The Appeal

When Mercedes-Benz decided to challenge BMW's M sports cars, it did so with the elegance and quality typical of the three-pointed star. But elegance and refinement combined, less typically, with extreme performance and a truly menacing aura.
Equipped with the powerful M113 V8 with its unmistakable sound, the new AMGs were brutally fast when they had to be, but equally capable of being relaxed and comfortable when required.
This attractive CLK55 C208 is a perfect example. One of only a few thousand produced, it offers its occupants very comprehensive equipment that includes a glass sunroof, full leather interior and the innovative COMAND navigation and entertainment system. It also pays homage to earlier Mercedes cars with stylish details such as the wood trim on the dashboard.
Under the bonnet the atmosphere is less relaxed, with a 5.4-litre version with 345 hp of the famous M113 engine. It is mated to an automatic transmission that reflects this car's dual personality - it can be a relaxed automatic or be used in the more engaging sequential setting.
This beautiful CLK55 comes to the market in good condition with regular servicing. Rare and versatile, this is a car for real drivers.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
€0 to €9,999 €100.00
€10,000 to €49,999 €250.00
€50,000 to €99,999 €500.00
€100,000 + €1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
