2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK230 Avantgarde
Just 14,100 miles from new


Lot details

Registration No: X926 YEX
Chassis No: WDB2083482F177605
MOT: February 2024

  • Just 14,100 miles from new and 3 former keepers
  • Offered with original owners bookpack, handbooks and service book
  • Fitted with aftermarket front and rear parking sensors
  • Large collection of invoices and old MOT certificates

Born from a long line of elegant two-door Mercedes-Benz coupes, the CLK230 was introduced to the UK during 1997. Longer and lower than the C-Class saloon on which it was based, the newcomer was styled after a 1993 concept car. Featuring all-round independent suspension, power steering, ABS disc brakes and traction control, it was propelled by a 2.3 litre Kompressor engine allied to five-speed automatic transmission. With a quoted 193bhp and 207 lb ft on tap, the CLK230 was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 8.4 seconds and 142mph. Despite such performance, Government figures suggested that 28mpg was achievable on the combined cycle. Generously equipped, the Avantgarde model came with air-conditioning, alarm / immobiliser, electric windows, tinted glass, twin front / side airbags and an eight-speaker stereo system as standard.

Offered here is a low mileage CLK230 in Obsidian Black with a two-tone Grey leather interior. With a credible mileage of just 14,100 miles, the Avantgarde spec CLK230 was first registered on 1st of January of 2001 by Robinsons of Norwich, Mercedes Benz dealers and used by them as a demonstrator. It was then sold on in June 2001 to its second owner who kept it until his passing late 2021. The car then passed to the gentleman's son (the third owner). The car was acquired by its current owner on the 1st of March 2022. The second owner had the car maintained by Robinsons until the end of 2012, thereafter it was maintained by Stratton Motor Co (near Norwich) who are Aston Martin dealers.

Upon acquiring the car, the fourth owner has undertaken the relatively small amount of recommissioning work needed to bring the car up to a standard commensurate with its very low mileage. There is an accompanying file of invoices and receipts together with a near complete set of MOT certificates (only 2016 is missing) all of which confirm the very low mileage. There is a full bookpack in the original Mercedes Benz folder including a service book showing 11 stamps in total. Both remote keys are present. The original dealer number plates and rear window decal are present. Aftermarket parking sensors have been fitted.

The invoices and receipts would indicate that this car has been very well cared for, if anything needed to be done it was done. This results in a well-presented example of a very well-preserved car, that still features the original front and rear foot mats and even the original first aid kit. With the next MOT due in February of 2024, it was subject to some mechanical fettling in the last 18 months. Offered with a V5C and a collection of invoices and old MOT paperwork, it is accompanied by the original owner's wallet with the handbook and stamped service book. ‘YEX’ was last serviced in February of 2023.
