Limited to a production run of only 100 units, the AMG CLK DTM uses a AMG tuned 5.5-litre V8 supercharged engine developing 582 bhp - fitted in a specially developed chassis, and aerodynamics optimised in the wind tunnel. All this gives the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK DTM the capability to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds, and on to an electronically governed maximum speed of 200 mph.

The design of the CLK DTM AMG was based on the racing version of the Mercedes-Benz CLK, which Bernd Schneider drove to overall victory in the 2003 German Touring Car Masters (DTM) race series and which finished the season as the most successful model in the championship. The fixtures and fittings of the CLK DTM AMG also take their cue from the race track.

The exterior of the CLK DTM AMG is the most notable feature of the car, and includes a low slung front apron with large cooling air inlets, angular wheel arch flarings, 19 and 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, diffusor-look rear bumper and rear wing. Added to which, a number of body components have been constructed from carbon fiber.

The chassis of the Mercedes CLK DTM AMG uses height-adjustable spring and shock absorber units with adjustable coil springs. A multiple-disc limited-slip differential at the rear axle ensures optimum traction, whilst Acceleration Skid Control (ASR) and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) have been adjusted to take into account the enhanced levels of performance.

Inside the Mercedes CLK DTM AMG two leather trimmed carbon-fibre sports bucket seats are fitted with four-point safety belts offering the two occupants optimum lateral support, whilst the oval AMG racing steering wheel with suede covering and new AMG instrument cluster with a 225 mph (360 km/h) speedometer dial bring extra touches of motor racing allure to the interior.
