    The CLK would win because of its beter handaling and accelersation the McLaren does the 1/4 mile in 10.6 the CLK does it in 9.6 and the McLaren F1 GTR doent have the top speed of he F1 241 it compromises top speed for beter handaling due to the rear wing and other ajustments so the McLarens top speed might be a little beter but over all the CLK would win. I think the porsche GT1 would beat them both.

    Dude, Im not sure but my friend told me they did actually race and the CLK GTR actually LAPPED the McLaren. I don't think hes kidding and I think he saw it in a vid. I'll try to find it later. Good luck.

    but I'm still intrested in that Mac F1-CLK-GTR video... where the hell is it? I've been waiting for 2 weeks for a link!<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    Wait. Are we talking about the CLK-GTR road car or race car?<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    I think it's the CLK-GTR road ver. ver the Mac F1 obviously a road ver.<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    But there is almost no way that a road-going version of the CLK-GTR has ever been on the track at the same time as a Mclaren F1. I think he was talking about a race.<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    Both cars are excellent...i would go with either one...but if you want to offer me one, offer me the merc cauze its more expensive...<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  18. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    the clk-gtr and the McLaren F1 have already raced and the clk-gtr blew the McLaren F1 out the water. but I believe that the McLaren would win if it were a long straight because the McLaren has a faster top speed but the Clk-gtr has better acceleration.

    i go merc any day mercs kick ass and the mclaren is a much flashier car i couldn't ride around in the streete with one of them oppossed to a merc<!-- Signature -->
     
  20. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    This pic was on a mclaren site its of a mclaren f1 gtr (i think) being being lapped by a clk -lm kinda different but prety much the same as far as i know.
     
  21. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    Hmmm... interesting info ya got there<!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    If we're talking CLK-GTR road car, the Mclaren would easily win. If we're talking CLK-GTR race car, the Mercedes would win.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    since the CLK-GTR road car had a lot of weight dedicated to soundproofing materials making it heavier... it may be justified that the McLaren F1 wins a race... but it all depends on the driver <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

  25. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    In a drag race the CLK will kill the McLaren, obviously up to a certain point, the CLK, after 0-60 will literally blow by the McLaren, which will eventually catch up, but not until they are both going around 200 miles per hour. Around the track i'd have to give it to the Merc also.
