This well-appointed and desirable CLK320 Elegance is finished in opulent Titanite Red Metallic, (Code 567). Strictly garaged from new by two enthusiast owners, the stunning paintwork simply gleams with a deep gloss shine and lustrous finish to really enhance the graceful lines of this genuine four seat tourer. Only the tiniest blemishes can be seen upon close inspection namely very light stone chips to the front and a few marks to the boot lid. The beautifully made trim sections, glass lights and badges are pristine. An exterior showcasing pampered ownership and minimal usage to truly set this example well above the normal offerings. Typical Mercedes Benz indulgence.
Luxury in abundance, a cabin space to overwhelm and delight! Trimmed in beautiful factory optional Quartz Leather, (Code 215), the upholstery is spotlessly clean and virtually flawless. The ergonomically designed seats are beautifully preserved and supremely comfortable. All burr walnut cappings and other leather trim sections are pristine, as is the Orion Grey headlining. Incredibly, the factory plastic coverings have been left on the door sills to preserve them in perfect order, cementing the fact that this car was the owners’ true pride and joy. The functions and controls operate exactly as they should including the LCD display for the trip computer, clock and outside temperature which often fails. The separate LCD display for the gear shift indicator has some failed pixels. Inside the immaculate boot area is the original warning triangle, tool roll, jack and unopened first aid kit, and even factory build stickers, PDI marker sign offs and the dealer supplied circular wheel changing card have been preserved! Impeccable comfort to all occupants with Mercedes-Benz build quality assured.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Mercedes V-engine of 3199cc displacement produces 218bhp at 5700rpm and 310Nm torque at 4600rpm to achieve a top speed of 146mph and 0-62 in 8.3 seconds. The smooth power delivery is this engines strength. The exceptionally clean engine bay remains exactly as Mercedes Benz intended and displays factory plates, stickers and panel stampings that would amaze onlookers when the bonnet is lifted. The 5-speed automatic transmission with Speedtronic cruise control adapts to your driving manner to offer a superb and relaxed driving experience.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Factory standard 16” five spoke style ‘B’ alloys wheels are in excellent order having been refurbished and five matching Pirelli P6000 205/55 R16 tyres have ample tread remaining. The anti-lock braking system with Brake Assist (BAS) offers absolute stopping power to install complete peace of mind.
First registered on 17th April 2000 by Mercedes-Benz of Reading, this example has covered just 42,686 miles with two owners from new. Mr Clifford Meredith purchased the car upon retirement and was the sole keeper for over 19 years until it was acquired by KGF Classic Cars and sold to a Mercedes enthusiast, Mr Thomson. The mileage at point of sale was 39,686 miles and fully documented in the history file with every MOT certificate, every year without fail from the first in 2003. The original service booklet contains the factory build card and option codes and servicing has been carried out in accordance to the Mercedes Benz variable service schedule. There are nine stamped entries in the service book with the last at 41,881 miles in August 2020. All handbooks, radio guides and dealer literature remain in the A5 wallet along with two sets of remote keys plus the master key blade. KGF Classic Cars are privileged to have sourced the car direct from the original owner and found Mr and Mrs Meredith’s love for this car truly heart-warming. We were delighted to have been offered the car again by the second owner and look forward to meeting the lucky third custodian!
