2008 Mercedes CLK 63 Black Series Coupe

Stock Number 2362

Now available from CPR Classic is this immaculate and very rare CLK 63 AMG Black Series coupe. This car is the product of Mercedes-Benz entering the European DTM series in 2008 and served as a “road-going” version of the DTM racecar to legally homologate the racing version to compete.

In order to legally enter, a manufacturer must “homologate” a chassis which means it must show the officials that the race car stems from a production car, not just a prototype. Per the rules, the minimum homologation production is 500 units, worldwide.

Thus came the development and production of the CLK63 AMG Black Series. With only 500 units produced, the Black Series cars were very, very special. They incorporated AMG’s normally aspirated 6.3L V8 that produced an astonishing 510hp and mated it to a 7-speed gearbox. This engine was hand built by one AMG technician using only the finest racing-derived components. The car also received a high-flow AMG exhaust that sounds unbelievable on-throttle.

The CLK63 Black also received special 6-piston front calipers, 4-piston rear calipers with cross-drilled and vented rotors front and back. The wheels are also unique to this car and are forged monoblock aluminum. The car has unique factory wide bodywork with special, DTM-inspired, flared front and rear fenders, special flared rockers, a rear carbon fiber diffuser, and a special front bumper incorporating carbon air vents and an integrated splitter. The car is also equipped with a rear limited-slip differential and differential cooling system.

Mercedes outfitted the CLK Black’s interior beautifully with a heavily-sculpted rear seat delete, Black Series sport bucket seats, special AMG paddle shifting system with upgraded shift software, adjustable suspension, and a Black-Series-only, DTM-inspired sport steering wheel with a flat bottom. These cars were offered in Black, Obsidian Black, Iridium Silver, Mars Red, and Arctic White. Several cars were painted to sample. Black and Iridium Silver were the most common colors with nearly 85% of all cars in these two colors.

This example is one of the last AMG Black Series cars produced for 2008. It is one of only 349 CLK63 AMG Black Series cars brought into the U.S. and one of only 34 Arctic White cars in the country. With only 15,100 original miles, it is a stunning example of an exceedingly rare Mercedes-Benz.

This is one of the lowest-mileage, pristine CLK Black Series cars available. Arctic White, as mentioned, is one of the rarest colors and in our opinion accents the beautiful and aggressive bodywork this car received. If you are looking for a very fast, highly collectible Mercedes-Benz, call today!
