Mercedes CLK-55 AMG.

The Mercedes Benz CLK 55 AMG is a super car for the normal folks that can find one! At under $20,000, you may be able to find one that fits your budget. But be prepared to hunt, less than 3500 were ever built.

What is this car?
With less than 3500 ever made, the Mercedes CLK-55 AMG is the "HOT" version of the C-208 and C-209 automobile released by Mercedes Benz. The in house pro tuning shop, AMG, took the 02, C-208 chassis, with a 5.5 liter hand made V-8 (the builder even signs his/the engine), and turned a nice car into a monster. As the second generation CLKs, based on the C-209 Chassis, the 2003-2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK is a truely postless 2 door, 4 seat coupe with the muscle to match most. The basic CLK up and to the right was photographed in Washington, D.C., USA. The AMG below shows the difference!



The generation 2 CLK 55 AMG features a 5.4 liter, 24-valve Single Overhead Cam V8 engine, attached to a 5-speed automatic transmission. The base price is US$70,000 for the coupé and US$87,000 for the cabriolet. The CLK55 AMG coupé was dropped in North America after the 2005 model year, though the cabriolet is still offered. The CLK55 was replaced by the CLK63 for 2007.

The CLK63 AMG features a 6.2L V8 with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Available in both Coupé and Cabriolet, the CLK63 boasts 481 hp (354 kW) and 465 ft·lb (630 newton m) of torque. Compared to its predecessor the CLK63 has 31% more power and 23% more torque. The CLK63 was used as the safety car in Formula One. It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds.
