To be sure you access all the more than 35 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to the CLK's accident-and-damage-free Carfax history report, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Mercedes CLK55 AMG: The quickest Benz ever sold in America. �€" Car and Driver, November 2000 Car and Driver's rave review continued: Of the (three) CLK models, the CLK55 is easily the most interesting, as it will likely be the quickest AMG model ever sold in America. Equipped with essentially the same engine as the E55 -- with 342 horses instead of 349, due to a tighter exhaust system -- and about 300 fewer pounds, the CLK will reportedly rip to 60 mph in just under five seconds flat. As is typical with the AMG models, the CLK55 receives numerous other performance enhancements to complement the powerful hand-built-by-AMG V-8, which is 67 horses racier than the engine in the CLK430. The five-speed automatic transmission is based on the heavy-duty gearbox used in the V-12 S-class models. And it is coupled to a reinforced differential with a beefy driveshaft four inches in diameter. Larger-diameter and thicker vented brake rotors, squeezed by twin-piston calipers, increase stopping ability to match the power boost. The springs, shocks, and anti-roll bars are also firmer, but interestingly enough, wheel and tire sizes are the same as on the CLK430, which is already equipped with 17-inch AMG wheels -- 7.5 inches wide in front and 8.5 inches in the rear. On the track, the AMG CLK was agile, responsive, and extremely quick. Its steering is so linear that you carve your desired lines through the corners precisely without need for great concentration and constant corrections. Off the track, the CLK55 remains as practical as its less powerful stablemates. The rear seat is large enough for adults during short urban trips. The trunk space is generous, and the interior is comfortable and well finished. Offered here is a 2002 Mercedes-Benz CK55 AMG Cabriolet in excellent overall condition showing 120,463 miles, or roughly 6,000 miles per-year on average since new. The Obsidian Black Metallic paint remains in excellent condition overall, a tribute to Mercedes' legendary paint technology. The power-operated black fabric soft top shows no rips, tears, or significant wear indications. Body panels show no dents, scrapes, or noteworthy scratches. Cabin glass, trim, badging, and all lighting lenses are free of damage. As important as its current condition, the CLK has benefitted from very consistent Mercedes-dealer-performed service over the course of its life, all in Michigan. The special Mercedes Designo Anthracite, leather-trimmed interior shows little wear. Dashboard, console, seating surfaces, instruments and automatic-transmission controls all display nearly new surfaces. Even the steering wheel and audio controls show only light indications of use. The car's engine compartment is spotlessly clean. The truly exceptional condition of this 2002 Mercedes-Benz CK55 AMG Cabriolet is faithfully presented from every angle (including from below) in the more than 35 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available at the GarageKeptMotors site. That said, we always encourage in-person, up-close inspections by interested parties at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. We ask only that advance appointments be made by phone or email so that we can devote our full attention to our visitors and this very special automobile. Our showroom is not ope
