The HKS CLK was not sold officially outside of Japan, so availability is scarce. Its not listed in any Tamiya catalog but Yes - it WAS made...


Body is a faithful replica of the racing Mercedes that HKS built (see also their HKS Altezza TRB001!!). Note this shell is not shared with any of the other two 'CLK DTM' (both old & new styles) that Tamiya has on their TL01/LA chassis, it is a unique molding. Clear shell comes with a graphite-pattern-printed molding for the rear wing and rear fenders.


Chassis is pure TA04R with all the fruit, similar to the TA04R chassis kit or Altezza TRB001. And if anyone is wondering about the 'TAMIYA' logo on the front diffuser... Yes, its there on the REAL CAR too!! (now doing its rounds on the car show circuit)


Note also there is NO unique manual for this kit. Instructions in the box consists of the TA04R kit's booklet, and a separate sheet for the bodyset. [by WillyChang]
