With the Gran-daddy of stock racing taking place this weekend, I began to wonder if the CLA would ever find itself at Daytona or the NASCAR circuit. Why not, given its drag coefficient (cd) of .23? I did some research and found a post on ChaCha where the average drag coefficient for a formula 1 rave car is about .3 where a NASCAR cd is about .45. Maybe the CLA would not be allowed on the track given its cd of .23, would it? What do you think?

... wuattt?!? :eek:

I'm sure there will be some CLA owners w/ tracking interest, considering the potential of the 2.0T & revised 4Matic along w/ the 45-AMG prowess. It looks to be a very fun HPDE ride for sure! :cool:

Nascar? Not likely. I cant remember the last time a German company was involved. Heck before Toyota i cant remember any foreign carmaker. That being said i am not a nascar fan, so i could be very wrong.

But like Osiris said, i think this car has potential for some fun driving.
