The Mercedes Benz CLK500 comes with colossal performance. Powering the sleek coupe is a thundering 5.5 litre V8 engine that gives some beautiful hard-core grunt. The 285 kW output is serious stuff, particularly when joining forces with 530 Nm. This is enough power to send the stylish Merc from 0-100 km/h in a mere six seconds and on to a limited top speed of 250 km/h. The Mercedes Benz CLK500 comes in two models: the CLK 500 Cabriolet and CLK 500 Coupe.
Both the hard-top and convertible versions for the sleek Coupe are impressive to behold. To create the classy Merc, a grafting of the E-Class front end, with its twin oval headlamps, onto a C-Type-size body has created a masterpiece in automotive design.
The Mercedes-Benz CLK500 comes packed with top of the line features and safety systems such as the crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraint. Everyone in the car can sit and relax with “airbags for Africa” present in the front, sides and rear. The tele aid system in the vehicle includes Automatic Collision Notification, Concierge Services, Emergency Response, Roadside Assistance, Security System Notification, Stolen Vehicle Tracking, Remote Unlocking, Reservations, Navigation, and Traffic Information. You can also breathe easily with an air-conditioning system boasting an interior dust and pollen filter that has seperate rear HVAC ducts. Occupants can relax in a cabin ambience fit for a king. Sitting in an interior that is crafted in premium leather, highly voluptuous and ever-so comfortable makes any long trip a pleasure. Sit back and relax with the crystal clear audio system which automatically controls the volume according to the speed of the vehicle. Perhaps it might be needless to say that there is a CD player, an MP3 player and at least 6 speakers. The automatic climate control works superbly to keep all areas inside the cabin a balanced temperature. It functions with a sun sensor and separate driver/front passenger climate controls – this is certainly a welcome asset for those hot and dusty Australian days. The Mercedes Benz CLK500 has remote operated doors, a remote fuel door release and a panic alarm. It has front dual power headrests, rear bucket seats and 60/40 split folding rear seats to fit longer items inside the luggage compartment for those secret weekend get-aways with that someone special in your life. The driver will enjoy the steering wheel mounted controls for the transmission, audio, telephone and instrumentation display. There are many other features, but it would take too long to mention them all.
Lightning quick, awesomely comfortable and supremely sure-footed on the road, this is a car not to let go lightly.
