    A cheap set of wheels followed but Albert realized more effort was needed if he was going to set his car apart. The three AMG letters bring two things to mind: Enough room was left behind the deep-dish wheels for 14'' front and The huge four-wheel discs are larger and thicker than the other CLKs, and the rear discs are specially vented to enhance cooling. Now for the uninitiated, these seemingly un- assuming little letters stand for nothing less than electrifying performance.

    Now for the uninitiated, these seemingly un- assuming little letters stand for nothing less than electrifying performance. But, unlike a bolt of lightening that can randomly strike anywhere, anytime, the new Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG produces a more controlled burst of energy, that needs nothing more than a twist of the key to ignite it, and pressure on the accelerator to turn it loose.

    Sparking this AMG supercar is a tightly coiled 5. AMG also tweaks the stock Mercedes dual-resonance magnesium intake manifold to increase airflow. The results of these and other modifications is an impressive horsepower and pound-feet of torque. And only upon closer inspection, which usually comes a little too late for those wannabe red light racers, can you see hints that the CLK55 is more than it appears to be.

    Subtle touches include a small air dam in the front, body-colored skirts that run along the sides, 17 inch AMG Monoblock wheels wrapped in Z-rated rubber, and the most telling of them all, the wonderful AMG acronym on the trunk lid. Along with the ultra-low profile tires, the double wishbone front, multi-link rear suspension has been substantially beefed up with stiffer bushings, larger-ventilated shocks, higher spring rates, and thicker stabilizer bars.

    Especially for those whose preferred modus operandi is point and stomp. Through our low speed slalom the CLK55 remains flat and stable. Side to side transitions are well balanced. Find the proper rhythm with steering and throttle inputs, and the CLK feels like the perfect partner for dancing the tango. Our only complaints are the overly heavy resistance of the recirculating ball steering unit. And a little more steering feedback would be nice. But there was no dissatisfaction with the smooth 5-speed, driver adaptive automatic transmission.

    The Touch Shift manual mode lets you lock it into the gear of your choice, another plus when extreme performance is the top priority.

    When hauling it in from speed is the priority, the large, meaty 4 wheel vented discs governed by ABS and Brake Assist are up to the task. We stopped from 60 in feet with very little nose dive and first rate stability. Our drivers thought the system could be a little more polished, however, as there is an abundance of ABS noise and pedal pulse.

    The AMG-specific sport buckets get way power adjustments with power lumbar supports. A dual zone climate control system and an 8-speaker Bose Premium sound system are standard. A trunk-mounted CD changer is optional. An Easy Access feature glides the bucket seats to the front when the seat backs are tilted forward to allow easier access to the rear.
