Occasionally the opportunity is presented to get the good life at a great price. This 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG Convertible is a loaded luxury machine that also happens to have a hand-crafted 362 horsepower V8 under the hood.
We all know true AMG cars are speedy machines, and the CLK55 was known from being one of the quickest Benzs in its day. This convertible shows off its added sportiness in areas like the more aggressive front facial and a subtly integrated spoiler on the trunk. Plus, those cool 17-inch wheels have AMG center caps, and the gunmetal gray looks terrific against the factory black. And we especially love how the black convertible top has a sleek fit that gives hit of some of that pillarlesss hardtop look we like on the coupe version.
The black leather inside means this was born an ultra-desirable triple-black car (paint, roof, and interior.) The condition of everything from the special AMG bucket seats to the carpeting reminds you that a high-end Mercedes-Benz gets treated with quality care. It's loaded with the best features, like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual front airbags, side airbags, ABS, cruise control, and power front seats. The top is a nicely insulated unit, and when you take it down, automatic A/C climate control and heated front seats allow you to still keep the ideal temperature. Even the rear seats are quite handy and have rear vents to keep everyone comfortable. And more than just loaded, there are the right touches that remind you that a Mercedes remains at the forefront of technology. That's why this car has touchscreen infotainment system that runs the stereo, Bluetooth, satellite navigation, and back-up camera.
The CLK55 is a true German-style muscle car. They took the largest engine in the larger E-class and put it in the lighter CLK. And because this is a true AMG car, the 5.4-liter V8 is a hand-crafted powerhouse built by a true professional technician (they even leave their personal stamp right on top of the motor to prove it!) We're also told that this special motor has been under the care of a top-level Mercedes mechanic to help it uphold the quality and performance you expect from a Mercedes AMG. This fuel-injected 362 horsepower package is quite versatile. The five-speed transmission offers paddle shifts for total control, or you can just let the automatic do it for you with easy overdrive comfort. AMG specially tunes the fully-independent suspension for performance, but this also never loses the luxurious Mercedes feel. Add in power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and Michelin performance tires, and this you'll instantly be reminded of why three-little letters (A-M-G) make all the difference.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service manuals. This is an all-black Mercedes droptop with serious AMG power. And since the price is within reach, you know it's time to call today!
