The Interior


 • Stunning original interior in overall excellent condition
 • Two-tone blue/black full leather upholstery is in excellent order
 • Carpets and door cards are in supremely fine fettle
 • Genuine Mercedes-Benz floor mats in great condition
 • Switchgear and trim has aged remarkably well
 • Steering wheel and gear lever in fine shape
 • Boot area is very clean and tidy

The interior of this magnificent CLK 55 AMG is in fantastic condition throughout, with swathes of high-quality two-tone leather surrounded by a seemingly unmarked dashboard, centre console and door cards. The wood trim and chrome touches have aged well, too.

All switchgear and most vehicle functions are said to work correctly with the only downsides being some minor visible wear and tear such as on top of the gear lever. Vendor has replaced the electric sunroof motor but has not been tested to date. Driver side seat base is not moving forward and back but all other functions are working correctly.



The Exterior 


 • No known bodywork damage
 • Azurite Blue paintwork in stunning condition with only very minor blemishes to note
 • Wonderful original AMG alloys exhibit very little damage but do have some bubbling from age
 • Lights and glass are in near-perfect condition
 • Chrome radiator and Mercedes badges present very nicely
 • Underside is superb order too, with only very minor surface corrosion to speak of

This is a very desirable factory colour scheme, with Azurite Blue the perfect shade with which to accentuate the beautifully clean lines that typified late 90s/early 2000s Mercedes-Benz.

This particular example presents fabulously well with bright shiny paintwork, glorious AMG alloys and no known significant body or paintwork damage.



The Mechanics


 • The mechanicals are said to be in great shape as a result of the car’s full service history
 • Engine bay is very clean and tidy with no leaks or rattles from the engine itself
 • Sensational V8 engine makes all the right noises whether it’s from a cold start or out on the open road
 • Brakes, steering and suspension components are all working well 



Summary


A very fine example of what is now definitely considered a modern classic. This CLK 55 AMG is in exceptional mechanical and cosmetic condition - all it needs now is a new owner to enjoy everything it has to offer.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

Safe, secure payment process

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

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-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 £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

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.
