The CLK Black Series — AMG at its Purest?


There are a few of us who eagerly await the launch of every new era of the newest and best supercars, and there are a few of us who look extra to the previous for our thrills. SCD founder Adam is the latter, with a craving for vehicles which stir the soul with their character slightly than assault the senses with their outright pace. Maybe as nice an attraction as that although, is the thrill and nostalgia of pursuing vehicles you yearned for however couldn’t afford in years passed by.

A type of vehicles for Adam was launched in 2007, three years earlier than the beginning of SCD, the Mercedes CLK AMG Black Sequence, and with the assistance of JBR Capital, a surprising white instance has joined the SCD fleet after 16 years of craving!

Solely 120 right-hand-drive CLK Black Sequence had been produced from a complete manufacturing run of 500 vehicles which had been solely accessible in black, white, silver or purple. Given their rarity, we really feel they’re nonetheless massively undervalued particularly in comparison with its CLK DTM brother which has doubled in value over the previous couple of years.

It’s a kind of ‘if you realize, you realize’ type of vehicles we petrolheads love. Most individuals gained’t bat an eyelid, however should you cross paths with one other automotive particular person on the petrol station, you’d higher be prepared for a slightly prolonged chat after they ask, “Is {that a} Black Sequence?!”.

It’s a good guess that even AMG’s present entry-level A45 S would lap a monitor faster than the CLK Black Sequence, and its automated gearbox takes a little bit of persistence, 500bhp was a really hefty quantity for its day which nonetheless provides a stable shove within the again, and there’s no substitute for the thunderous soundtrack from that legendary 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8.

Evo Journal stated that the CLK Black Sequence is “one of the crucial thrilling vehicles to ever put on a Mercedes badge, and is AMG at its purest”. We couldn’t agree extra, and we are able to solely see values going a technique because it positive aspects the popularity it deserves. The truth is, residuals are already so sturdy that JBR structured an interest-only settlement to make the most of that, making such an iconic automotive a surprisingly reasonably priced funding.

Look out for it at occasions and type an orderly queue for a drive!
