The Mercedes-Benz CLK Race Car is an infamous hidden car that can be found in Gran Turismo 2. It was originally planned to be available in the game, however, at the time the CLK-GTR was being used under license to the Need for Speed series. Polyphony Digital had then attempted to circumvent this issue by creating a fictional "Race Car" version. Mercedes-Benz did not approve of the modification and requested that it not be released as part of the final product. Interestingly, this car has complete specifications, meaning that it was disabled from use relatively late in development, though it does not have a description page.

AcquisitionEdit

GT2Edit

  • As mentioned before, this car cannot be acquired through normal means, but only via cheat devices. The price as defined in the game files would have been 1,000,000 Credits.

TriviaEdit

  • The real Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM appears in every game of the series since Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport. The real version features entirely different specifications, reflecting the large change between the 1994-1996 and 2000-on DTM regulations.
  • The specifications of the car are very similar to the real-life Mercedes-Benz C-Class DTM '95, which was cut from GT2 earlier in development, potentially to be replaced by the newer but fictional CLK-bodied car.
  • While the car lacks a racing livery, it includes its own nameplate and specifications, which supports the theory of the car's late removal from the game. However, it is still marked as being unusable by AI and lacks any description text, unlike the even later Volkswagen Polo 1.4 16V.
  • While this car has a replay name in the NTSC-J version of the game, in the international versions it is left blank other than the "[R]" symbol, similar to other removed cars that use a blank name or the word 'Delete'.
  • In the Japanese game manual, the car list mentions "Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM2000", which may be intended to refer to this car. Further supporting this theory is the car's internal name, "gmd2r", with "gm" standing for Germany, Mercedes-Benz and "d2" standing for DTM 2000.
