|Odometer reading||49,000 miles|
|Estimate||£3,500 - £5,500|
|Result||Sold - £5,040|
The Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class is a mid-size, rear-wheel drive luxury coupé and, while it was based on the W202 and W203 platforms of the C-Class, some styling cues were closer to that of the E-Class. The CLK 320 Coupé was introduced in the 1997 model year, powered by a 3.2 litre V6 engine with the convertible available from 2000. In late 1999 for the 2000 model year, a facelift was launched which incorporated, amongst others, a revised instrument cluster with a bigger multifunction display, steering wheel with controls for the multifunction display and radio, tiptronic automatic gearbox, revised bumpers and new side skirts and side-view mirror-mounted indicators.
This Elegance specification 320 CLK Automatic with the desirable V6 engine is offered in silver with near perfect black leather interior and black hood and is in very good order throughout. Offered with a fully stamped service book, a wealth of old MoT test certificates guaranteeing the mileage, coupled with the current certificate until June 2015 and a valid road fund license until January 2015 this example ticks all the necessary boxes.
In a brief drive with the car we can confirm that it appears to drive as well as it looks and that all the electronic devices all appear to be as they should which is no surprise given its history and mileage equating to fewer than 4,000 a year since new. On further inspection we found the original tool kit intact, newly refurbished alloy wheels and even the original mints given to the buyer from new still with the handbook which would have certainly not aged as well as this lovely convertible has and if you were concerned about the safety of your purchase we are informed that a lifetime tracker contract has also been fitted and would just require switching to your name.
Reliable, comfortable and in fantastic order we feel this is a bargain at this estimate offered with a nice number plate to compliment the car.
