2001 Carlsson CLK RS

2001 Carlsson CLK RS

Based on the Mercedes-Benz CLK430, the CLK RS was Carlsson’s most radical coupe in 2001. It was specifically prepared and shown at the 2001 Paris Auto Show. The interior space was quite radical, with the rear seats being removed, making room for an integrated roll cage.

Extra power came from Carlsson’s CM60 engine which they were using in several different Mercedes-Benz cars.
