended with the car being sold for no less than $1,300,000 to someone who will hopefully use it was it was intended, instead of keeping it in an air-conditioned garage until its value rises.
