For those discerning customers seeking an exhilarating driving experience, Mercedes-Benz offers distinctive, more powerful models through their subsidiary AMG. For those customers seeking something more extreme than even that, AMG offers a range of no-holds-barred performance models via their limited production “Black Series” label.
Examples from this label are immediately recognizable from standard AMG offerings by their extensively modified bodywork, massive brakes, bespoke aero packages, and retrimmed interiors. Black Series cars are extremely limited, and represent the most extreme, distilled performance capable of a Mercedes-Benz chassis without sacrificing cabin amenities, handling capabilities, and driving aids.
This 2008 CLK 63 AMG Black Series is one of just 500 examples produced for the global market during its three-year production run. Clad in a most appropriate color scheme—Black over Anthracite leather with carbon fiber trim—this example was delivered new to Mercedes-Benz of Stevens Creek near San Jose, California and presently shows under 8,100 miles since new.
To give it a significant boost over AMG’s already capable hand-built 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the CLK 63 Black Series powerplant receives an improved engine map which provides 500 horsepower routed to the rear wheels via a seven-speed AMG Speedshift transmission. This example has been further modified by Eurosport of Huntington Beach, California with add-ons including an engine tune, cat-back exhaust, cold air return, and lightweight rear brake rotors. The seller reports that this work cost nearly $15,000 USD when new, with the upgrades adding approximately 25 horsepower over stock.
This exceedingly rare, desirable, and low-mileage CLK 63 AMG Black Series sits at the nexus of extreme performance and daily tractability; it is offered for sale accompanied by a jack, air compressor, lug wrench and tools, an Eurosport rear wing, and stock rear brake rotors.
