The Mercedes-Benz W209 cars have been produced since 2002. They are sold under the CLK-Class model names. The W209 is based on the W203 C-Class. It replaced the C208 CLK-Class after 2004 which were the first car to carry the CLK moniker.
The W209 is available in two body styles, a coupe and a cabriolet, and is manufactured with diesel and petrol engines ranging from four cylinder (CLK200) to eight cylinder (CLK500 and CLK63AMG). The cabriolet (Designated with an A, as in CLK500A) features a fully automatic retractable soft top covered by a metal tonneau that can be raised and lowered from outside the vehicle using the key fob.
A W209 CLK 63 AMG DTM "Black Series" was produced as a MY2006 in both a coupe and later cabriolet model. Styling cues were taken from the full race car version for the German Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters racing series. The car includes a wider body, carbon fiber accents, and upgraded suspension.
The CLK is designed to fill the mid-luxury market position for coupes and convertibles. It is Mercedes-Benz's only 4-seat cabriolet. Its direct competitors in the cabriolet market are the Volvo C70 and the Lexus SC430, although it is available with larger engines than any of its direct competitors. The CLK is positioned midway between the BMW 3 series coupe/cabriolet and the 6 series coupe/cabriolet.
The CLK is a superlative vehicle whose handling is exceptionally precise even under extreme cornering, road, and weather conditions, and whose performance is equal to the fastest readily available sports cars on the market. Performance is electronically limited to 135mph in the CLK350 and CLK500 models, and to 155mph in the CLK55 model. An AMG factory option is available for an unrestricted top speed.
The Electronic Stability Control (ESP) and Anti-lock braking system (ABS) are both excellent aids to handling, making such feats as a 90' degree turn on a typical two lane intersection from 50mph possible using simple hard braking and turning with no significant fishtailing. Although the ESP system can be manually turned off, it never actually allows the wheels to spin completely freely. For example, the ESP system makes drifting (intentional high-power fishtailing) impossible without shutting the ESP system off using a factory test protocol that end-users cannot enable.
Each model seats four and in the US this includes an all-leather interior with burl walnut trim. For Europe the models are available as "Elegance" or "Avantgarde" versions, basically Luxury or Sport specification where the Elegance uses Burr Walnut trim and polished alloy wheels the Avantgarde uses alloy trim and chunky wheels. The price and specification for European models is otherwise the same. The 4 cyl. cars wear 16" wheels While the CLK320, CLK350 and CLK500 come with 17 inch (432 mm) alloy wheels, the CLK55 AMG sports 18 inch (457 mm) wheels. The cabriolets have a remote-operated automatic soft-top and sensor-controlled roll bars. Since 2000, all US cars come standard with a Tele Aid emergency assistance system, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, 10-way power front seats and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Seven-channel digital surround sound comes standard. A Keyless Go system, navigation system, Parktronic system, and bi-xenon HID headlamps are all available as options. All models come with four side airbags.European cars differ considerably and are usually specced depending on the buyer's needs.
The cars have a manual sport/comfort mode switch that sets the transmission to start in 2nd gear and shift earlier in comfort mode. The new 7-speed transmission ads about 20% better fuel mileage in real driving conditions over the 5-speed with no loss in performance, although the additional shifting can be noticeable. In the CLK500, at 80mph, the 5-speed transmission runs at about 3000rpm, while the 7-speed runs at about 2200rpm. Both transmissions include automatic best gear finding so that the driver need not keep track of which gear the car is in during performance driving, and in the AMG model, the transmission can be set to stay in the highest possible gear for the best possible performance.
The 5-speed CLK500 gets an average of 15mpg in real city driving conditions, whereas the 7-speed CLK500 get an average of about 18mpg under the same conditions. Both add about 3mpg for highway driving.
The W209 CLK-Class is 2.4 inches (61 mm) longer, 0.7 inches (18 mm) wider and 1.1 inch (28 mm) higher than its predecessor.
In Europe there was also the CLK 200 K (1.8 R4), CLK 220 CDI (2.1 R4 diesel), CLK 240 (2.6 V6), CLK 270 CDI (2.7 R5 diesel), CLK 280 (3.0 V6), CLK 320 CDI (3.0 V6 diesel); (all standard with 6-speed manual transmission, automatic transmission is optional) 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG cabriolet 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG cabriolet.

2008 Mercedes Benz CLK 350 A2464
There's nothing that says, "I enjoy a beautiful day" like owning a
convertible. The feel and excitement of driving around town with the top
down and the wind blowing through your hair is incomparable. But that
feeling is only emphasized when you're driving a Mercedes-Benz, one of the
most renowned automobile manufacturers around. Now you can know exactly how
this feels with your new Diamond Silver Metallic 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK350
Convertible with navigation, Harman Kardon sound system, and iPod
connector! This is a car you're going to enjoy every day. Thanks to its
great features and exceptional performance, there's not much left to
desire. With a responsive 3.5L V6 engine and superior craftsmanship, this
great CLK will keep you grinning from ear to ear. Let's see what else your
new car has to offer.
EXTERIOR: The DIAMOND SILVER METALLIC paint coating the CLK is in excellent
shape and looks beautiful on this car. There are no serious scrapes or
scratches to detract from the shapely curves and design on this automobile.
Under the hood of your Mercedes-Benz you will find a 3.5L V6 engine with
268 horsepower and
258 lb-ft of torque for performance that only lacks in lagging! You'll love
the handling and feel of the car as you take to the open road. Even with
this power, your new ride even gets outstanding gas mileage at 28 highway
and 19 city. The 17" factory wheels are also in good shape. Your new CLK350
features dual power heated mirrors with turn signals. The car's halogen
headlamps will come in handy for driving through the darkest of nights and
the fog lights will help for when the weather gets rough. The black
convertible top is in fabulous shape and works without defect. Your new
Mercedes carries the remainder of the 4 year, 50,000 miles warranty good
until October of 2011.
INTERIOR: We know the exterior looks good, but what about the interior?
From the steering wheel to the rear seats, the lush STONE color scheme does
a great job in making the interior come to life. Complimenting the superb
inlays for the dash, console and doors, the driver and passenger
accommodations offer the comfort of 10-way power ergonomically formed seats
and the carpeting is in great condition. The comfortable leather seats will
help you feel great all the time. The leather carries over to the center of
your control, the steering wheel, which will feel great in your hands. It
features controls for the information display and radio. You will enjoy
hearing your favorite music through the crystal clear upgraded Harman
Kardon sound sound system. It also has AM/FM radio with in-dash CD player
and has a glovebox CD changer. The display will fold down to allow you
access to the CD slot. In the glovebox you will also find a connector for
iPod so you can listen to and control your mp3 device right from your car.
All of this is powered through the central unit, aptly named by Mercedes.
The Mercedes COMMAND navigation system will give you turn-by-turn
directions and maps to help you find all your favorite spots as well as
control many other functions of the car. The automatic dual climate control
will enable you and your passengers to both be comfortable, even at
different temperatures. Further, with just the push of a button you can
view what is playing on the radio, the outside temperature, and other
information right in front of you in the speedometer display! The following
features are waiting for you to enjoy: HomeLink garage door opener system,
rear window defroster, folding center armrest, power windows and locks,
sport shift knob with leather and chrome trim, and cup holders. This
vehicle comes with mats, books, and one key with remote.
SAFETY: Some of the safety features present in your new Mercedes include:
ABS Brakes, driver and front passenger dual stage adaptive airbags, driver
and front passenger head/thorax airbags, 3-point seatbelts, universal LATCH
system, illuminated interior trunk release, and automatic rollover-sensing
pop-up roll bars.
We invite you to enjoy perusing the many pictures included to get to know
the car a bit better. We always try to make sure our cars are as close to
new condition as possible which means any dings removed and light scratches
polished out. Please remember, however, that while this car is in awesome
shape it is pre-owned and will show some signs of wear. Consider the
excellent savings you'll have in purchasing this pre-owned vehicle: the new
MSRP on this car was over $58,000 with its great options! Now you'll save
thousands with this beautiful car. Prepare to enjoy the incomparable
feeling of driving not just any convertible, but your new 2008
Mercedes-Benz CLK350 Convertible!

2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series vs. 2007 BMW M6
If the 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series and 2007 BMW M6 could talk
trash, things would get ugly in a hurry.
The big-bore Benz would snort something about its 465 pound-feet of grunt,
the kind of power that would leave the Bimmer's flame-surfaced sheet metal
in a smoldering pile on the road. The high-strung M6 would make a remark
about the Benz's boy-racer fender flares, silly bodywork vents and
decidedly uncivilized Exhaust note.
