Two rare 720bhp Mercedes CLK GTR supercars sold for more than £1 million at auction last week.
Just 26 examples of the GT1 race car derived machine were made for the road in the late 1990s, 20 coupes and six roadsters.
The top sale of the evening was a 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster, the only right-hand drive example built, was sold for £616,000, while the coupe went for £522,500. Although it has not been confirmed, they are believed to have been owned by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei.
The estimate price for the coupe wass £370-390,000, while the roadster estimate was £430,000-£500,000 - around a third of what they cost new.
Modified only slightly from the race car, the CLK GTR is powered by an Ilmor modified 720bhp 6.9-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine with dual overhead camshafts. It had 572lb ft of torque and a claimed 0-62mph time of 3.4sec.
Showing its race pedigree, it also has a six-speed sequential manual gearbox with paddle-shift operation, independent front and rear suspension with double wishbones, pushrod-actuated coil springs and shock absorbers, and four-wheel ventilated, anti-lock carbon-fibre disc brakes.
