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 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.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

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.

Mercedes Benz G55 AMG Promo Video
Mercedes-Benz secured military contracts for the vehicle in the late 1970s
and offered a civilian version to the public in 1979. Designed to be the
most durable, reliable, and rugged off roader, the G-wagen utilizes three
fully locking differentials (one of the few vehicles sold in the U.S. to
have such, along with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Toyota 80-series Land
Cruiser, Pinzgauer High Mobility All-Terrain Vehicle, and Mercedes-Benz
Unimog). Among the engines offered in the G-Class for the 2004 model year
is a 5.5-litre V8.
Marking its 25th anniversary, the 2005 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG was relaunched
as the G55 Kompressor or G55K and received a Boost in power, thanks to a 5.5-liter,
supercharged V8 developing 469 horsepower (350 kW) and 516
lb•ft (700 N•m). of torque.
The G-Wagen was first offered for sale in 1979 and redesigned in 1990 and
updated in 1997. A new version was expected for 2007, but the new GL-Class
will not replace the G-Wagen and it will continue to be hand-built in Graz,
Austria at an annual production rate of 4,000 to 6,000 units.
The original W460/W461 G-Wagen went onsale for the 1979 model year. It was
offered in two wheelbases and three body styles: A 2-door short-wheelbase
convertible, a 2-door short-wheelbase wagon, and a long-wheelbase 4-door
2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
