The CLK coupé is excellently engineered throughout and boasts a supremely comfortable ride, while the elegant four-seater’s core design is based upon the fine Mercedes-Benz C-Class series. The supercharged 230K and V6 engines offer potent performance, while the 320 and 430 models mark this out as a highly sought-after vehicle.

The CLK coupé is excellently engineered throughout and boasts a supremely comfortable ride, while the elegant four-seater’s core design is based upon the fine Mercedes-Benz C-Class series. The supercharged 230K and V6 engines offer potent performance, while the 320 and 430 models mark this out as a highly sought-after vehicle. There are three original versions available – Sport, Elegance and the top of the range Avantgarde – while the self-explanatory Final Edition version in 2002 concluded the range.

What owners say...

 Self opening boot, brilliant. Heated seats could you ask for anything more.

 Its ride quality is just far superior to that of other cars, for a 1998 model the car was so far ahead of its time, and looked after they dont look out of date at all.
