Excessive weight

Discussion in '1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Straßenversion' started by Ed^-^, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. Is it just me or does that seem a little too heavy for the kind of car the GTR is? Even if it is a roadcar, I would not expect it to weigh as much as a minivan! Does anyone have cny confirmed weight figures for this car?<!-- Signature -->

    I was a little surprised, too. Imagine what would happen if you shed 500lbs! You'd be looking at a 8.5s quarter mile...mmmm<!-- Signature -->

    Most of the weight came from it's soundproofing materials... because if it weren't for this, it's resulting roughness wouldn't qualify this for a road car<!-- Signature -->
