Seller's Notes

2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG VIN: WDBTK76G86T060389 condition: excellent cylinders: 8 cylinders drive: rwd fuel: gas odometer: 62423 paint color: black size: full-size title status: clean transmission: automatic type: convertible This car is extremely rare and hard to find and will not last long at this price. How rare you ask? Only 1500 were made in 2006 and the engines were all built by hand! I am asking NADA Clean Trade in Value for the car. Clean retail is $16,500. The car is immaculate in every way and you talk about faaaast! Hand built engines run stronger and last longer and this is a fact that cannot be disputted. The car is loaded with options and ready to drive anywhere. I am not interested in taking payments or trades this is a straight car for a straight sale. Everything works perfectly and it passed emissions with no problems at all. This is one of the few cars on the market that can take the BMW M3 in head to head competition! This isn't an M3. It's prettier, more comfortable, easier to drive, and slightly quicker. You drive a CLK55 AMG around (windows all down unless it's raining, because it just looks so cool with no B-pillars), whipping its 362 horses to a shiny lather and bending its taut but supple chassis hard into the curves of a mountain road and this car literally feels like it's glued to the road! This and more from Car and Driver who loves this car: https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/mercedes-benz-clk55-amg-short-take-road-test Introduced late in the 2003 model year, this CLK55 AMG is powered by the same 5.4-liter naturally aspirated V-8 that motivated its predecessor, tuned for 20 more horses (freer breathing brings the total to 362), with torque holding at 376 pound-feet. The reinforced five-speed automatic features AMG's Speedshift programming. Sport and comfort modes adapt shift points and firmness to differing driving styles, or press a button for manumatic mode, and the driver can control shifts via the lever or via buttons on the back of the steering wheel. In this mode it remains more manual than most Benzes, upshifting to prevent over-revving but never downshifting at wide-open throttle. Underneath, AMG shocks, springs, and anti-roll bars lock down the body and quicken response rates without punishing the passengers. All this hi-po hardware shoulders a hefty load. Our option-laden example burdened the scales at 3808 pounds. That's 414 pounds up on the CLK's most obvious competitor, the 333-hp BMW M3 (which costs between $48,195 and $60,780). The six-speed manual M3 is geared way shorter than is the automatic CLK, and it revs 1500 rpm higher (to 8000), so both cars shift at nearly the same speeds, leading one to favor the M3 in a drag race. But the CLK's V-8 out-torques the M3's six by 114 pound-feet, and this pulls the CLK ahead of the last M3 we tested by 0.1 second to 60 mph (4.7 seconds) and by 0.4 and 2 mph through the quarter-mile (13.2 at 107 mph). Of course, if you're willing to close the M3-to-CLK55 price gap by $17,798, aftermarket tuner Steve Dinan can close the performance gap (see page 112). It's also worth noting that the new CLK55 runs 0.2 to 0.3 second quicker than its 288-pound-lighter predecessor
