The Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class may have been built to cruise around wrapped in luxury as a mid-size grand tourer, but its stint with motorsports series such as Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) showed that it could deliver hardcore performance. The CLK55 AMG coupe was one such road-going high-performance brute, and now it’s bringing the pain with RSV Forged Wheels, a full Sarto Racing/Rocket Bunny widebody kit with Heasman Steering upgrades and a complete 2SUS Custom Resprays all by Built To Order.
This Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG and its mighty 5.4-liter V-8 with 362 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of torque was the perfect starting point for a widebody project. It’s potent powertrain and thrilling performance means that this is not just all-show and no-go. It’s a German muscle car in Australia and it’s ready to carve some corners.
The Heasman Steering CLK55 AMG features a full Sarto Racing/Rocket Bunny widebody kit by the specialists at Built To Order. The aggressive widebody kit isn’t your average bolted-on kit fitted after slicing up the factory construction; it was professionally installed with the help of custom-tailored metal inner tubs and guards from Heasman Steering that give the muscular widebody a clean and smooth fitment without affecting the standard construction.
The addition of the Sarto Racing/Rocket Bunny widebody kit with Heasman Steering guards instantly showcases the performance capabilities of the Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG Coupe. The German sports car was also given a fresh coat of custom paint by 2SUS Custom Resprays that makes it stand out from the Teutonic crowd even more.
But Built To Order wasn’t finished with the Heasman Steering CLK55 AMG by any means. The factory wheels were swapped out for a set of stunning RSV Forged Wheels. The RS5Y wheels from the RSV S2-Series feature a dynamic five double-spoke design with reverse lip style that emphasizes power and performance, and were the perfect match for the German coupe.
The RSV RS5Y forged three-piece deep concave wheels wear a bespoke matte textured gray center with gloss black lip and fluorescent green inner that complement the new paint while grabbing attention. Up front, these forged wheels measure 10.0 x 19 while the rear comes in with a wider 11.0 x 19 setup. Hardcore, street-legal Toyo R888 tires are worn by all four wheels and allow the Heasman Steering CLK55 AMG to be pushed to the very limits of grip on the asphalt.
Whether it’s a canyon cruise or hardcore track day, the Heasman Steering CLK55 AMG is ready to tear things up and do it in style.
