Lust-worthy CLK63 AMG Black Series for sale

No massive back story here, it’s pretty simple: my european car came today featuring a modified CLK63 AMG Black Series and I can’t get it off my mind. I re-watched the unrivaled Top Gear segment and had to live the dream the only way I can: eBay ads. It’s simplicity, audacity, and brutality make it perhaps the most lust-worthy post-1980s car I can think of. I want it, and I want to rage in it.

So how to rationalize this dark fantasy? Well, I certainly can’t in my current paygrade, but if I were in the position to spend $70k or more on a sports car, I would overlook the newer M3, the RS5, R8, CTS-V, GTR, the myriad 911s, etc. etc. as they are positively weaksauce compared to this… this is the kind of unique, raw, incredible German machine that I would choose. It’s badass in a way the Aston Martin Vantage V8 only wishes it could be. All 18,600 of glorious driving miles are at around $50k at time of writing with 4 days left; other buy-it-nows range from $75-90k. I’d give organs to have this car in the garage.

Seized 2008 Mercedes SLR McLaren

For those of you who follow the investment world you probably heard of ponzi scam artist Scott Rothstein. With him looking at up to 100 years in jail and the feds taking all his assets, his large modern exotic car collection is up for auction.
The auction catalog doesn’t have too much from Germany. It does have a Bugatti Veyron.
The one German item that caught my eye was this canary yellow SLR convertible. The auction happens June 3rd in Florida.

The high profile nature of this case probably means lots of people will be watching the auction so you may not find any deals here. Also I suspect in a situation like this the yokels who towed the cars and are setting up the auction probably beat the ever loving crap out of the cars doing donuts in the parking lot.
