Mercedes-Benz CLK320 Coupe

The Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class is a series of mid-size luxury coupés and convertibles that were produced in two generations. Styling was derived from the E-Class, while the mechanical aspects were borrowed from the C-Class. It is positioned between the CL-Class and the SLK-Class, with the name CLK stemming from the German ‘Coupé Leicht Kompakt’ (or Kurz). In 2009, the CLK name was no longer used and the segment was moved back to E-Class Coupe/Convertible. The inaugural C208/A208 CLK premiered in 1997 and was based on the W202 C-Class released three years prior. The coupé was later replaced by the C209 CLK-Class in 2002, while the cabriolet stayed produced until 2003 when it became the A209 CLK. History The CLK brought a new category to Mercedes-Benz with it using componenets from the E-Class (W210) despite being based on the less expensive C-Class (W202) platform. Therefore, it had a specification level higher than the E-Class. Initially two versions were available; the four-cylinder CLK 200 (136 PS (100 kW; 134 bhp)) and four-cylinder supercharged CLK 230 Kompressor 193-197 PS (142-145 kW; 190-194 bhp). The CLK 320 Coupé, with a 218 PS (160 kW; 215 bhp) 3.2 L V6 engine, was introduced in the 1997 model year. The 1998 CLK GTR FIA GT1 racing car featured a 5.9 L V12 engine and 25 road-going CLK GTRs were constructed. The CLK 320 Cabriolet and the 279 PS (205 kW; 275 bhp), 4.3 L V8-powered CLK 430 arrived in 1999. All models included both coupé and convertible forms. In Europe, the supercharged 200 Kompressor had 193bhp, due to euro2 permissive emission specs. In late 1999, a facelift incorporated improved instrument cluster, steering wheel with radio and display controls, Tiptronic automatic gearbox, revised bumpers, side skirts, and side-view mirror-mounted turn signals.
