the 0-62mph time is actually faster, 6.3-6.9s actually, depending which gear setting is chosen from a combination of Drive C, Drive S or Drive M and also with these three can be combined with the tiptronic gear shift, or steering wheel paddles.

also in tiptronic gear or steering wheel paddle gear mode, in any of the C, S or M selections, the revs can pass your quoted 4100 RPM which is why the redline is higher on the rev counter.

the AMG pack, incl. equipment as wheels, body work, gearing, suspenison, tuning and other modifications, comes as standard with the Sport version (above the Elegance and Avantgard versions) and the wheels are set on 18" not 17" by the way.

these size wheels also come in the sport pack upgrade with an Elegance or Avantgard - and non-AMG multispoke wheel is also available on 18" with this upgrade.

if the car has a high equipment level and set-up, and/or has been tuned with for example the Daimler-Chrysler/Mercedes-Benz approved chips (e.g. Brabus), the car can be re-badged as 'CLK 32 S & V6CDI' on the rear boot detail (this can be done with or without the Brabus Chip).
