Top Gear - Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 (SE21E04)
Those flimsy little track toys not doing it for you? How about this then --
it's the 6x6 version of the Mercedes G63 AMG.
Yes, an AMG V8-powered version of the G-Wagon with six-wheel drive. Hammond
is the lucky boy testing it in Dubai.
CLK 55 AMG de-restricted
This Standard CLK 55 AMG Cabrio (de Restricted) hit 187mph on the German
Autobarns and still had a bit left to go!!.
This clip catches it at a mere 165mph following an Audi R8 and Nissan GTR
all having some fun on a wet autobarn heading for the Nurburgring.
Mercedes Benz CLK 55 AMG Promo Video
The Mercedes-Benz W208 coupes and convertibles were produced from 1997 to
2002. They were sold under the CLK-Class model names. The W208 models were
the CLK 200 4-cylinder, CLK230 4-cylinder, CLK 320 V6, CLK 430 V8 and CLK
55 AMG. All models were available in both coupe and cabriolet form.
The CLK introduced a new market niche for Mercedes-Benz. Although the W208
used components from the E-Class and had a specification level higher than
the E-Class, it was in fact based on the C-Class platform.
The CLK features a number of innovative accessories and systems, such as
tow-away protection and an emergency transmission mode.
The W208 was succeeded by the W209, also called the CLK.
The CLK AMG is powered by a hand-assembled 5.5-liter V8 engine. The
hardware list reads like that of a race car: super-stiff forged billet
steel crankshaft, forged, weight-matched connecting rods and pistons,
lightweight AMG-specific camshafts churns inside the pressure-cast aluminum
block of this chain-driven single overhead-cam V8 with two intake and one
Exhaust valves per cylinder, as well
as 16 coils and 16 spark plugs (two spark plugs per cy). Its bore and
stroke are nearly the same, which makes it an ideally balanced engine. The
complex dual-resonance intake manifold with carefully tuned runners helps
create an explosive compression ratio of 10.5:1 which is is mostly what
delivers the healthy 342 horsepower (255 kW) and 376
lb·ft (510 N·m) of torque.
The five-speed automatic transmission is adapted from the gearbox used in
the V-12 S-class models, because that gearbox can take the torque. It is
fully adaptive and electronically-controlled, and is a stronger unit than
that of the CLK430. Also a larger four-bolt driveshaft that's four inches
in diameter connects to a reinforced rear differential to keep all the
extra power under control. Standard traction control keeps wheelspin to a
minimum, while its Electronic Stability Program (ESP) keeps the CLK on its
The standard CLK chassis is used, and while the current version is not
based on the new C-Class platform, the AMG version of the CLK offers some
special undercarriage components. The four-wheel independent suspension is
basically the same as the lesser CLK versions, but AMG fits higher-rated
springs, tighter shock valving, larger diameter anti-roll bars and stiffer
suspension bushings. The resulting firmer, more controlled ride is made
even tighter by its high-performance ZR-rated low-profile tires. The brakes
have been enhanced as well. The huge four-wheel discs are larger and
thicker than the other CLKs, and the rear discs are specially vented to
enhance cooling. An anti-lock braking system is standard, while Brake
Assist applies full braking force in panic stop faster than a driver could. It rides on AMG
Monoblock alloy wheels, 7.5" front and 8.5" rear, shod with 225/45ZR17 and
245/40ZR17 Michelin Pilots.
