Mercedes CLK 550

Mercedes have introduced a new 5.5L V8 powered CLK Class model.

Power jumps to 388 bhp from last years 302 bhp model, which means a not too shabby 0-62 mph time of 5.2 seconds. This is over half a second faster than the 2006 model, yet fuel consumption remains the same. The mean people at Mercedes have limited top speed to 155 mph.
