This is a fine example of a well taken care of 21,000 mile 2008 CLK63 Black Series finished in Iridium Silver. This car was just serviced on 2-3-17 about 200 miles ago. This is the perfect car to put in your collection, a true Emerging Collectible that will keep going up in value with only 367 produced for the US. For decades, Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with AMG to create the performance version of their vehicles across the entire model line-up range. From the C-Class to the S-Class, all the subtle differences hinted aggression, power, luxury, and authority. If you know what an AMG was, you'll almost always give it a second look. What also helps is the rarity of AMG models, which is far less common than BMW M Power cars. Mercedes-Benz has always held a prominent spot in the sport of racing from the DTM series to F1 to even going beyond racing by providing support and pace cars. It was at this point that Mercedes and AMG decided to take their on-track engineering and experience to build the ultimate street car the Black Series.



The moment you lay eyes on a CLK63 AMG Black Series, you know there's something quite special about the car. Perhaps its the fact that seeing one will be a rare occurrence considering that only 367 were brought to the United States. This makes the CLK63 AMG Black Series even more rare than a Bugatti Veyron. The first thing you will notice about the CLK63 AMG Black Series are the extremely wide front and rear fender flares, a first of its kind for AMG. Housed under those arches are 19 inch aluminum forged multi-spoke wheels that sport 265/30 and 285/30 tires. With 507 horsepower and 478 lb-ft of torque, you're going to need as much rubber as possible to get traction. Behind the polished wheels are massive 6 piston front and 4 piston rear silver calipers that clamp down on larger composite rotors. If the fender flares don't catch your attention, then the generous offering of carbon fiber and cooling vents certainly will. Mercedes-Benz and AMG definitely did not skimp out on this area.



From the front you will notice carbon fiber cooling ducts along the bumper and continuing back past the wheels showcasing a side vent with 6.3L AMG badging. The rear is one of the best angles of the CLK63 AMG Black Series as it is not just wide, but extremely aggressive looking with a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler and carbon fiber diffuser that channels air into a differential cooler. The noise that comes out of the CLK63 AMG Black Series is a glorious symphony of V8 music that is derived from a 6.2L V8 that couuld be found in all AMG models at the time. The Black Series was tuned differently to allow for a bump in horsepower past the 500 HP mark versus the typical 450-475 HP range.



All this power is channeled through paddles or shift lever activated 7G-Tronic Speedshift transmission and a limited slip differential. All this is good enough for 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds and a quarter mile time of under 12 seconds.
