Believed to have been garage-kept throughout its lifetime, the Brilliant Silver Metallic finish on this CLK is said to be in excellent condition except for a few minor cosmetic imperfections as depicted in the photo gallery. Ceramic coating was applied over the full exterior within the last 2 years and the convertible top is said to appear as new.

A factory claimed 363 HP is sent to the rear wheels through a robust type-722.6 5-speed automatic gearbox derived from the V12 S-class models. Other performance features unseen on the standard CLK-class include a stiffened independent suspension with larger stabilizer bars and larger disc brakes on all four corners. Standard features include an electronic stability program (ESP) and anti-lock braking system (ABS).
