Introduction

This 2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG is presented in excellent condition and with interesting early history.

While nowadays you can get an AMG badge on pretty much any Mercedes product, this CLK55 is a very rare model indeed. The W208 AMG was a truly bespoke hot-rod version of Mercedes' midrange coupe at the time, powered by a hand-built 342bhp 5.4-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine.

The moment you fire it up, the deep burble of the custom exhaust tells you this is no ordinary CLK.

General Condition

The car’s bodywork is in excellent condition, finished in Obsidian Black metallic paint, which has a smooth and glossy appearance all around the car.
 
The AMG alloys are in pristine condition having been recently refurbished by renowned specialist Lepsons.
 
The original xenon headlights have been uprated to more powerful HID units. These can of course be easily changed back to factory specification in the future. The rear light clusters have also been upgraded with LED units, and the original lamps are included in the sale.
 
In the cabin, the high-specification Exclusive Graphite / Anthracite AMG leather is in superb condition, with very little wear to speak of. Even the bolsters are in great shape, and the rear seats appear to have been barely used at all. The black leather is accented by Bird’s Eye Maple wood veneers.
 
The electrically-adjustable and heated orthopaedic seats have memory settings for both driver and passenger, and there is also dual-zone climate control. An aftermarket Pioneer head unit providing Bluetooth connectivity has been installed, though the original COMAND system is provided with the car.
 
The boot lining is in very good order, and under the boot floor is the original space-saver spare wheel, as well as a jack and tool roll.

Documentation and Maintenance

Accompanying the car are all of the original books and user guides, as well as the maintenance record, and a detailed history file. The original sales invoice is in the history file as well as a hard back AMG sales brochure.

The last service was less than 2,000 miles ago in April 2019. In 2019 the car had various works including both cam cover gaskets replaced and resealed, crankshaft sensor replaced, fuel filter replaced, rear brake discs and pads, front upper suspension arms, alloy wheels refurbished... This CLK55 also comes with an MOT until December 2020 with no advisory.

Provenance

The car’s first owner was Danish footballer and team manager Morten Wieghorst, who was playing for Scottish Premiership team Celtic at the time. He placed the order with Mercedes-Benz in Denmark, and collected this right-hand drive UK car from the Mercedes-Benz dealer in Glasgow.

It is believed that the car was then owned by FC Stockholm manager Johan Mjallby, who is named on numerous service invoices in the history file. He was also playing at Celtic in the early 2000s alongside Morten Wieghorst.

In total, this CLK55 had 4 owners before my tenure.

Conclusion

Overall the car is in superb condition inside and out. There are obviously some signs of use as it is an 19 year old car, but this is a very well-presented modern classic that is totally ready to drive and enjoy.
