This is how a big, fast car is supposed to driven! OK, not exactly like this, as the dirt will undoubtedly ruin it on many different levels. But the thrashing and hard driving, that’s how you treat a super car. And Mercedes CLK Black Series certainly is a super car, even if it looks like a benign coupe.
The guys at DLMphotos went desert hooning in a Mercedes CLK Black Series, and managed to capture the action so close you can feel the grit stripping the car off its paint. It’s actually a wrap, but still. The guys also ate a lot of dust during this shoot, but it was worth it.
The Mercedes CLK Black Series is one of the most legendary cars AMG has ever built. Based on the previous-generation CLK – now known as the E-Coupe – the car features different axles, wider tracks, trick suspension and differential, and above all, a 507 horsepower naturally-aspirated 6.2 liter V8 engine. It is the most fun you can have with internal combustion. Jeremy Clarkson daily drives a CLK Black since it was launched. That is the highest praise a car can get.
