vulgar display of power. throw s*it load of money on a masterpiece of engineering and then let it gather dust. any man in their right mind would just rather rent such a beast to drive it 2000km in 10 years...hell even the lowly mcdonalds employee would save up for a weekend with such a beast under his ass. you don't have to be a billionaire...and if you want to keep it for show & tell you can just sculpt a 1:1 model.

I think most people purchased as investments. These cars were not able to be sold for over 1 million (MB lost money due to it cost more to mfg) because the FIA would not allow it. The FIA also dictated that this minimum number would need to built and sold in order for MB to compete in the GTR races. The first year this car was built which only took the engineers a little over 6 months to think up, design, and constuct, the CLK GTR defeated the dominating BMW powered McClaren F1's. The second year, this car won every race of the season forcing BMW to retire from the series. It all went downhill for the CLK after that with the construction of the CLK-LM cars. I think this owner will do alright if he gets the 1.5M. He might even make a buck but it doesn't sound like he will loose any money (like the factory). I saw these cars race at Laguna Seca and they were amazingly quiet compared to the rest of the field. They actually sounded like electric slot cars in comparison. The Panoz was the loudest but the McLaren wasn't far behind. The top of the air intake is only about 33 inches off the ground so the pictures don't do them justice.

The Panoz was the loudest but the "McLaren" wasn't far off. One of the biggest problems owning one of these would be getting it serviced. You can't just bring to a MB dealer. They don't have the training and nearly all of the parts on this car are unique and not actually found on the CLK. If you drive it around and log up miles you will need eventually need to service it.
