It's all about the hoursepower

2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK55 AMG 2dr Cabriolet (5.4L 8cyl 5A)


This is the most fun car I've ever driven. When I went to trade in my 911 Porsche for a more practical car, I thought I would have to say good-bye to speed. This car effortlessly leaves everyone else in my dust. My office is next to an exotic car dealership. I love the looks of people who just plunked down over $100K, and didn't get nearly the car I did. This car never breaks a sweat as you go from a stop to highway speeds in a blink of an eye.

Best Features

Acceleration, handling, brakes, the semi-automatic transmission, and the ragtop.

Worst Features

There are a few reliability issues to address, the gas mileage is worse than a SUV, there is a large blind spot for the driver, and the car could use a better sound system.
