The most extreme road-going CLK hits Mercedes-Benz showrooms in the autumn. Just 100 CLK DTM AMGs – scooped by Autocar on 20 April and unveiled today – will be sold.

Built to celebrate Bernd Schneider’s German touring car championship (DTM) win last season, the 582bhp CLK hits 62mph from rest in 3.9sec, and is limited to 199mph.

Inside are AMG bucket seats with four-point racing harness and suede AMG oval racing steering wheel. A handful of the cars will make it to the UK, although a right-hand-drive version has been ruled out. Prices will be above €200,000 (£134,000).

Driven this week

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
