          Even knowing clk dtm, if I saw one, ehh its cool, but not cool looking. So no it would not be like seeing an enzo even for someone who knows... too high of weekend score with its conservative looks

                        the reverse and neutral are written for the reason, that a "R" in a 580hp AMG could also be a "Race" i guess

                                  Was that Jenson Button"s car? I ask because a review of Jenson Button"s DTM was done in the UK and that car was 1 of 100! Just a thought.

Yes, most probably think I've added a ridiculous body kit to a CLK, but I don't care. Most overlook it (unlike driving a Ferrari, Lotus or McLaren) and there are times when I like that. Then they hear the exhaust note when I accelerate and they have second thoughts. It's all about the DRIVE. In over a year of ownership, I've gotten motioned at (roll the window down, pull over, can I look at, etc.) a handful of times by people who knew what it was and all of them said it was the only one they;ve ever seen. The DTM...well, I appreciate it's quirks and uniqueness, but I just don't have room in the garage or driveway for stuff I can't actually drive.

Gimme a saw!". But again, I would rather want have a car build by people who know what they are doing (official manufacturers, hopefully at least) than some tuning company or personal guy you never had heard of.

(Not judging on your skills of course.) I also excpect quality and not some shit someone did in his sparetime.

The hardware list includes super-stiff forged billet steel crankshaft, forged, weight-matched connecting rods and pistons, lightweight AMG-specific chain-driven single overhead camshafts V8 (one cam per cylinder bank) with two intake and one exhaust valves per cylinder, as well as 8 coil packs and 16 spark plugs (two spark plugs per cylinder). Its bore and stroke are 97 mm × 92 mm. The dual-resonance intake manifold with tuned runners helps create optimized torque and power outputs by taking advantage of two resonant frequencies to increase performance. The engine features a high compression ratio of 10.5:1. All of these advanced technologies help deliver a healthy 362 hp (270 kW) and 376 lb⋅ft (510 N⋅m) of torque.
