2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Black Series

Car & Driver News
A close relative to Mercedes' CLK-based safety car that paces Europe's F1 circuit, the CLK63 AMG Black Series is powered by AMG's prolific 6.2-liter V-8 engine, massaged to an even 500 horsepower.
Well, it seems that the feisty mice at AMG have stirred the sleeping giant, somehow gaining approval from the higher-ups to go all the way with its sinister CLK63 AMG Black Series and, more important, sell it in the U.S. Even so, Mercedes says only a couple hundred are destined for our shores.
