Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

Mercedes AMGs are renowned for their immensely powerful engines and the CLK version is no different. Originally fitted with a 5.4-litre V8, later models have a 6.2-litre V8 (actually badged 63) with a whopping 481bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 4.7 seconds. It's as thunderous behind the wheel as it looks on paper, with immense power available in any gear and a superb sound from the sports-tuned exhaust.

It's available as a coupe - or if you want to be flash - a convertible. It's not cheap to buy or run, but if you want a high performance and useable two-door, the CLK is a strong contender.

 Brilliant on long distance continental runs on good roads, little hard on unsettled roads.

 The deep boot and the flexibility of carrying large loads with the roof down.
