    Has anyone made a Mercedes CLK GTR kit?

    Has anyone made a kit of this, and if not why not?

    Seems using a cheap 1998 CLK donor should make an awesome supercar...the only thing it needs is a new front end and and trunk, and you can even use the stock headlights tailights and grille! Just needs someone with some fiberglass talent to create the front and rear panels (leaving the passenger compartment/greenhouse stock).

    If no one has made one, are there any builders here up for the challenge?

    those all look like complete rebodies of crappy european econocars.

    Im talking about just a reskin put on a REAL CLK mercedes. keeping the frame, interior etc all intact and 100% Mercedes. Basically all you would do is unbolt the bumpers trunk, hood and fenders and put on custom pieces, reskin the doors with bonded panels, and be done. No cutting/ and still retain 5 passenger seating.

    The greenhouse would not look exact but it seems possible to do much better than these other kits by todays more talented builders with their computer aided software.

    Someone like Orlando M should do this.

    I think the first one looks amazing, and I am sure you can fit that to a CLK with some modification

    weve got all the cad data for the clk gtr, also the porsche gtr lm and the mclaren f1 gtr
    never got round to doing anything more with 2 of them but ican supply complete porsche bodies which use a 911 (996) front bulkhead and inner wings/front suspension with a centre tub stretch (ie as porsche did on the 99 cars before they went to the 2000 carbon tub lemans cars)
    there 18,500 with glass pack and rear spoiler and they are epoxy resin on woven matt bodies not your usual polyuretherne and chopped matt grp panels
