Written by Parkers on

Boasting excellent German engineering throughout and a supremely comfortable ride, the elegantly refined four-seat CLK cabriolet is based on Mercedes' C-Class design. The supercharged 230K and V6 engines offer potent performance, while the 320 and 430 models mark this out as a highly sort-after car. There are three original versions of the CLK cabriolet available – Sport, Elegance and the top of the range Avantgarde – while the appropriately-named 'Final Edition' version was launched at the tail-end of the car's life.
