Mercedes to auction DTM racer for charity

If you're a fan of Mercedes supercars like the CLK DTM and the CLK AMG Black Series, and were intrigued by Sauber's upcoming auction of retired F1 cars, you'll love this. Mercedes-Benz, which usually holds on to its retired race cars, is preparing to auction off one (yeah, just one) of its DTM cars. The vehicle in question is the AMG C-Class racer in which Gary Paffett took the checkered flag last year in Oschersleben.

With an opening bid set at €300,000, the car will be sold to the highest bidder on April 4 by Christie's auction house to raise money for social sports projects for youth, funded by sponsor Laureus' "Sport for Good" foundation.
