The equipment of the Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet is also orientated on the racetrack: AMG sports bucket seatings with Leather/alcantara upholstery ensure optimal lateral support: The oval AMG racing helm with suede covering and the AMG instrument cluster with 360 km/h speedometer scale lend the dashboard an unmistakable motorsport touch.
Alone the look layout of the new Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet shows the highest performance at the level of thoroughbred racing vehicles and attests to the transfer of top-class technology from motorsport: the deep-drawn front apron with big air inlets, striking wheel arch flaring, 19 and 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels and the back end in diffusor-look are reminiscent of the successful CLK racing touring vehicles from the German Touring Masters. Numerous body elements are made of the high-strength and particularly light carbon fibre composite fabric CRP, i.e. the bonnet, doors, front wings, back wheel arches flaring, the front and back aprons as well as the back aerofoil.
