Motor Trend Video: Ignition Episode 82, Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series

By | September 04, 2013
In this latest installment of Motor Trend's Ignition, Carlos Lago takes the 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series for a ride. Can it defend its Black Series title even after its initial release five years ago? That's just what Lago intends to find out. Because it was originally designed as a pace car for Formula 1 Racing, the 2008 CLK 63 features wide fender flares and carbon fiber fenders and forged wheels, while the rear seats are missing. Rather than being built from the ground up, the Black Series CLK 63 was pieced together to work in a specific way, coming together to create an overall enjoyable ride and confidence behind the wheel. Lago takes it out to the track to test different aspects of its performance. It managed some pretty impressive figures, given that it's powered by a 500 horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 engine. Whether you want to take this out on the road or on the track, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series is fun and easy to drive around, leaving a lasting impression on any who get behind the wheel.
