Ultra Rare Street Legal AMG CLK GTR to go Under the Hammer at Pebble Beach
If you’ve ever wanted to own a road-legal race car, well here is your chance, provided you’ve got some deep pockets that is. Real deep. The CLK GTR is a road-going race car that Mercedes-Benz produced in the late 90s to comply with racing regulations that required them to make a set number of road-going variants. Only 25 were built, with 20 being coupes and 5 being roadsters. This particular example was number nine of those 25. Also, aside from the name, the CLK GTR had nothing in common with the CLK of the time.

‘BHL 135’ - The Final Factory-Built Lister Costin Can Be Yours For The Right Money
This 1959 Lister Costin isn’t just special because it’s a real classic. It’s not even special because it’s been crowned as the fastest Lister in Europe. Okay, well these things might make it special, but the real icing on the cake is that it’s certified 100-percent original and it’s the very last Lister Costin to have ever been built. It’s also the only Lister Costin in existence to still have its original bonnet, if you can believe that.
Built in 1959 and featuring the chassis No. BHL159, this Costin is ready to race the minute it’s purchased and even includes an FIA Historic Technical Passport. It has been meticulously maintained for the last three decades by leading Jaguar Lister specialists, and in 2019 it won the 2019 Stirling Moss Trophy by finishing more than a lap ahead of the rest of the field. With Chris Ward behind the wheel, this is the same car that finished its lap a second faster than any other car, winning it the title of “the fastest Lister in Europe.” As far as verification goes, it’s history and originality was verified by CKL Developments Ltd.
Part of the verification process was inspecting the chassis, which does include the correct BHL135 stamp on the off-side. The entire chassis was also determined to be original thanks to inspection and verification of the style of welding between chassis parts. Most powertrain details have been left out, but we do know that it features a manual transmission (obviously). According to the listing on Bell Sport & Classic, this car was originally designed to accept a Maserati 450S V-8 – something that was determined by the modified engine mounts. It was originally shipped to the U.S.A. without an engine, however, and it’s believed that it was fitted with a Chevrolet engine at the time. The car now, features a correct Jaguar 3.8-liter race-spec engine that was installed after the car circulated back around to the UK by John and Gary Pearson, the former of which was actually a Mechanic for the Lister factory in the early 1960s.
The real question right now is how much a true classic like this will actually sell for. There’s no price listed by Bell Sport & Classic, so you’ll have to inquire directly if you’re actually interested and have a small fortune you’re willing to part with.
