    Errr...why is it so slow?
    I mean, the DTM cars are almost as fast as the LeMans prototypes, and this street version is slower than a GT3RS?

    My guess, the weight is the mainfactor here and maybe a manuel tranny would help but I say, weight is mainreason.

    The DTM cars have a weight around 1000 kg (3300 lbs.) and a significantly lower center of gravity.

    The CLK-AMG is substantially heavier than its counterpart for racing.

    Funny thing that the car is only built 100 times - the fact that it's the besthandling Mercedes ever doesn't say much.

    Re: SportAuto Supertest: Mercedes CLK-DTM

    not got result on the Nordschleife.........

    Re: SportAuto Supertest: Mercedes CLK-DTM

    Does the Nordschleife time matter>? Or any other track time?

    Apart from the usual "you'll never track your car, why the interest in track ability" argument, what about the SL55?

    In delimited to 186mph form, it can lap the ring in 8.06, which ias faster than 360/575/Vanquish, M5 etc., does that make the SL55 a batter feelsome car>? A car that gives sportscar feel? A replacement for a sports car>?

    NO.

    In my view, its all about on-road manners and feel. ( for a sportscar) For a Mercedes, I'm assured the very best on-road manners....for comfort that is Deploying 700MM is a little harder...

    Conslusion: STOP obsessing over track times!

    Re: SportAuto Supertest: Mercedes CLK-DTM

    Laptimes are intresting but if we shall talk about laptimes and compare with other cars, then compare it with same type of cars.
    For instance comparing a Carrera GT to a SL65 and so on...not same type of cars which make it pointless to compare them.
