Given the engine's dynamic power delivery, the five-speed automatic transmission with AMG-Speedshift proves to be an ideal partner. Manual mode ("M") gives the driver the option of using F1-style gearshift paddles on the steering wheel. In addition, the gears are not changed automatically in this mode, meaning that the driver can utilise the immense pulling power to the full, even with the throttle wide open. Other AMG-Speedshift functions that really come into their own during sporty driving include automatic active downshifting, 'shift to ideal gear', torque converter lockup in any gear and shorter, more spontaneous gear changes.

Even at just a brief glance, there is no mistaking the position of the CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet as a top-of-the-range sports model. The captivating design of the open-air four-seater is made even more dynamic by the powerful AMG bodystyling: the prominent front apron with large cooling air openings and integrated fog lamps, as well as the side skirts and rear apron, harmoniously blend in with the overall design. At the rear, the chromed oval tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system provide another visual highlight. Furthermore their impressive V8 sound serves to emphasise the sporty dynamism of the car. The spoiler lip on the boot lid reduces the lift acting on the rear axle by over 50 percent. What's more, the CLK Cabriolet from Mercedes-AMG posts an unrivalled cd figure of 0.30.

Sporting prowess and exclusivity abound in the interior of the CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet. AMG door sills, AMG aluminium trim with decorative chrome strips, an instrument cluster with white dials and the ergonomically designed AMG sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles all combine to create an extraordinary ambience without compromising on practicality. The electrically adjustable, heated AMG sports seats with multicontour function are available with single-tone leather upholstery or a two-tone nappa nubuck leather combination.
