ELECTRIFYING BALANCED CARING It’s an age-old question: Is there a perfect match out there, just for you? One that understands your moods and responds to your needs. An ideal playmate — always exciting, yet never demanding. In your quest for that elusive soulmate, look no further than the 2006 CLK-Class. There’s the instant attraction of its stunning lines — now more breathtaking than ever — in your choice of well-toned pillarless coupes or free-spirited cabriolets. Equally inviting is the embrace of four individually contoured seats in hand-fitted leather, surrounded by rich wood trim. You’ll find enduring passion in the spirited performance of a 268-hp V-6 or the refined rumble of a powerful V-8 — both featuring the industry’s first 7-speed automatic transmission. For the most demanding, there’s the ultimate thrill of a 362-hp AMG V-8. And when you go beyond the looks and heart, the CLK provides the most important feature of all — a soul of innovation that could only come from the manufacturer of the very first automobile, Mercedes-Benz. Your search is over. But the adventure is just beginning. P10 PROTECTIVE INSPIRED P08 P12 P14 P16 SPECIFICATIONS EQUIPMENT P20 P18 CLK 500 Coupe shown at left in Obsidian Black metallic.

There’s no denying the attraction, but who could blame you? The 2006 CLK 350 Coupe and Cabriolet take alluring design to a higher level with aggressive new looks and an equally impressive increase in power, thanks to a 268-hp 3.5-litre DOHC V-6. The pillarless elegance of the CLK 350 Coupe is a testament to passionate engineering, creating a strong roof structure while allowing unencumbered panoramic views. The CLK 350 Cabriolet can give you and three of your closest friends the sun, the stars and gentle breezes at the touch of a button. And while you take a long, lingering look at both the Coupe and Cabriolet, you have to wonder: Is it possible to be in love with only one? a. b. Fresh new design For 2006, every CLK 350 enjoys an aggressive look that includes a new front apron with a larger intake — all the better to feed air to that powerful new-generation V-6 — and a crisp 3-slat grille that’s both sporty and elegant. a. Standard 17" alloy wheels Staggered-width 5-split-spoke 17" alloy wheels are fitted with 225/45 ZR17 high-performance tires up front to help sharpen steering response, and wider 245/40 ZR17 tires1 at the rear to contribute an extra measure of grip when it’s time to put down the power. b. Fully automatic power top Press a button on the Cabriolet’s centre console or its SmartKey remote, and in 17 seconds you’re open for anything. With no manual latches to operate, changing your outlook is truly a one-touch affair. A sculpted, rigid soft-top cover completes the top-down look. With its insulated, triple-layer soft top and heated glass rear window, this is a true year-round convertible. 1 Z-rated tires are optimized for performance driving and may provide reduced ride comfort, increased tire noise, substantially increased treadwear and greater susceptibility to damage compared with H-rated tires. PASSIONATE P04/05 L O V E , H O N O U R AN D CH ERISH T H E R OA D. Many new-car owners enjoy a period where everything is exciting and new. And yet far too soon the honeymoon is over. Not so with the CLK 500. Whether you choose the CLK 500 Coupe or Cabriolet, the aggressive look of AMG-design lower bodywork embracing staggered-width 17" AMG thin-spoke monoblock alloy wheels will keep your heart racing. The feel of a 302-hp V-8 rocketing you to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds1 through the quick shifts of the industry’s first 7-speed automatic never loses its thrill. Steering wheel-mounted fingertip shift buttons add to the fun. With a chassis that eagerly responds to your wishes and 4-wheel disc brakes with 4-piston front calipers with tremendous speed-devouring abilities, even the most familiar roads suddenly become more inviting. And along with this heart-pounding performance, the CLK 500 also remains remarkably refined and poised in any driving situation, making it the perfect long-term partner for those who love to drive. a. b. a. AMG-design front apron Technically, the large front air dam with mesh intakes enhances aerodynamics and gives the powerful 5.0-litre V-8 and front brakes the air they crave. c. b. AMG-design rear spoiler As the aerodynamic lines of the CLK 500 slice through the atmosphere, the colour-keyed rear lip spoiler helps to reduce rear-end lift for improved handling at highway speeds. d. c. Dual polished exhaust tips Hinting at the spirited power beneath the hood, these eye-catching dual polished stainless-steel exhaust tips bring the perfect finishing touch to the CLK 500’s design. 1 CLK 500 Coupe. 6.2 seconds for CLK 500 Cabriolet. Stated rates of acceleration are based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending upon model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load. d. Fingertip shift controls Enjoying the 7-speed automatic transmission is even more fun with steering wheel-mounted shift buttons that let you enjoy the Touch Shift feature without taking your hands off the wheel.

A little private time can be nice, especially when you’re surrounded by the numerous luxuries of the CLK 350. From the supple leather of supportive 10-way power front seats to the reassuring touch of the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, it’s an environment to savour. Enjoy the modern style of aluminium or the warmth of optional hand-polished Burl Walnut wood trim on the doors, dash and console. Become immersed in the depth of the optional 320-watt harman/kardon® digital surround sound system,1 with 12 speakers in the Coupe and 10 in the Cabriolet. The attention to design, luxury and style makes the CLK 350 models among the most personal of coupes and convertibles — with ample interior room to make sure they’re never too personal. To be an object of desire while still commanding respect requires a rare blend of seductive traits and superior intelligence. Inside the CLK 500, you’ll find clever, thoughtful touches like front seats that move up and forward for easy access to the rear seats. The hand-fitted leather upholstery is worth coveting — and it’s complemented by hand-polished Black Ash wood trim and ivory-colour instruments in a matte-chrome surround, or optional Burl Walnut wood with chrome-ringed black gauges. The optional digital surround sound system1 will stir your soul, as will the incredibly responsive 7-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted Touch Shift controls. Advanced digital climate control can help keep you cool while you challenge your favourite road — or it can help keep the cabin warmer for up to 30 minutes after you turn off the car. Whether you view it with cool calculation or in the heat of the moment, the CLK 500 is a seriously irresistible proposition.

Rubber-studded stainless-steel pedals The accelerator, brake and parking brake pedals of the CLK 350 models all feature stylish metal trim dotted with rubber studs for a look that’s gripping in more ways than one. b. Automatic seat-belt presenters Allow us. Each front seat belt features an automatic presenter that glides graciously into action when you close the front door, and then retracts once you’ve buckled up. 10-way power front seats Iconic seat-shaped controls help you easily find your ideal driving position. The 3-position memory even includes your settings for the power steering column and side mirrors. c. Multifunction display A tap of the steering wheel-mounted controls lets you view displays of information, including trip computer data and outside temperature, as well as control and program your vehicle and audio settings. d.

ELECTRIFYING P08/09 A F O R C E O F N AT U R E C R E AT E D B Y I N S TA N T C H E M I S T RY. a. AMG wheels, tires and brakes Massive disc brakes with perforated front rotors and enlarged 6-piston front/4-piston rear AMG calipers give arresting braking performance. Staggered-width 18" double-spoke AMG alloy wheels are equally adept at stopping passersby in their tracks. The first time you see the electrifying CLK, it may strike you like a lightning bolt. With the CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet, the passionate engineers at AMG — the highperformance division of Mercedes-Benz — have created some thunder to go along. A handcrafted 5,439-cc V-8 pumps out 362 hp and 376 lb-ft of torque serves up 100 km/h in a mere 5.4 seconds,1 while AMG SpeedShift™ programming gives the robust 5-speed automatic transmission 35% faster gear changes — easily snapped off by Formula One-style buttons on the steering wheel. As responsive as it is refined, the CLK 55 also features suspension and braking systems calibrated by AMG. The muscular lines of the CLK 55 AMG sit aggressively over 18" wheels carrying 225/40 ZR18 front and 255/35 ZR18 rear high-performance tires,2 while contoured side sills and a functional rear lip spoiler show the wind the quick way around. To the enthusiast, a vehicle like the CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet is more than just appreciated, it’s coveted for the rarity that it is — because lightning seldom strikes the same place twice.

Low-backpressure exhaust Announcing your presence is a deep 362-hp V-8 rumble speaking through a free-flowing dual exhaust system that’s also respectfully subdued at cruising speeds. Two stainless-steel tips make sure you’re seen as well as heard. c. Extensive testing AMG components are tested under brutal conditions, from our labs to the most demanding race circuits in the world. It’s more than just an uncompromising way to build a performance car — it’s the only way for the passionate engineers of AMG. a. b. c. 06-CLKC-XXX pu 06-CLK-024 1 Stated rates of acceleration are based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending upon model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load. 2 AMG 18" wheels and accompanying high-speed-rated tires provide substantially increased treadwear and reduced ride comfort compared to H-rated tires. Serious wheel and tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces or upon encountering road debris or obstacles. CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet. When you’re piloting a car capable of storm-inducing performance, you want to be nowhere else than at the core of comfort and control. The CLK 55 AMG Cabriolet puts it all at your fingertips — literally — starting with manual shift buttons behind the spokes of the leather-wrapped steering wheel. To make sure other parts of your body are equally well supported, the AMG-design heated multicontour sport front seats feature pneumatic side bolsters, dual lumbar supports and thigh supports. Rich Black leather bolsters and soft, sanded nubuck inserts in your choice of Black, Merlot Red or Dark Blue mean luxury need never take a back seat. A feast for the eyes, sand-cast aluminium trim lends a cool, confident presence throughout the cabin, or if you prefer a more traditional look, rich Burl Walnut trim is optional. a. b. c.

The CLK 500 is motivated by a potent 5.0-litre V-8 that puts out 302 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque to rocket you to 100 km/h in as little as 5.9 seconds.1 5,439-cc AMG V- 8 5.0-litre V-8 3.5-litre V-6 3 4 5 6 RPM x1000 PROTECTIVE P12/13 W E ’ V E S P E N T 65 Y E A R S O F O U R L I F E P R E P A R I N G FO R A S I N G L E M O M E N T I N YO U R S . It happens when you least expect it. And even though you can’t predict an accident, you can prepare for one. It’s something Mercedes-Benz has been doing for over half a century — and continues to drive us to remain at the forefront of automotive safety today. Our integrated approach to safety starts by optimizing your ability to stay out of harm’s way, with responsive handling and features such as our pioneering Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and emergency-sensing Brake Assist. When a collision is simply unavoidable, the CLK-Class is prepared to help protect you with a robust structure, advanced safety technologies and the most standard air bags in its class. You might not know what lies ahead, but you can drive confidently knowing your CLK-Class considers your welfare its most important priority. Tele Aid The optional Tele Aid system uses GPS satellites plus a digital cellular link to provide live assistance at the touch of any of three buttons in your CLK-Class. If you need help — or see someone who does — the SOS button is for summoning emergency aid. Press the i-button for information. And the wrench button connects you to our legendary Roadside Assistance. Tele Aid also includes Automatic Collision Notification, which engages the SOS function if an air bag or Emergency Tensioning Device (ETD) deploys, as well as stolen vehicle tracking and remote keyless unlocking service.1 1 First year’s monitoring provided at no cost with subscription. Subscription is required for service to be active. Tele Aid operates only where cellular and Global Positioning System coverage are available. Owner must authorize stolen vehicle tracking and file a police report. 2 Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake system maintenance, and tire and road conditions. 3 WARNING: THE FORCES OF A DEPLOYING AIR BAG CAN CAUSE SERIOUS OR FATAL INJURY TO A CHILD UNDER AGE 13. THE SAFEST SEATING POSITION FOR YOUR CHILD IS IN THE REAR SEAT, BELTED INTO AN APPROPRIATE, PROPERLY INSTALLED CHILD SEAT, OR CORRECTLY WEARING A SEAT BELT IF TOO LARGE FOR A CHILD SEAT. OCS IS DESIGNED TO TURN THE FRONT PASSENGER’S FRONT AIR BAG OFF WHEN THE SYSTEM SENSES THE WEIGHT OF A TYPICAL CHILD 12 MONTHS OLD OR LESS, PLUS THE WEIGHT OF A STANDARD APPROPRIATE CHILD RESTRAINT. SEE OPERATOR’S MANUAL FOR IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THESE SYSTEMS AND FOR FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING THE TRANSPORTATION OF CHILDREN HEAVIER THAN A TYPICAL 12-MONTH-OLD. 4 The roll bar system is designed to enhance the level of rollover protection compared to an open vehicle without one. No system, no matter how sophisticated, can eliminate the chance of injury in an accident. Please always wear your seat belt, and always raise the rear head restraints when the rear seats are occupied. 5 No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires. CLK-Class safety and security. Active Safety Brake Assist To help you avoid an accident: Electronic Stability Program (ESP) 4-wheel multilink suspension Speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion steering 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and Brake Assist Complementing the antilock brakes, Brake Assist can sense a panic stop and automatically apply all available brake power boost instantly, to potentially reduce stopping distances.2 More standard air bags Occupant Classification System Every CLK Coupe provides the protection of eight standard air bags, including four side-impact air bags and Head Protection Curtains. Cabriolets feature head-thorax side air bags in the front seats, plus rear side-impact air bags.3 OCS automatically turns the front passenger’s front air bag on or off — or helps determine its inflation rate — based on the weight category determined by sensor readings from the front passenger seat.3 High-strength/low-alloy steel Side-impact protection Advanced crumple zones HSLA steel is used in critical areas throughout the CLK-Class body shell, to help create an exceptionally rigid structure designed to maximize integrity and minimize chassis flex for improved handling precision. Reinforced doors, door sills, pillars, floorpan and dashboard supports in every CLK-Class are part of an integrated safety structure that affords formidable side-impact protection. Front and rear crumple zones feature fullwidth crossmembers. An ellipsoidal front bulkhead helps transfer some impact energy around the cabin, and staggered underhood components are designed not to stack up as the front zone deforms. Cabriolet side air bags Rollover sensor Electronic Stability Program (ESP) The CLK Cabriolets provide head-thorax side air bags up front, along with rear side-impact air bags.3 If the CLK-Class senses a rollover, it will automatically deploy the seat-belt Emergency Tensioning Devices to help reduce occupant movement, and if deemed necessary, inflate the Head Protection Curtains (Coupes) or pop-up roll bars in Cabriolets.4 In corners, ESP helps to correct oversteer (fishtailing) or understeer (plowing) by selectively applying the brakes to one or more wheels and/or by reducing excess engine power.5 Passive Safety To help protect you in an accident: Seat-belt Emergency Tensioning Devices Seat-belt force limiters A head restraint for every occupant Adaptive dual-stage front air bags Four side-impact air bags and Head Protection Curtains (Coupes) Two head-thorax side air bags for front-seat passengers and two side-impact air bags for rear-seat passengers (Cabriolets) Pop-up roll bars (Cabriolets) Reinforced body structure Optional Tele Aid system Emergency Tensioning Devices and belt force limiters In either a front or rear impact exceeding a preset threshold of severity, ETDs remove slack from front and rear seat belts to help hold you in place. Belt force limiters can help reduce the peak deceleration forces on belted occupants. INSPIRED P14/15 TH E G R E A T E R T H E I N S P I R A T I O N, THE MORE EXQUISITE THE M A S T E R P I E C E. CLK 350 Cabriolet shown with optional designo Silver metallic paint. Whether it’s the elegance of the Coupe’s pillarless design or the rakish lines of the Cabriolet, every CLK is truly art in motion.

An accessory iPod® interface kit4 also is available that allows full integration of your playlists with the audio system and multifunction steering wheel. 1 While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behaviour, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or verbal displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place.

ESP then brakes individual front or rear wheels and/or reduces excess engine power as needed to help correct understeer (plowing) or oversteer (fishtailing). ESP also integrates all-speed traction control, which senses drive-wheel slip under acceleration and individually brakes the slipping wheel or wheels, and/or reduces excess engine power, until control is regained.1 CLK 350 COUPE CLK 350 CABRIOLET CLK 500 COUPE CLK 500 CABRIOLET CLK 55 AMG CABRIOLET 6.6 seconds 12.2 l/100 km 7.7 l/100 km 6.9 seconds 12.8 l/100 km 8.2 l/100 km 5.9 seconds 14.0 l/100 km 8.7 l/100 km 6.2 seconds 14.0 l/100 km 8.7 l/100 km 5.4 seconds 14.4 l/100 km 9.7 l/100 km 1 No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome physics or correct careless driving.

Please always wear your seat belt. 2 Stated rates of acceleration are based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending upon model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load. 3 These estimates are based on the Government of Canada’s approved criteria and testing methods. The actual fuel consumption of this vehicle may vary. Refer to the Fuel Consumption Guide. 4 AMG 18" wheels and accompanying high-speed-rated tires provide substantially increased treadwear and reduced ride comfort compared to H-rated tires. Serious wheel and tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces or upon encountering road debris or obstacles. 5 Z-rated tires are optimized for performance driving and may provide reduced ride comfort, increased tire noise, substantially increased treadwear and greater susceptibility to damage compared with H-rated tires. 6 Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake system maintenance, and tire and road conditions. 7 Coupe interior dimensions are with optional sunroof.

ABS senses impending wheel lockup under heavy braking and pumps the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together (to help maintain stability) as needed up to 30 times per second, to prevent lockup and maintain steering ability. Brake Assist senses emergency braking via the speed at which the driver presses the brake pedal and immediately applies maximum available power boost, potentially reducing the overall stopping distance by eliminating the delay caused by a common human tendency not to brake hard enough, soon enough.
