The Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG not only holds the crown for the most amount of three letter-monikers in the model name, but also that of the craziest bodywork that you can’t believe is factory. I don’t want to re-cap everything, but if you want to re-read my post about this model from way back in 2016, feel free. As mentioned, these are extremely rare and qualify to be imported to the United States under a “show or display” exemption at a heavy cost, but it is doable. As the price of this one up for sale in The Netherlands proves, you can probably swing it for you are able to write a check this size.
This is it. This is the big one – literally. The Maybach 62 rings in with a 150-inch wheelbase and a total length of over 242 inches. Single parking spaces need not apply. Starting price? Over $400,000. You can see where I am going with this one. This was a car bought by those who would never drive it. Still, today if you buy one of these to actually drive, you are out of your mind. However, now that these are old enough to legally buy cigarettes? It might not be a bad idea. Well, maybe it’s not a bad idea…
The 997 Porsche 911 generation continues to age gracefully in my eyes. It certainly won’t get mistaken for a new car, but I certainly think it a soothing and classic shape that will go down as a “win” for the design team at Porsche. As with almost cars, the facelift model years always get the first look, but I really like the pre-facelift examples just as much as the later cars. Today’s example, a base 2005 C2, is finished in the classic Guards Red over black leather and has just 39,000 miles. The price? Well … at least it is in the ballpark.
