The CLK Black Sequence — AMG at its Purest?


There are a few of us who eagerly await the launch of every new era of the most recent and biggest supercars, and there are a few of us who look extra to the previous for our thrills. SCD founder Adam is the latter, with a craving for automobiles which stir the soul with their character slightly than assault the senses with their outright pace. Maybe as nice an enchantment as that although, is the joy and nostalgia of pursuing automobiles you yearned for however couldn’t afford in years passed by.

A kind of automobiles for Adam was launched in 2007, three years earlier than the start of SCD, the Mercedes CLK AMG Black Sequence, and with the assistance of JBR Capital, a shocking white instance has joined the SCD fleet after 16 years of craving!

Solely 120 right-hand-drive CLK Black Sequence have been produced from a complete manufacturing run of 500 automobiles which have been solely accessible in black, white, silver or crimson. Given their rarity, we really feel they’re nonetheless massively undervalued particularly in comparison with its CLK DTM brother which has doubled in value over the previous couple of years.

It’s a type of ‘if you understand, you understand’ form of automobiles we petrolheads love. Most individuals gained’t bat an eyelid, however in case you cross paths with one other automotive particular person on the petrol station, you’d higher be prepared for a slightly prolonged chat after they ask, “Is {that a} Black Sequence?!”.

It’s a good guess that even AMG’s present entry-level A45 S would lap a monitor faster than the CLK Black Sequence, and its computerized gearbox takes a little bit of persistence, 500bhp was a really hefty quantity for its day which nonetheless provides a strong shove within the again, and there’s no substitute for the thunderous soundtrack from that legendary 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8.

Evo Journal stated that the CLK Black Sequence is “one of the crucial thrilling automobiles to ever put on a Mercedes badge, and is AMG at its purest”. We couldn’t agree extra, and we are able to solely see values going a technique because it beneficial properties the popularity it deserves. In actual fact, residuals are already so sturdy that JBR structured an interest-only settlement to benefit from that, making such an iconic automotive a surprisingly reasonably priced funding.

Look out for it at occasions and kind an orderly queue for a drive!
