Lot 272 - 1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK 230 Kompressor
|Odometer reading||62,450 miles|
|Result||Sold - £1,792|
The Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class is a former series of mid-size or entry-level luxury coupés and convertibles produced between 1997 and 2010. Although its design and styling was derived from the E-Class, the mechanical underpinnings were based on the smaller C-Class and was positioned between the CLC-Class and CL-Class. The CLK introduced a new market niche for Mercedes-Benz. Although it used components from the E-Class, its aesthetics were based on the E-Class but it had a specification level higher than the E-Class even though it was in fact based on the less expensive C-Class platform. There were two versions were initially available, the four-cylinder CLK 200 and a four-cylinder supercharged CLK 230 Kompressor.
This lovely example is presented in dark metallic blue with grey leather interior, both of which are in wonderful condition considering its age. As well as air conditioning, walnut door cappings and dashboard, this low mileage car has the advantage of the previous owner owning it from when it was only two months old right up until 2019 when the present vendor took ownership. This very sought after model is presented in probably the most desirable colour combination and comes with a MoT test certificate valid until February 2020. Offered at no reserve, this is true value for money considering its original cost. Despite the badge on the boot lid depicting 320, it is a 230 Kompressor.
