Lot 250 - 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG
|Odometer reading||28,600 miles|
|Estimate||£13,000 - £16,000|
In keeping with many of the other Mercedes-Benz model series, the new CLK-Class, in 2002, was able to bear the three letter mark of sporting prowess, AMG. The package promised superlative power delivery and outstanding handling as well as a list of equipment that positively exuded exclusivity. Topping the new CLK range was a V8 model that delivered performance on a par with a typical sports car; the CLK55 AMG produced an impressive 362bhp which could propel this stylish sports cabriolet to 60mph in just 5.2 seconds. Further features that made the flagship CLK-Class sports model really stand out included a special AMG body styling for the front apron, rear apron and side skirts not to mention the 18" AMG alloy wheels and the AMG exhaust system with twin tail pipes. The CLK55 AMG was a rare and high-performance car powered by a hand assembled, 5.4 litre, V8 engine inscribed by the individual engineer who built the unit. There were only a few hundred cars built each year from 2002 to 2006 and most examples were exported to the USA with only a handful ending up on these shores.
This example is presented in black with black leather interior both of which have been described to be in very good condition by the owner. This convertible ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ comes with satellite navigation, heated electric front seats with memory function, front and rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable steering column, stereo with CD changer and air conditioning with climate control. There are nine services recorded in the service book and with its low mileage, this convertible sports car is presented at a fraction of the price of when it was first manufactured and offers great performance with the all the usual refinements one would expect from this German manufacturer.
