380km/h TOP!!

Discussion in '1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Straßenversion' started by benzv8, Oct 21, 2002.

  1. The top speed is wrong I've heard that it can hit 380km/h and can reach 100km/h in 3.1 seconds.
    Anyways, Its still a great car; one that will never be replicated and will always stimulate great interest, even 50 years from now (probably more so then)!
    This is the car of cars.

    true true...gr8 car from MB...just like the SL300 Gullwing from the fifties..will never be forgotten
     
  3. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    nuh-uh brother. the top speed is osub-200mph, probably cos of the insane;y close gearing-1/4mile in 9.4 secs.
     
  4. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    I'm only reporting what I've heard; I don't see why it couldn't at least hit 350km/h!
    I'd still put it in my top 5 favourite cars list.
    But looking at its power, torque & acceleration figures there is no way 307km/h is its max speed.
    I've seen 1.8ltr Turbo A4s hit 300km/h.
    This, as I said before, is the most under-rated and misunderstood car out there.
     
  5. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    no its not. ask anyone what the 962 is and no-one will know.
     
  6. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    Well I know.It's a Porsche.Do you know the Porsche 960?
     
  7. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    I'm willing to bet that this car is limited.
     
  8. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    Has anyone seen the video where one is going so fast, it takes off, and literally flies 300 ft?
     
  9. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    only 25 were produced... what more do you ask of the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR Guru?
     
  10. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    It was the Merced4s-Benz CLR... What more do you ask of the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTr Guru?
     
  11. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    If the spoilers were flat out it could go past more than that... but since it was a FIA GT racer where cornering is essential... Top Speed was only limited to 191 mph... it can go 90 mph in 3.1 sec. NOT 100 km/h in 3.1... and since the Road Version is more likely a direct copy of the Original with the CD player and sound proofing materials... the Road version was bulked to 3500 lbs (1300 lbs. more than the 2200 lbs race ver.) What more do you ask of the CLK-GTR Guru?
     
  12. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    How much G's?
     
  13. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    what do you mean by G's? as in G's in G-Force?
     
  14. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    Well, obviously there are plenty of people who know what a 962 is. After all, this is a supercars website, and the 962 is one of the most famous racing cars ever put on the track. Anyone with any real knowledge of racing or exotics would know that. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  15. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    Latteral G's
     
  16. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    0-60 MPH: 3.1
    0-98 KPH: 3.1
     
  17. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    Just remeber that this car was desinged to compete in the FIA GT series.The tracks didnt allow for such high speeds that why the 1/4 mile sprint is so quick.

    thats why acceleration is the name of the game.Its close ratio gearing will never allow it to go far beyond 310km/h.

    Im a huge fan of mercedes-benz but i dont even believe this shit of 380km/h.

    But in between 0-310km/h this car will take on many, just look at the 1/4 mile time and take into consideration its superior aerodynamics on a road going machine...

    Makes one realize top speed is not everything
     
  18. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    impressive.....this car is sooooooooooo ******* awsome!
     
  19. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    you have to see the car in person, the pictures on this website don't do it justice, i got the chance to see one in person at the FIA race at Laguna Seca man did it sound awsome.

    without speed limiter then yes.
     
  21. Re: 380km/h TOP!!

    sure it can hit 380, I read it out of somewhere it said it' got a speed limtter
     
  22. speed limiter on this!!!!!!!!!
     
  23. the top speed is limited because of the gearing for the 56565416546th time. Rally cars also have alot of power but the top speed is about 200-220 kph. Top speed is not that important if the track is'nt The Autobahn in germany. Stop whinig about the top speed
     
  24. But he's right: it is electronically limited...
