2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

In a single week this summer in San Francisco I saw three CLK63 Black Series, each time giving me pause as I contemplated the huge fenders and amazing V8. Sure, it’s an automatic, but you know a car is obnoxiously awesome if Jeremy Clarkson bought one. Black with chrome wheels wouldn’t be how I’d take it, but with just over 2,000 miles this is a very mint example.

I do love these cars, despite the confusing dissonance in purpose stemming that comes with a heavy car turned racer with an automatic transmission. I strongly hope to own a Benz with one of these 6.2l opera singers some day, mostly to do burnouts and scare children. Black Series will only become more collectible as time marches on, so a creampuff like this one would do well in a collection.

  1. A good friend had one of these when they first came out, and sold it for a premium a month later. THIS is a lot of car for the money and it’s worth every single dollar.
    If I didn’t enjoy the W124 500E as much as I do, I would own this or a 1980’s factory AMG.

  2. had some seat time in one of these, an instructor at an event I was at had one, hustled it around the track, it is a big heavy car, and drives like it. BUT that motor & those brakes are AMAZING!….the auto actually shifts pretty well, never felt I was out of gear.
    I personally like the SL65 more…..tires always smoking and breaking loose…LOL

  3. MDriver,

    I had the same experience instructing in a SLS AMG – what a hoot to drive!

    Here’s what it looked (and SOUNDED) like:
