This exceptional CLK GTR is the ninth of only 25 examples built, of which 20 were coupes. It was first delivered to its original owner Hermann Eschmann in Gummersbach, Germany. Eschmann owned the car until 2005 when it was sold to the former owner and exported to Hong Kong. The car remained overseas in a private collection for 12 years until it was acquired by the current owner and imported into the U.S. Prior to import, the GTR was thoroughly inspected by marque expert Marc Kienle of Kienle Automobiltechnik on 29 March 2017, the report for which is included on file.
His inspection outlines that serial no. 09 remains all original, including its original body, engine, and drivetrain. Furthermore, a comprehensive paint analysis was performed and determined that the GTR wears all of its original factory-applied finish. Though the car was fitted with an aftermarket front belly panel, the original carbon fiber panel was retained and stored for safe keeping to avoid marring during transport and is included. Additionally, the GTR had just been serviced with a new fuel bladder and filters and was showing only 1,439 original km at the time.
