The Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class C209/A209 truly signifies the epitome of luxury and sportiness from the period of 2002 to 2005. Created under the AMG Cabriolet 2-Doors series, the CLK 55 AT trim of this car, in particular, harmoniously combines the traits of a robust yet elegant cabriolet. Housing seating for four, this convertible ensures a performance-packed drive without compromising comfort. With a multi-point fuel injection system, the trim offers an enhanced air-fuel mixture leading to efficient combustion while not undermining power or performance.
Exemplifying sheer power, this cabriolet houses a V-type engine configuration with eight cylinders – an engine layout predominantly used in high-performance vehicles. Each cylinder features three valves to maximize power output while minimizing fuel consumption. The 3.783-inch Cylinder Bore paired with a 3.588 mm stroke, efficiently combusts the air-fuel mixture, thereby producing greater engine power. The peak power of 367hp is developed at 5750rpm, and the maximum torque is derived at 4000 rpm, making the CLK a performance powerhouse.
The CLK 55 AT is engineered with a rear-wheel drivetrain, a common feature in many sports and luxury cars for its exceptional handling abilities. The vehicle offers a five-speed automatic transmission system, providing seamless and intuitive gear changes. The fuel tank capacity is 16 gallons, which is generous, and the car runs on a 95 fuel grade. It has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 155mph. Lastly, the back suspension system comprises multi-wishbone, dampers, and helical springs that ensure a smoother ride over rough terrains while maintaining control and stability at high speeds.
