The Awakening Theatre at Wynn Las Vegas, which will host one of the most anticipated 2023 events, the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix is the venue for these breathtaking hypercars. “Set against the backdrop of one of the most anticipated events of the year…this auction isn’t just a sale; it’s poised to be an unforgettable event. In the heart of Las Vegas, we’re confident that such a diverse and exotic collection of cars will be unmatched in its excitement,” said Bryon Madsen, President, of RM Sotheby’s.
The event offers collectors a unique opportunity to admire some incredible cars, such as the 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Coupe or a more rare 2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster. Both a Coupe as well as a Roadster will be offered in one auction for the first time, and showcase the finest and most highly engineered racing cars ever built.
The 2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Roadster, which is the rarest of the two cars, was the third ever produced. With a V12 engine delivering 604 horsepower, the car accelerates 0-60 mph within 3.8 second and reaches speeds of over 200 mph. With a mileage of 170 kilometers at the time of cataloging, this stunning piece of engineering has an estimated value of $10,500,000 – $13,000,000.
Equally impressive, the 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR Coupe is the seventh of just 20 examples and was meticulously crafted by AMG’s Special Vehicle Construction Office and HWA AG to homologate their championship-winning FIA GT1 race car. Showing fewer than 4,358 miles at the time of cataloging, it has an estimated value of $8,000,000 – $9,000,000.
“With the inclusion of the iconic CLK GTRs, Lewis Hamilton’s first winning F1 car with Mercedes-AMG Petronas, and an exquisite array of other vehicles, we’re bringing an ensemble to the Wynn Las Vegas that perfectly encapsulates our ambition,” said Bryon Madsen, President, RM Sotheby’s.
