Mercedes-Benz CLK 500

The CLK 500 is just another example of a great car to come from the joint ventures of Mercedes- Benz and AMG. Each model seats four, comfortably or not depending on size, and includes an all-leather interior with burl walnut trim. This vehicle looks very snazzy on the interior and is sure to make the driver feel as if they are truly riding in style. While the CLK 320 and CLK 500 come with 17 inch (432 mm) alloy wheels, the CLK 55 AMG sports 18 inch (457 mm) wheels. However, the first two models still command road presence even with the smaller wheels and they still look incredible. The convertibles have a remote-operated automatic soft-top and sensor-controlled roll bars. This gives the riders a sense of safety while remaining to ride in style. Since 2000, all come standard with a Tele Aid emergency assistance system, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, 10-way power front seats and rain-sensing windshield wipers. These are the true details of luxury when the driver does not even have to turn on his or her own windshield wipers. Further, seven-channel digital surround sound comes standard. And for the buyer who likes options, a Keyless Go system, navigation system, Parktronic system, and bi-xenon HID headlamps are all available as options. Under the hood, the CLK500 features a 5.0 L, 24-valve SOHC V8 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The base price is a little up there at $54,600 for the coupe and $62,200 for the convertible. The CLK 500 was later replaced by the CLK 550 for the 2007 model year. The CLK 500 was a great model and hopefully the CLK 550 can live up to the legacy of the fun to drive CLK 500. This will be though a tough cookie to beat, although certainly, Benz will do it.
