    The Mercedes would slaughter a McFlaren in any race with turns! Otherwise the McFlaren would own it, by the way Vettes suck!
     
  2. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    I'm going to say that I like them both a lot, and they are pretty even if you consider all possibilities. Turetto, nice pic, but what are coners? BenJorgy, what's a McFlaren? Sorry about the sarcasm.<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    Why do you always have to compare this car with the F1? both companies... (MERC and McLaren) work in harmony in respect to the racing side<!-- Signature -->
     
  4. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

  5. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    There goes another one... I just hope Kimi Raikonen or David Coulthard wins the title this yeah... I'm just too tired of seeing Michael Schumacher win it everytime... plus I don't dig Ferraris<!-- Signature -->

    CLK vs GTR?

    hmm, I haven't got a clue, but man would I love to see a race!!! I'm gonna search for a vid, and if I find anything, I'll post here for you fellow car lovers!

    Can you imagine what it would be like? 5 Mclarens and 5 Mercs batlling it off in germany. The Smell, the sound, the sight. Pure House power and speed. awwwwwwww www. MUST FIND VIDEO! hehe

    Straight line > McLaren
    Circuit > No Idea

    there both really cool cars, but the Porsche GT1R would beat them both!!!!!!!!!
     
  9. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    There is no such thing as a 911 GT1R... only a 911 GT1 which costs $1,000,000... and I doubt that it would stand a chance... but it's a cool car too<!-- Signature -->

    it just depends on the race:

    1/4 mile = Mercedes
    Top end = MCLAREN

    but thats just me.<!-- Signature -->

    It quit F1 in 1955 due to a motorcar mishap back then that killen 30 or so spectators...<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: CLK GTR vs. McLaren F1 GTR

    clk gtr because it handles better because it is in le mans and it's also got a unbeatable 0-100miles 5.7 and very good 0-60 3.4 and about the top speed try 380km/h without the speed limiter!
     
  16. without the speed limtter, clk gtr goes flying
     
  17. UMM.....sorry to burst any bubbles here, but file footage from a now defunct TV show, called Motorvision saw the McLaren F1 GTR always beating the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR LM up and down Circuit De La Sarthe, home of the 24 Hours of LeMans race, for a better part of the '90s. God for Mercedes' sake didn't win until 1999, even then there was only 1 other that finished 4th or 5th place, which saw two Porsche 911 GT1s placing 2nd and 3rd, in that every same race. I believe that's the case.


    But, regardless of that to have even scored at least 5-7 top 5 finishes in 1995-2000, still shows a great deal of dominance no matter how you look at it.


    But now to answer your question, I'd pick the McLaren F1 GTR by just a SMALL margin, over the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR. Which I don't no about you guys says a lot about this machine.
     
  18. I'd have to say the McLaren F1 GTR...but followed very closely by the CLK-GTR, though.
