2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK500 2dr Coupe (5.0L 8cyl 5A)
The CLK500 is really in a class of its
own. It more luxurious and comfortable
that the 3 series and it is not seen at
every corner or around every block. It
doesn't punish the driver over rough
road yet it is able to still provide an
adrenaline rush when you push down on
the accelerator firmly. Also insofar as
styling I believe it looks
authoritative without looking overly
designed or gimmicky. The seats are
very comfortable, the climate control
is easy to operate and the sound system
is really rather pleasant sounding.
The low tone exhaust system reminds you
in an non-intrusive way that a muscular
V8 is awaiting your need for speed.
Comprehensive list of creature comforts
A bit better gas mileage would be a
good thing - - in seems that Jaguar is
able to product a V8 of similar power
with no gas guzzler penalty. But in
the long run engine reliability and
performance would prove more imporant
to me that fuel savings.
