Introduction

Glyn Parry
Professional Consigner

When it comes to performance and luxury, Mercedes-Benz and AMG always know how to hit the spot.

This CLK series is the second generation Mercedes-Benz have launched, following on from the success of the W203 C-class platform. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2002, the new C209 (Coupe) and the A209 (Convertible) were launched 12 months later. Then in 2007 came the CLK 63 AMG, produced for just 2 years. AMG breathed their magic onto the A209 to create the CLK63. This is fitted with the 6.2 litre V8 powerhouse which works with the CLK, to offer high performance, amazing handling, and a soundtrack that can hold its own up there with some of the best sounding cars ever produced.

With the model only produced for 2 years, this is a chance to own something quite special.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned a HPi check on the vehicle.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Glyn after meeting Michael the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

What a car to own and drive and with the roof down, there is nothing better than the sound of the 6.2.

Michael is the second owner of this 2008 Mercedes CLK63 AMG. He purchased the car 2 months ago. This may have been a bit of an impulse buy! After hearing the amazing engine fitted to the CLK63 together with the looks, who would not want to own such a car.

However, after buying the AMG, it was quickly found that it might not have been the best choice for an avid golf player. With the car being a convertible there is less room in the boot, meaning getting your golf clubs in is a bit of an issue. Also, with the luxury black leather, taking the dog out isn't exactly ideal, and this is why the decision has been made to part with the car after such a short time.

Michael will be more than happy to answer any questions you have about the car, in the comments below.

Exterior

Undoubtedly, the Mercedes CLK63 AMG is a beautiful looking car with either the roof up or down.

Wheels and Tyres

The AMG five spoke wheels are finished in black.

There are some slight kerb marks to them which could easily be rectified with a wheel refurbisher.

The tyres are two different makes and have a good amount of tread remaining to the front and rear.

Please see more images of the wheels in the exterior gallery.

Bodywork

It's difficult to believe but this car is now thirteen years old, yet the design still looks as good today as it did back in the day.

Looking from the side profile of the car, both doors look to align as Mercedes intended, along with the bonnet and boot lid. The front bumper on the driver’s side looks to be a little out of alignment by just a few millimeters, towards the front edge where it meets the wing - it's been subject to a previous repair. There is a small split in the rear bumper and on the bumper chrome trim. On the outside of the Mercedes there are a few small age related chips with the driver’s door having some chips to the edge.

The roof is in excellent condition with no damage, other than a few crease marks as you often get with any convertible.

Please take the time to look through the hi-resolution images we have taken for a more detailed look at the exterior.

Paint

There is a small scuff on the driver's wheel arch, but it doesn't look to have damaged the body.

The mirror caps are black, fitted by a previous keeper. The car does come with the original white ones should you wish to refit these.

Again, the images taken are from different angles and reflections to show off the wonderful AMG Mercedes as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. Please take the time to fully assess the condition of the exterior.

Glass and Trim

The windows are in good condition, with no noticeable scratches. The lights around the vehicle look to be in good condition with no splits or cracks in any of the lenses at the time of our visit.

Please view the exterior gallery for more detailed images.

Interior

Nothing but Mercedes-Benz finest quality leather to finish the luxury CLK63 AMG - making it a wonderful place to be.

Seats and Carpets

The electric leather front seats are in very nice condition and working as they should. There is some very slight age related wear to the stitching on the driver’s bolster, but it is not worn away. The leather is in good order.

Into the rear, and the seat doesn’t look to have had much use.

There have always been mats fitted in the car, which has kept the carpets in excellent condition. The driver’s mat does have some wear, but it’s an easy item to replace.

Please see the interior gallery for more hi-resolution images.

Dashboard

The dashboard is in good condition with no scuffs to mention, and the fascia is well presented. When turning the ignition on and starting the car, the relevant lights come on and go off as they should, leaving no warning lights to worry about.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

There is a Mercedes AMG performance steering wheel, which was fitted as an option, and this is working as it should and in nice condition.

Mechanics

Just look at the badges on the car - on the wing 6.3 AMG, and boot lid AMG - enough said!

Engine and Gearbox

The engine bay is well presented, and the underside of the bonnet has a collection of stickers from the garage which has been maintaining the CLK. The 6.2 litre V8 fires up just as it should and sounds..….well, amazing!

Michael reports that the car runs without any issues at all. It pulls like a train, especially when the loud pedal is pressed, and the gear change is nice and smooth

In the video section, you can see and hear the cold starting, and on the road videos.

Suspension and Brakes

The brakes on the Mercedes, Michael reports, are working as they should, bringing the car to a halt in a straight line. The discs look to have plenty of life remaining, with no lip on the edge of the disc.

The suspension feels nice and firm, as you would expect with AMG tuning, and there are no noises reported to come from either corner of the car.

The Drive

Michel describes the car as an exhilarating drive, especially with the roof down and the heated seats on a crisp autumn morning.

The AMG will always turn heads, as hearing it before you see it is quite a common occurrence.

Electrics and Other

From the factory there have been a lot of goodies added for your comfort, such as the ventilated front seats, Parktronic, comand APS, TV Tuner, AMG performance steering wheel and the AMG driver’s package.

There is a fault with one electric mirror which, is reported to need the attention of an auto electrician.

Michael reports that everything else is working just as it should and is happy to answer any questions.

History and Paperwork

Just 2 owners have had the pleasure of the CLK63 AMG - will you be the third?

Although Michael has only had the car for 2 months, he has thoroughly enjoyed his time and would definitely be keeping the car if only golf clubs were shorter.

Two keys are present with the car, and there is a nice history file. This includes main dealer service stamps and invoices, plus other invoices for work carried out by independent specialists in recent years. The most recent was in 2020, where the Mercedes received 2 engine mounts, gearbox mount and a service.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and also actioned an HPi check on the vehicle.
