Vehicle Damage & Description

SWS Classic Present this lovely Mercedes-Benz CLK 500 5.0 V8
Please go to our website - google SWS International for over 90 photos!

A gorgeous shape of the era, this CLK, in Obsidian Black, is fitted from factory with the famous 5.0 V8 Mercedes engine, renowned for its refinement and reliabilty. This elegance model comes standard with a raft of extra's including heated, leather upholstry, navigation, sunroof, front and rear parking sensors and diamond cut alloy wheels.

A low mileage example like this is becoming harder to find, cheaper to maintain than the glourious 55 Amg and as this particular car shows, more likely to be found in well cared for condition.

The bodywork is in overall lovely condition, there are 3 minor dents on the passenger side of the car, all could be repaired using a dentmaster technician. There is a minor 'scuff' to the front near side bumper edge and the same to the off side rear which we have photographed. There is also a small scratch on the rear quarter panel which has been rectified using a correction paint stick. There are some minor stone chips to the bonnet. But once again it is in fantastic condition overall.

The trim is in very good condition with no perferations or bolster wear however some minor items could be improved. The trim colour in places, has lost it's charm as you will see looking through the photographs. The drivers door card has a crack on the edge of the trim and the rear headrests have some flaking. All of these items can be easily rectified with reconilisation or feed and dye techniques. The boot floor carpet is missing.

Mechanically, the engine runs beautifully, presenting no warnings lights. The gearbox changes are smooth and as expected of a Mercedes of the era's build quality, it last passed it's MOT in November 2020 at 61,514 miles. Throughout it's MOT history it has mostly been advisory free and a testiment to the mechanical care it has received.

Electrically, everything works as it should without faults that we can find.

The Original book pack, two keys, original service book and certificate of conformity are all present. The service book has been stamped on time up to 47,354 miles and then invoices from one garage that have looked after the car up until last year. The car has been extensively serviced every year.

In summary, this is a lovely example of a seldom ordered 5.0 CLK. Fantastic reliable motoring, with effortless driving and 302 bhp to take hold of! A great colour combination and a move away from the more common darker trim options.
