With styling cues from the W210 lineup, the CLK55 affords those looking for young classic AMG access the luxury of doing so with iconic AMG flare and arguably the best power plant to come out of Affalterbach since the 6.0 M117. The 208 AMG's are following the footsteps of the W210 and W202 line up with rising values thanks to a growing desirability. While big screens, small displacement, and overwhelmingly complicated tech suffocates the modern day automobile, the early 2000's still offer gems like this CLK55 which provide enthusiasts with classic design, mechanical reliability, and a more analog/connected driving experience with little compromise. According to the complete A208 CLK55 Cabriolet registry, this example is one of just 21 examples finished in a unique Firemist Red Metallic (548), making it a rare find amongst an already limited run of production. With just 48k miles on the odometer and extensive recent maintenance, this example is sure to serve its lucky new owner well for many years to come.
