<B>2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK55</B><P>*Warning - Large Pictures!*<P>Very strong resemblance to the C70 from the side. This new (W209) looks much better than the previous version (W208) IMHO, i'd pimp-it fo-sure! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.km77.com/marcas/mercedes/clk_02/55amg/gra/01.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.km77.com/marcas/mercedes/clk_02/55amg/gra/02.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.km77.com/marcas/mercedes/clk_02/55amg/gra/07.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.km77.com/marcas/mercedes/clk_02/55amg/gra/08.jpg"> <P>-Drew

CLK 55 AMG with the automatic, and it's quick, but with a 6-speed in there, it would really haul a$$.<P>I'll take my m5 in black <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>

But I'm looking for more control, more sportiness, and, oh yeah, more fun. That's the stuff that don't come with an automatic, "tiptronic" or not.<P>

Notice the ECC and stereo system is standard Benz issue. <P>This vehicle uses the SLK chassis and the engine is the 3.2-litre, 18 valve, 90-degree V-6 straight from the SLK 320.<P> <IMG SRC="http://osx.wieck.com/pv/WKA/2002/01/03/WKA2002010339409_pv.jpg"> <P>-Drew<P>
