Wow. Did you even bother to check on your facts before posting? The fact that you consider the CLK to be the most race-worthy car built by MBZ further convinces me the only experience you have around MBZ vehicles is what you read about in car magazines. Ever heard of the SLR McLaren? Oh, and since you don't bother to actually research anything you say before speaking (not entirely surprising), I thought you might appreciate this SLK350 (raced in the 24 hours of NÃ¼rburgring by the Carlsson team):
This is Carlsson's SLK-55:
Of course, you know, never let facts get in the way of a good argument. And what was your point again? Oh, that Mercedes doesn't race SLKs, and that the CLK is the only race-worthy car in their lineup. God, I think that statement is actually stupid enough you'd get confused looks from any of the AMG, Kleeman, Carlsson, Larinser, etc race tuning shops for MB products.
Are you seriously telling me you think the CLK is a better race vehicle than an SLR?
