In keeping with many of the other Mercedes 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 exuded exclusivity. Topping the new CLK range was a V8 model that delivered performance on a par with a typical sports car; the CLK 55 AMG produced an impressive 342hp that could propel this stylish sports coupé 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 light alloy wheels and the AMG exhaust system with twin tailpipes.
Presented in metallic Jasper Blue with contrasting Amaretta Nappa leather, this example comes loaded with the usual Mercedes-Benz options including integrated navigation system, parktronic parking assistance, electric heated multi contour front memory seats, Harman Kardon surround system and bi-xenon headlamps. Importantly, we are informed, this CLK 55 has a full service history and has recently had a lifetime guarantee exhaust fitted as well as four new Pirelli P Zero tyres and a brake service that included new rear brake calipers. This fabulous example offers enough performance to challenge any of its contemporaries, yet still represents outstanding value in today's market.
