The SEC is EVERYTHING you need in life... and AMG spec'd... it's perfection incarnate!! Good luck to the seller and to the lucky winner of this auction!
And congrats to the MB Market. This auction result, and the likely results of the Black Series AMG GT and the SLS auctions are proof positive that this site's creators have achieved the goal of making this the premiere auction site for unobtanium Mercedes-Benz rarities.
Winning bid is roughly 1988 dollar equivalent of $265,000. Probably not too far off from the cost of the whole shebang in '88.
Congrats to the new owner!
One more question... Is the ECU ME2.0 or ME2.8?
Congratulations on the quality of your build and for choosing the perfect platform in which to drop that 55. Three questions, I noticed in the caffeine & octane video that the car had the two-tone interior back when the video was made but that it no longer appears to sport that package. Do you have the two-tone interior available? Is the transmission currently in the car original to the car or did the engine swap include a carryover of the donor vehicle's transmission? Is the A/C system in proper working order?
Thanks for taking the time to reply and good luck with this awesome auction.
What a beautiful color combo! The W208 CLK is, IMHO, one of the most underrated and currently undervalued early 2000's Mercedes Benz automobiles. These were the last of the un-over-electronicized models Mercedes built. I currently own three, so I may be biased... but for sure, the M113 engine and 722.6 transmission would survive a direct nuclear strike and will outlast the next ice age. Pictures never do this body style justice. Good luck with this auction!
