2008 Mercedes CLK63 Black Series
This 2008 CLK63 Black Series has only 2,985 original miles and is in near perfect condition. This is the perfect car to add to your collection, a true Emerging Collectible that will keep going up in value with only 367 produced for the US. For decades, Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with AMG to create the performance version of their vehicles across the entire model line-up range. From the C-Class to the S-Class, all the subtle differences create vehicles that display hinted aggression, power, authority, and luxury. If you know what an AMG is, you’ll almost always give it a second look. What also helps is the rarity of AMG models, which are far less common than BMW M Power cars.
This is a 2 owner California car bought new at Mercedes-Benz of Oakland Ca, which then made its way down to Newport Beach in 2013 and has been here since. Last service was done at Fletcher Jones Mercedes on 3/01/2016 at 2,810 miles. The car has no paint work or previous damage. This is one of the lowest mileage CLK63 Black Series out there.
Mercedes-Benz has always held a prominent spot in the sport of racing from the DTM series to F1 to even going beyond racing by providing support and pace cars. It was at this point that Mercedes and AMG decided to take their on-track engineering and experience to build the ultimate street car: the Black Series.
The moment you lay eyes on a CLK63 AMG Black Series, you know there’s something special about the car. Perhaps it’s the fact that seeing one will be a rare occurrence considering that only 367 were brought to the United States. This makes the CLK63 AMG Black Series even rarer than a Bugatti Veyron.
If the fender flares don’t catch your attention, then the generous offering of carbon fiber and cooling vents certainly will. Mercedes-Benz and AMG definitely did not skimp out on this area. From the front you will notice carbon fiber cooling ducts along the bumper and continuing back past the wheels showcasing a side vent with 6.3L AMG badging.
The noise that comes out of the CLK63 AMG Black Series is a glorious symphony of V8 music that is derived from a 6.2L V8 that could be found in all AMG models at the time. The Black Series was tuned differently to allow for a bump in horsepower past the 500 HP mark versus the typical 450-475 HP range. All this power is channeled through paddles or shift lever activated 7G-Tronic Speedshift transmission and a limited slip differential. All this is good enough for 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds and a quarter mile time of under 12 seconds.
