Mercedes chose a "Mission Impossible" theme, complete with stilted script-reading and allusions to secret messages self-destructing in ten seconds, to intro the CLK63 Black Series. Then they whipped off some sweet LA Guns-grade pyrotechnics, which added paramilitary violence to the CLK63's latent motorial violence. All of the calculated theatrics was set entirely to spotlight AMG's 186-mph 'bahn blazer, which appeared in Formula One safety-car guise. Then, a pair of mock goons stripped off the lights and other F1 accouterments, leaving the Black Series in production trim — that is, 500 horsepower, zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and not a single mispronounced reference to American TV. More specs after the jump.
