There are a few of us who eagerly await the launch of every new era of the most recent and best supercars, and there are a few of us who look extra to the previous for our thrills. SCD founder Adam is the latter, with a craving for vehicles which stir the soul with their character slightly than assault the senses with their outright pace. Maybe as nice an attraction as that although, is the joy and nostalgia of pursuing vehicles you yearned for however couldn’t afford in years passed by.

A kind of vehicles for Adam was launched in 2007, three years earlier than the beginning of SCD, the Mercedes CLK AMG Black Sequence, and with the assistance of JBR Capital, a surprising white instance has joined the SCD fleet after 16 years of craving!

Solely 120 right-hand-drive CLK Black Sequence have been produced from a complete manufacturing run of 500 vehicles which have been solely out there in black, white, silver or crimson. Given their rarity, we really feel they’re nonetheless massively undervalued particularly in comparison with its CLK DTM brother which has doubled in worth over the previous couple of years.

It’s a kind of ‘if you recognize, you recognize’ sort of vehicles we petrolheads love. Most individuals received’t bat an eyelid, however when you cross paths with one other automobile particular person on the petrol station, you’d higher be prepared for a slightly prolonged chat after they ask, “Is {that a} Black Sequence?!”.

It’s a good wager that even AMG’s present entry-level A45 S would lap a observe faster than the CLK Black Sequence, and its computerized gearbox takes a little bit of endurance, 500bhp was a really hefty quantity for its day which nonetheless offers a strong shove within the again, and there’s no substitute for the thunderous soundtrack from that legendary 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8.

Evo Journal stated that the CLK Black Sequence is “some of the thrilling vehicles to ever put on a Mercedes badge, and is AMG at its purest”. We couldn’t agree extra, and we are able to solely see values going a method because it beneficial properties the popularity it deserves. Actually, residuals are already so sturdy that JBR structured an interest-only settlement to benefit from that, making such an iconic automobile a surprisingly inexpensive funding.

Look out for it at occasions and type an orderly queue for a drive!
