Is this 2002 Mercedes CLK430 the perfect cruiser? Fast, stylish, luxurious, affordable and ready for miles of open-air blacktop, it just might be the Swiss Army knife of premium motoring. The cool thing about a brand like Mercedes, or Swiss Army for that matter, is they're really good at offering everything their clientele could ever want or need. So, looking for a low-mileage luxury car that's exceedingly well-rounded? This awesome CLK should be at the top of your list!
Despite their recent challenges, Mercedes-Benz is a very fortunate automaker. Not only do they have a great lineup of legendary, well-engineered cars, they also have an impeccable reputation for luxury. Spending most of its existence in the hands of one loving owner, and driven roughly a thousand miles per year since its tires hit the asphalt, this triple-silver Benz has been fastidiously maintained since new. The car's ritzy paint, locked safely in a climate-controlled garage when not being paraded, is exceptionally dynamic, and absolutely nails the formal appearance Daimler has spent over 100 years cultivating. Fit and finish is just as you'd expect from something with a three-point star in its grille. And overall, the car is an outstanding piece that features first-class build quality and super-straight style lines!
ENGINEERING TO MATCH
Toss the wide hood and you'll find a highly advanced SOHC V8 that's so smooth it'll make you forget you're even in a car. Displacing a requisite 4.3 liters, the big V8 delivers a quick 275 horsepower and a tough 295 lb./ft. of torque. That torque flows through a 5-speed automatic transmission, which seamlessly streams power to a highway-friendly differential. A well-balanced 4-wheel disc brake system utilizes standard ABS to provide a reliable, drama-free escape from virtually any speed. Fluid power steering keeps turns easily manageable. And a fully independent suspension rolls on handsome AMG Monoblock Wheels, which spin 225/45ZR17 front and 245/40ZR17 rear Michelin Pilot Super Sports.
Inside this fashionable land rocket, you'll find a posh leather interior that's Teutonic luxury at its finest. We're guessing nobody has ever used the car's back seat for much of anything, and the front seats, heated thrones which feature three power-adjustable memory settings, show virtually no wear at all. In front of those seats, a combination of analog and digital gauges is laid out in typical Mercedes fashion, with simple pointers framing a bright Driver Information Center. A simple console centers a simple shifter between controls for the car's power-operated top, power-operated mirrors and power-operated windows. The driver spins a telescoping steering wheel around standard Cruise Control and buttons for the car's Bluetooth system. And dual-zone climate control does a fine job of isolating occupants from the harsher elements of reality.
