Mercedes CLK (209) CLK500 ELEGANCE 2006

For sale is my 2006 Mercedes CLK500 Elegance. Being a facelift model, it benefits from the later 5. 5 V8 and 7 speed automatic gearbox.
It has just ticked over 46000 miles, with an extensive and comprehensive service history to document this. Mostly Mercedes main dealer, the rest by independents. Included are all the original handbooks, and period hardback brochure for the CLK range. Supplied with both original keys.
It has a high specification, including full leather, with 3 position electric memory, heated, front seats. Electric windows all round, and electric tilt/ slide glass sunroof. Electrically adjustable steering column for rake and reach (adjusts with memory seat setting). Electric, heated, power folding mirrors. Cruise control, multi function computer. Harmon Kardon Logic 7 stereo, with 6 CD changer, and AUX input in the glovebox. COMAND sat nav, running the most up to date maps available for it, and postcode address input. Front and rear parking sensors.
The interior is in exceptionally good condition, as you would expect for the mileage. Wheels are genuine, factory fitted 18 inch AMG sport alloys, recently refurbished and wearing Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres.
Earlier this year, the suspension received a major overhaul. All upper and lower control arms, front and rear, together with all associated bushes and ball joints were renewed, as well as the front anti roll bar and bushes, droplinks, and suspension top mounts. New H&R springs were fitted, to standard Sport specification. It then had a full geometry set up.
The car drives beautifully, zero knocks or rattles, and feels taut and responsive, with a fabulous ride quality. New brake hard lines were fitted (together with a full flush and renewal of brake fluid), the gearbox oil cooler lines replaced, and the gearbox serviced at the same time.
On the exterior, the paint is in very good condition, with only a couple of very minor marks, in line with a car this age. The Iridium Silver paint has been protected with Xpel paint protection film to prevent any further stone chips, covering the bonnet, front bumper, front wings, headlights, wing mirrors and sills.
The car drives faultlessly. Its effortlessly quick, refined, smooth and very comfortable. Surprisingly economical on a run, and has a large boot (rear seats split and fold 50/ 50). Car is pictured with a private plate that has been removed. It is now back on the original reg, EX56 YCT. MOT until June 2022. ULEZ Compliant.
